Our Causes

Our Causes

Our mission at Wishful is to provide premium, small-batch, sustainably-sourced coffee for a cause.  For every bag of coffee sold, we will donate 20% of proceeds to charitable organizations and causes; further, we will donate our time and freshly prepared coffee when volunteer opportunities arise to support our charitable partners. Below are the organizations we've worked with so far.

Navajo Relief Fund

The Navajo Relief Fund aims to help Native Americans improve the quality of their lives by providing opportunities for them to bring about positive changes in their own communities. Donations towards this unique Program of Partnership with Native Americans help provide disaster relief, healthy living assistance, and restock supplies of food & essentials. If you would like to learn more about the Navajo Relief Fund, please click here.

 

Power The Polls

Power The Polls is powered by partnerships between non-profits and businesses, such as the National Disability Rights Network, Fair Elections Center, Comedy Central, and Patagonia.  They aim to recruit low-COVID-risk poll workers to ensure safe, free, and fair elections, while simultaneously activating businesses to get involved.  If you would like to learn more about Power The Polls, please click here

As part of our work with Power The Polls, our donation will benefit Pizza To The Polls, a non-profit dedicated to 'making democracy delicious' and keeping spirits high by delivering fresh food to polling places with long lines.  Beyond a monetary donation, we are aiming to volunteer our time (and some freshly brewed Democracy Blend) to help Pizza To The Polls serve Philadelphia in the days leading up to the Nov. 3 election.  If you'd like to learn more about Pizza To The Polls, please click here.

 

Civic Alliance

The Civic Alliance is a non-partisan group of businesses working together to build a future where everyone participates in shaping our country.  We've joined the Civic Alliance alongside over 350 other companies dedicated to encouraging civic participation and championing civic engagement opportunities in our nation's communities.  If you would like to learn more about the Civic Alliance, please click here.  Additionally, our official press release announcing our membership to the Civic Alliance can be found here.

 

ACLU

Founded in 1920, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is the nation's foremost guardian of liberty. They are a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to defending and protecting our individual rights and personal freedoms.  Through advocacy, education and litigation, attorneys, advocates and volunteers work to preserve and promote civil liberties including the freedom of speech, the right to privacy, reproductive freedom, and equal treatment under the law. They stand in defense of the rights of women and minorities, workers, students, immigrants, gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people, and others who have seen bias and bigotry threaten the rights afforded to all of us in this country by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. 

Wishful's specific focus is local to our roots, helping the Philadelphia chapter of the ACLU with donations and volunteer hours.  If you'd like to learn more about the ACLU, please click here
