Friday, May 14th. Cheers to the Wiseman. Drink one for Dane. End ALS. Fifteen years strong.


Drink One for Dane began after Dutch Bros co-founder, Dane Boersma, was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).

While Dane passed away in 2009, his fight to end ALS continues through his family and Dutch Bros’ annual giveback, Drink One for Dane. Dutch Bros is committed to increasing awareness of the disease, raising support for those affected and supporting research to find treatments and cures for ALS through our partnership with the Muscular Dystrophy Association.


  • Drink One for Dane is an annual fundraiser that started in 2007 in honor of one of our co-founders, Dane, who fought ALS for several years before passing away in 2009. Every year, we raise funds for the MDA to support ALS research and services. To date, we’ve raised more than $8.4 million!

  • This year, Drink One for Dane is Friday, May 14th!

  • Proceeds from Drink One for Dane are donated to the MDA to help find a cause and cure for ALS! This year, we hope to raise $1.6 million!

  • We love what every organization fighting ALS is doing! That said, the MDA is an awesome organization that has a national footprint and a mission that aligns with our goals to support the fight against ALS! Proceeds go directly to the organization to increase awareness of the disease, raise support for those affected and to support research to find treatments and cures for ALS!
