FUNDRAISING MADE EASY

We Do the Heavy Lifting for You

As parents we were tired of the constant fundraising efforts required to support our kids' activities. While they were taken on with great intentions, many of them didn't make sense or fit our lifestyle. Over the last 25 years we've seen them all: products we didn't want to buy or use, restaurant nights that didn't fit our busy schedules, craft/bake sales that felt like we were just exchanging money between each other, and all-day/weekend events that took a village to pull off and cost almost as much as they raised.   

We knew there had to be a better way so we launched the ability to raise funds with The Great Coffee Project. Read below to find out just how easy it is!

How to Get Started

Create a custom link to drive your fundraising

Step 1

Create Your Custom Link

Every nonprofit has an EIN.  It's like the organization's social security number but it is publicly available.  If you don't know your organization's EIN you can ask your treasurer or search the database with the button below.

Once you have your EIN, remove any dashes in it and add it to this link:  https://thegreatcoffeeproject.com/?sgcause= '

Example: https://thegreatcoffeeproject.com/?sgcause=416011702 is for the Mayo Clinic where the EIN is 41-6011702

If you don't have an EIN check out FAQ #2 at the bottom of this page.  

Find Your EIN
Share your link on social media

Step 2

Share Your Link

Share your link through social media, newsletters, emails, a posted QR code, or any other available means with everyone.

Each time your link is used to buy coffee, you raise 15% of every sale for your organization

Don't forget, encouraging your supporters to purchase a coffee subscription means you only have to ask once, but you raise money each time their subscription fulfills!

We are building a private Facebook community with resources like templates, tips, and success stories.  Use the button to join below where we can answer all of your questions.
