Help Fund Our Grant Program!
The grant program is Go Fund Bean's flagship project. In September 2020, we began giving grants to hourly coffee workers who were economically impacted by COVID-19, and have been doing it quarterly since. Over time, we have given out over 70 grants, at a range of $250-$500 each, for a total of $44,000 to baristas in need.
Even though the pandemic is waning now, the effects of it still reverberate throughout the coffee industry in the form of fewer jobs, debt built up due to inadequate social support, and the cost of ongoing medical treatment. We're still trying to support those coffee workers through our grants.
While the majority of the funding for these grants does come from our corporate partners, like Melitta, JNP Coffee, and Torani, many people have asked us how they can help us on a smaller scale. So we created this rolling fundraiser as well--if you feel moved by the grant program and how it has helped people, you can donate here. Even just a few dollars helps us keep this program going.
