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.

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.

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.

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.

Fridge Etc. is a Cincinnati-based initiative created to nourish our communities through mutual aid by offering solutions to food scarcity and food waste. Powered by kindness, generosity, and most importantly, love, we firmly believe that feeding oneself is not a privilege, but a right.
Fridge Etc. was founded by Jordan Tuss and Toncia Chavez as a direct result of food scarcity and food waste in our Cincinnati community. With food insecurity at an all-time high, keeping our communities fed is now more important than ever. Fridge Etc.'s goals are to keep building community and installing more free refrigerators across the city and to educate people along the journey.
EarthJustice is a nonprofit legal organization dedicated to litigating environmental issues. Their work ensures Earth is represented in legal battles and seeks vital protections for Earth's natural and environmental resources. Similar to Wishful, they are "in the business of building a better future," and their work is commendable to the highest degree.
Ukraine Crisis Fund
Eight years of armed conflict in eastern Ukraine has already killed thousands of civilians and put millions in need of humanitarian assistance. Full-scale war in Ukraine is having catastrophic consequences. More than 1 million people have fled Ukraine in response to Russia's invasion, and millions more could follow. The COVID-19 pandemic is an added challenge for communities where violence and uncertainty takes a heavy toll.
We are proud to support the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund to help support humanitarian assistance in impacted communities in Ukraine and surrounding regions where Ukrainian refugees have fled. Support of the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund will be used to provide:
- Shelter, food, and clean water for refugees
- Health and psychosocial support
- Access to education and economic assistance
- And more
We are also open to suggestions of organizations to work with! If you would like to provide us organizations to consider for our next donation, please email us here.
