Created in 2013, the Bartenders Benevolent Fund is a nationally registered non-profit and financial resource for hospitality professionals in Canada.
The Bartenders Benevolent Fund’s mandate is to offer support to the hospitality industry, by the hospitality industry.
We provide funding for those who have fallen under serious financial hardship, and programming to elevate our industry and those within it.
Although we have some operational costs, we are mostly powered by volunteers from across the country, who help us to provide support and resources to hospitality professionals throughout Canada. Our funds are awarded anonymously by local hospitality professionals from each market.
Connect and inspire past, present, and future hospitality workers through advocacy, programming, financial support, and fundraising to foster a healthy, equitable, and thriving community.
Our core values are deeply rooted in Selfless SERVICE:
Supporting one another during troubled times
Empathy to your situation
Value the bartending community at large
Inclusion - Offering an inclusive application process to those in need
Community minded non-profit, serving those who serve us all
Earnest - The Bartenders Benevolent Fund works in earnest to support our hospitality community at large during times of hardship
The Bartenders Benevolent Fund operates thanks to our volunteers who donate their time, experience and insight to keep the BBF moving.
