Stepping up, giving back.
Through Tinte Cellars, we aim to blend our passion for creating exceptional wine with our deep commitment to engaging others and helping our community to thrive. After all, one of the very best things about great wine is its ability to bring people together.
Community, volunteerism and philanthropy formed the foundation of our upbringing; our culture. When we established Tinte Cellars, it was essential that the business reflect these values and our desire to leave the world better than we found it. This is why we donate a significant portion of our sales each year to help nonprofits further their missions in our community. However, being part of a community is about much more than writing checks. We invest in a wide range of programs and activities to enable our customers, employees and partners to amplify their own positive impact on the world.
Tinte Giving Program
We donate a percentage of all sales to charities, right off the top.
Each year, Tinte Cellars selects two to four nonprofit organizations to receive a portion of all wine sales. Five percent of all retail sales and 10% of all wine club sales is split equally between the recipients. The wine club sales contribution is especially significant, as it represents the vast majority of our sales.
The Mary’s Place mission is to provide safe, inclusive shelters and services that support women, children and families on their journey out of homelessness.
The mission of Northwest Harvest is to lead the fight to bring nutritious food to hungry people across Washington state while respecting their dignity and promoting good health.
Other ways we support our community
Our commitment to community doesn’t stop at the donations we make to nonprofits. Tinte is also committed to supporting our community through a broad array of programs and initiatives. These programs also enable us to provide more—and more flexible—ways to support area nonprofits and provide our customers and employees with opportunities to amplify their impact and give back in whatever way is most meaningful to them.
Wine Club Member Giving
For our charter (first year) Tinte Cellars wine club members, we make an annual donation (valued at $150) to an approved charity of their choosing. We also prioritize requests from our club members for donations to the charity auctions, fundraisers and events that are near and dear to their hearts.
We match donations from Tinte Cellars employees (up to $150/year) to an approved charity of their choosing.
Volunteer Opportunities & Special Events
We organize groups of employees, wine club members, and the general public to come together with Tinte Cellars and volunteer throughout the community. We also host special fundraising events on-site with partner nonprofits and participate in off-site charity events.
