Information on our Past Collection Drives and Fundraisers
Kentucky’s Original Black Bourbon Enthusiasts (KOBBE) is a philanthropic organization devoted to making change. Humanitarian action is at the forefront of all that KOBBE does, and bourbon is the throughline. Through whiskey raffles, auctions, membership engagement, and our annual soiree, Bourbon & Benevolence, KOBBE has raised over $75,000 in charitable giving.
At our start, we began curating donation drives for low-income communities – from books to school supplies, to non-perishables, to toys & more. We’ve since evolved into providing funding directly to organizations doing the work we admire most.
Shop on Amazon with Amazon Smile and the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of your purchase price to our organization.
You can make a donation by PayPal or Venmo.
