Dads’ Liquid Therapy is a nonprofit organization comprised of local groups of dads that like to get together, build community, drink beer and raise money for charity.
Over $75,000 Loaned
In the first 10 years of Dads’ Liquid Therapy, from 2012 – 2023* we raised and loaned over $75,000 to dads in other countries through Kiva.org.
*We lost a year due to Covid-19
For monthly Dads’ Liquid Therapy nights, each brewery, distillery or bar visited will typically donate the first drink (micro-brew or moderately price cocktail) to each member. Each Dad will then make a charitable donation for that drink. The rest of your drinks are pay as you go.
Donations go into the Dads’ Liquid Therapy account that supplies our www.Kiva.org account with funds to provide Micro Finance loans to help fathers in the developing world build businesses to help end poverty. It is a great “excuse” to grab a drink, make new friends, and make the world a better place.
Dads’ Liquid Therapy groups currently meet in Fort Collins, CO and Portland, ME. If you are interested in starting a Dads’ Liquid Therapy group in your community please feel free to reach out to Robert Crow at firstname.lastname@example.org
Every time we get together, we drink beer. Money from each beer goes back to our non-profit where 100% of proceeds go to charity.
Since all of the money (with the exception of Kiva’s operational costs) is distributed as micro-loans, once paid back to the Dads’ Liquid Therapy account they are subsequently re-donated to a new recipient. Brilliant, really!
We meet once a month and destinations range from breweries, to whiskey tastings, to archery ranges (definitely BEFORE a trip to a brewery), to Laser Tag (also, sadly, before a trip to a brewery).
Attendees are encouraged to bike to the location, get rides, hitchhike, or share cabs home. And of course, always drink responsibly.
