Mission Statement

Public giving can be an awkward affair- but in some cases it makes sense to bring giving out into the open. That being said, our company has been a member of 1% for Humanity, and has incorporated funding humanitarian-based not-for-profits since our inception. For us, this is a commitment that keeps larger priorities and issues in front of us. It keeps us aware of a humanity broader than the one we experience on a day-to-day basis. No pride, no badges, no guilt here- just a simple, proactive way to keep others in view and to help as we are able.

SO…we like people, you like people, and some people in Ethiopia need clean water. Let’s work together on a simple, attainable goal of building one well for a community that needs it. Our $10,000 goal will build this well, and provide clean water for around 500 people for at least 20 years (on average). This means less waterborne illness and death, and frees up valuable time for productivity and education in these communities.

We're donating $3,000 to kick-off the project and will match each dollar you give (on this page) up to $3,500, to reach our total goal of $10,000 before Dec. 31st. We're going public with this effort because we need the participation of our friends to help make it happen. We'd be thrilled to have you join us. Thanks for your support!

Love,
Dogwood Coffee Company
