OMAHA, Nebraska (May 13, 2024) – Education and health programs for women and children will expand after three nonprofit organizations received a newly created Community Impact Grant from the Scoular Foundation.

Scoular on Monday announced the recipients of the annual grants, totaling $50,000 from the foundation to support innovative organizations that solve challenges in communities where Scoular employees work and live. One of the recipients is our foundation:

Bourbon Women Foundation, $15,000 grant: This foundation supports women in the beverage alcohol industry through educational opportunities. The Scoular grant will allow the foundation to more quickly launch a new scholarship program nationwide to support women seeking formal training, such as a distilling certificate. Alicia Burton, Scoular’s Kentucky-based distilling market specialist, is a member of the national Board of the Bourbon Women Association. She received a Bourbon Women Foundation grant in 2021 to attend the association’s signature event, SIPosium.

“We are extremely excited that Scoular chose our foundation as one of the recipients of its Community Impact Grant,” said Brittany Allison, the foundation’s chair. “We believe our new scholarship program focusing on women pursing degrees or certificates in distilling or fermentation will ultimately lead to a more diverse workforce in the spirits industry.”
