The Christermon Foundation is a non-profit organization of the Beverage Alcohol Industry. It was established in 1987
to support worthy charities and develop a scholarship program. The mission of the Foundation is to demonstrate and
promote a positive image for our industry within the community.
Since 1988 the Foundation has awarded over 5.2 million dollars to California students and US Citizens whose parents
and/or grandparents are proprietors of, or employed by an individual or corporation holding a California liquor license. This includes restaurants, retailers, distributors, airlines, suppliers, hotels, on-premise, etc.
Beverage Industry Scholarships are sponsored and supported by manfacturers, suppliers, distributors and customers within the industry.

companies. Scholarship checks for the total amount donated by corporate sponsors are mailed directly to
the students college toward tuition and housing.
