Welcome to Negroni Week, presented by Imbibe Magazine and Campari. Negroni Week launched in 2013 as a celebration of one of the world’s great cocktails and an effort to raise money for charities around the world. From 2013 to 2017, Negroni Week grew from about 120 participating venues to over 7,700 venues around the world, and to date, they have collectively raised nearly $1.5 million for charitable causes.
For one week every June, bar and restaurants mix classic Negronis and Negroni variations for a great cause. To participate, each venue signs up at negroniweek.com, chooses from our list of official charity partners, and makes an immediate donation to that charity. Then they can return during and after Negroni Week to make additional donations to their chosen charity. After Negroni Week is complete, we tally up how much was raised collectively by all of our participating bars, restaurants and partners.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the dates of this year's Negroni Week?
June 4-10, 2018.
How do I participate in Negroni Week as a bar or restaurant?
Simply head to our sign-up page and fill out the sign-up form. This year, you will be required to make a donation upon signing up your venue to participate in Negroni Week. You will also have a preselected list of charities from around the world to choose from. Once you fill out the sign-up form and make your upfront donation to one of those charities, we’ll list you as a participating bar, and if you’re planning to host a special event during Negroni Week, we’ll gladly promote that as well. During and after Negroni Week, you will also have the opportunity to return to the Negroni Week site, log into your account, and make an additional donation.
How do I find out which Venue/Bar/Restaurants are participating?
Visit Venues and you’ll find a full list that’s searchable by state and city.
I signed up my bar on the website, but I'm trying to log into my profile and forgot my password. How do I change or retrieve it?
It’s easy! Simply click on Venue Sign In at the top right of website’s navigation bar, and you’ll see a button on that page that says FORGOT YOUR PASSWORD? Click there and follow the instructions.
If I participated last year, can I sign up with my existing account information?
Absolutely! Simply click on Venue Sign In link at the top right of website’s navigation bar. Once you log in, you will be able to update your account information, make your donation and confirm your participation for this year. If you forgot your login password, you’ll see a button on that page that says FORGOT YOUR PASSWORD? Click there and follow the instructions.
Can I edit my profile after it's live on the website?
Yes! Simply click on Venue Sign In link at the top right of website’s navigation bar. Once you log in, you will be able to update your account information. If you forgot your login password, you’ll see a button on that page that says FORGOT YOUR PASSWORD? Click there and follow the instructions.
Is there a deadline to sign up for Negroni Week?
Yes! You must sign up by June 1, 2018 at 11:59 PST in order to be added to the official list of participants.
Why am I required to make an upfront donation in order to sign up for Negroni Week?
In an effort to streamline Negroni Week for both participants and charities, we decided to incorporate the donations into the sign-up process. This way, bars can immediately decide how much they want to donate to and to whom. At the same time, this allows the charities to easily and quickly know exactly who has donated to them and how much they will be receiving. The goal is a much easier system for everyone.
What types of payments do you accept for donations?
Donations must be made online via the negroniweek.com site, and you can use all major credit cards. All donations are processed in US dollars, so if you make a donation from outside of the US, the amount will automatically be converted to your currency on your credit card statement.
Will I be charged a processing fee with my donation?
Yes, there’s a small processing fee of 2.9% + 30 cents per transaction. This is not an extra charge; it will be deducted from your donation.
How much of my donation goes to the charity I chose?
After credit card processing fees (2.9% + 3 cents per transaction), the rest of your donation will go to your chosen charity.
Can I make more than one donation?
Absolutely! Every participating venue has the option to make as many donations as they’d like until donations officially close after Negroni Week. We hope that you will be inspired to come back and donate more than once. To do so, you’ll simply log into your account at negroniweek.com and make another donation through the secure payment system.
Can I make a donation with cash or a check?
No. We only accept donations via credit card payment on negroniweek.com.
Do you store credit card information for future donations?
No, we do not store any credit card information on this website, so each time you make a donation, you will enter a credit card.
Can I change my charity after I've made a donation?
No. Once you select your charity and process your donation, that donation is final and you cannot change your charity. You will have a chance to change your charity if you so choose before you make a donation.
If I'm signing up multiple bars/restaurants, can I select different charities for each?
If you want to keep all of your venues under one account, the same charity selection will be applied to each of those. In order to select a different charity for each venue, you’ll need to sign up each one separately. That will also allow you to apply different donation amounts to each, if you so choose.
How long will it take for my venue's profile to be published on the website?
Once you’ve completed all of the information required to sign up and you’ve made a successful donation through the website, you’re profile will be immediately published.
I registered my venue, but it's not published on the website—what's going on?
There are only two reasons why a registered venue would not show up as published on the website. Either you have not completed some piece of information that’s required upon signing up, or you have not successfully processed your donation. If you log into your account, you should be able to tell if this is the case. If you’ve completed all of the required information and successfully processed a donation and your venue is still not published, feel free to email us at [email protected] and we’ll try to get to the bottom of it.
What happens if I start the sign-up process but don't complete a donation?
Your venue profile will not be published until you’ve made a successful donation through the website. Until then, your profile will be saved as a draft and marked as pending in your account.
Is my donation tax-deductible?
Donations are tax-deductible in accordance with the laws in each state/country. Refer to your local tax consultant for more information.
What if I don't receive a receipt from the charity I donated to?
You can either reach out to the charity directly to request a receipt, or we’re happy to help facilitate that. If you have trouble, email us at [email protected]
When will the charities receive their donations?
Once Negroni Week is over and all donations have been collected via the Nergoni Week website, the funds will be distributed to the charities listed on negroniweek.com based on how much was raised for each charity. You should receive an acknowledgement letter from each charity after the completion of Negroni Week.
Do Campari and Imbibe make any donations as part of Negroni Week?
Yes! During Negroni Week, Imbibe is donating a portion of online subscription sales as well as Negroni Week apparel sales to Mercy Corps and No Kid Hungry. Imbibe will also be making a $5,000 donation to the charity chosen by a randomly selected participating venue. Campari will be making a donation to each of our official charity partners, as well as $10,000 toward matching the top contributing participant’s donation to its chosen charity.
How are charities chosen for Negroni Week?
Our charity partner list is comprised of organizations that have been popular choices among participating bars and restaurants during past Negroni Week. The list also includes a diverse mix of charitable causes covering areas around the world.
Is there any way for you to add my favorite charity to the list of charities for 2019?
Sorry, but our 2018 list is already finalized and we’re currently accepting donations for those charities, so we cannot add any others to the list this year. But we’d be happy to consider your charity recommendation for 2019, so feel free to send us details about why you think they’d be a great addition to the list.
How can I recommend a charity for possible inclusion in the future?
We’d love to hear your suggestions! Email us at [email protected] with information about the charity you’re recommending.
I'm a consumer—can I make a donation on the website?
Currently, online donations are only open to participating bars and restaurants. In the meantime, you can still show your support by patronizing your favorite participating bars and restaurants who you know have made donations upon signing up.
