The Pint Project is a local nonprofit agency dedicated to providing assistance to first responders and their families who have served their community and are now facing a life crisis. Through grant funding, community fundraising, individual and corporate donations and contributions from the San Diego brewery community, we are able to provide financial support when needed most. Beyond financial support, The Pint Project also pledges to increases awareness, prevention and early detection of cancer for firefighters while remaining a viable resource for those receiving a diagnosis. Because of the generous support of the community and fellow first responders 80% of all event proceeds are donated directly to the beneficiary with 20% covering operational and administrative costs. 100% of proceeds from direct donations through our website go to the beneficiary.

Who we are
We are The Pint Project, a non-profit corporation, 501(c)3. Founded in 2014 by Chris and Christina Danner, The Pint Project began as a way to help a local fire family and friend facing a cancer diagnosis. With connections in the flourishing San Diego craft brewing scene, the Danners collaborated with a local brewery to hold its first of many successful events benefiting the EMS community. With one successful event completed, The Pint Project was born and quickly grew becoming a source of support for San Diego fire fighters, paramedics, nurses and law enforcement.
