Here’s a snippet explaining who we are and what we do. We invite you to check out our transparency page for more!
Drink for Pink is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that partners with local organizations within Colorado to raise money for breast cancer. We hold ourselves to three main values:
- Local – all of our money stays in the state of Colorado.
- Transparent – we publish a full rundown each year (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020) of where your donation dollars go.
- Research – we’re focused exclusively on research. In fact, we can tell you which lab benefited from our funds (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020)!
In 2015, we raised $4,000. In 2016, we hit $8,000. We’re now looking forward to surpassing the $100,000 mark in 2021 with your help.
For divvying out the actual donation, we partner with Cancer League of Colorado and their research review process. They’re another awesome nonprofit with similar goals to Drink for Pink. At the end of each year, we write a check including our entire available funds and send that to Cancer League. They have a team of researchers review incoming grants and identify the most promising proposals. Our funds are then awarded to a recipient in the breast cancer space within that group. In that way, we can be sure that our funds are being dedicated to the best possible ideas.
We’re a small team that’s looking to make a big difference.

Drink for Pink is an organization that is driven 100% by its volunteer base. It is their impact and generosity that has helped us achieve great heights since our inception in 2015. One of those volunteers is Matt Kulbe, an incredible human who believed in Drink for Pink from day 1 and helped bridge our relationship to Cancer League of Colorado. When we met Matt, his mother Terri was fighting Breast Cancer. We were deeply saddened when she lost her fight in 2017. Working together with the Kulbe’s, we put together a Celebration of Life event Drink for Pink style with a beer brewed specifically for the event. This tribute video will forever be a strong reminder of why we do what we do.
