The California Artisan Cheese Guild is a 501-C6 non-profit and relies upon the support of businesses and individuals such as you. We raise money to support our outreach and educational efforts through membership dues, fundraisers, The California Artisan Cheese Festival, in-kind support and sponsorships. Join us as we support California finest artisan food producers and make our State the most delicious place on Earth to live. Here are ways to do that:

Donations: Do you have products or service that might benefit the Guild? Do you print t-shirts? Can you assist in grant writing? Do you have a product or service that we could use as a raffle prize or silent auction item during our October Guild fundraiser? We appreciate your support and would love to plug your business or products when appropriate.

Events: We participate in and host a number of annual events.  Below are some examples of events we’ve been part of in years past. If you are interested in inviting our Guild or Guild members to participate in an event you are organizing, fill out this form (as far in advance as possible prior to the event). We will do our best to respond to your inquiry but cannot guarantee a response.
