Know How We Give Back
Collaboration and Community excite us! We believe that we can give back and grow our business simultaneously – thoughtfully. Our primary focus for 2020 will be Women’s Causes.
CowgirlQ Community Grant
The San Diego region is home to over 10,000 nonprofits, giving back to their communities in any number of ways. To help with these efforts, we ask that regional nonprofits apply by filling out an application with a compelling story as to why they should be selected for the CowgirlQ Community Grant. A distinguished group of community leaders will select one recipient to receive a free fundraising event for their cause.
CowgirlQ Wedding Reception Grant
Everyone appreciates a good love story and we want to add to a couple’s tale. Experienced wedding planners will apply on behalf of an engaged couple and our CowgirlQ team will select the lucky couple based on their unique story, including their financial situation.
We are serious about reducing our food waste and helping those in our communities. Through weekly client donations of leftover prepared foods, as well as extra food in our refrigerators, we are able to distribute much needed resources to a network of homeless shelters and recovery programs.
We want to make it easy for our clients to support the San Diego Food Bank, as well. By inviting guests to donate shelf stable food items upon arrival at the event, we can work together to make a difference. We are partnering with the San Diego Food Bank to build a donation program around events on a year-round basis, not just around the holidays.
Community Collaborations in Our Kitchen
On a quarterly basis, we will co-host community gatherings in our kitchen with partners who tie into CowgirlQ – from craft brewers to eclectic artists. Proceeds from tickets sold will go to their chosen non-profit.
Client Fundraising Donations
Our clients often have their own fundraising campaigns throughout the year and we strive to support these. We are setting aside $2,000 each quarter to distribute among efforts related to our annual cause.
