Dobbes Charitable Giving Program

Wine is about coming together. It’s about family, friends, ideas, conversation and sharing. And at Dobbes Family Estate, we are committed to giving back to the community that gives us life. It’s an integral part of who we are as individuals, and so it has become an integral part of our business.

During a company retreat brainstorming session, we attempted to decide on an organization to support in the name of Dobbes Family Estate.

Not surprisingly, we found that each individual wanted to support a different cause, and all were deserving. Thus came the dawn of our Dobbes Charitable Giving Program.

Each quarter, a different employee has the opportunity to select a cause that has special meaning to them. During that quarter we feature a wine and donate 10 percent of its sales to the chosen charity.

My name is Joe Dobbes and I am the founder & winemaker of Dobbes Family Estate.  I am the proud to support  The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention OregonAccording to current data, suicide is the 10th leading cause of death for Americans with someone in this country dying by suicide every 13.7 minutes. After losing family members to suicide, I’m passionate about helping people see that death is not the answer. The American Foundation For Suicide Prevention focuses on eliminating the loss of life from suicide by delivering innovative prevention programs, educating the public about risk factors and warning signs, raising funds for suicide research and programs along with reaching out to those individuals who have lost someone to suicide.

Thank you for your support of this much-needed cause and a huge cheers to you for helping us to support them.

As a company, we also donate time and money to organizations like Salud, the Dundee Parent Club, Newberg Education Foundation, Doernbecher, Family Building Blocks and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
