Giving Back

Growing up, my parents constantly volunteered my siblings and me to help out at any event. We participated in everything from working the ticket booth at the school carnival to cleaning dishes after serving dinners at the local homeless shelter. In our house, it was very much Community first.

When we started the Stephen James Curated Coffee Collection, one of the first items the team discussed was how to address Community Impact. How could we help focus the impact on our company and our consumers? We wanted a clear focus on personal causes for our team and then figured out how to create a more significant effect on hand-picked charities.

Then we were introduced to the GIVZ app. This integration would allow us to feature three specific charities while still enabling our consumers to direct donations towards their preferred causes. Now you can control where the dollars generated from your purchase are going - and for us, that was the ultimate win.

Each purchase from our site allows you, the consumer, to help promote a positive impact throughout our Community.

Pelotonia is a community that is determined to see an end to Cancer! This fantastic organization has raised over 217 million dollars that directly support the research community - focusing solely on ending Cancer.  

Every August, they host a beautiful scenic ride throughout central Ohio, allowing riders the opportunity to both fundraise and promote health and wellness with a 102mi bike ride. While each rider's reasoning is personal, the goal is the same - to End Cancer.

100% of all rider donations fund direct research, and we are thrilled to participate.
