Safety Net: Catching Bartenders

By Genevieve Porter posted 11-20-2020 15:10


The U.S. bartender industry is overworked, underinsured, and has taken an extraordinary hit this year due to COVID-19. The Bartender Emergency Assistance Program (BEAP) at the USBG Foundation exists to be a safety net to those in our industry facing unforeseen and/or catastrophic life events such as an accident, acute medical diagnosis, or wind, water, earth, or fire related natural disasters. The BEAP is here to make sure that people don’t fall through the cracks just because they are injured, displaced, or have another emergency event take place. 

We are expecting to need $600,000 in 2021 in order to keep the BEAP safety net open. Will you help us catch them? Your donation can help us strengthen that net. Please donate today at
