We believe that being an active member of the community is an essential part of a thriving business. We would not be here if it weren’t for the support from our neighbors, and we want to impact our neighborhood in the most positive way we believe we can.

With that in mind, we believe we can provide the most impact by giving all of our charitable resources to one organization a year. There are so many worthy organizations that are doing really important things, and although we would love to be able to give to them all, we simply cannot.


Our 2019 organization is Women's Advocates, the first domestic violence shelter in the nation, located right here in St. Paul, MN. They are a fantastic resource for women, offering shelter, daycare, food, classes and education, pro bono lawyers, and more. If you are also interested in working with this organization or would like to understand their mission, please visit

If you are requesting a donation from The Buttered Tin please send the request to and we would be happy to consider your organization for the following year.
