When I started Good Sugar Baking I knew that I couldn’t just have a bakery. I have wanted to work with nonprofits for a long time and even though I’ve gained a lot of knowledge and understanding on how working in the nonprofit world works, I never found a position that I knew I would enjoy fully with one. I’ve always been a fan of supporting others, whether it’s collaborating together to create delicious meals, craft beers, or whatever, it has always been important to me.
So it’s important to me that my own business supports others. That’s why a percentage of every sale goes to a nonprofit. Although I know that at the beginning I might not be giving as much as I’d like to just because I’m starting off small, it’s still better than nothing. My hope is that I work with nonprofits who want to include Good Sugar Baking in any of their events, letting me volunteer alongside them, hand out cookies, whatever the case may be.
I’m really excited about this new partnered nonprofit. Minds Matter of Denver is a pretty great organization. I spent a lot of time researching this nonprofit so I could properly tell people what this nonprofit does and how it benefits our community.
Minds Matter supports students from low income families by preparing them for college and their future. When I first moved to Denver, I taught tennis to low income family students and I really enjoyed it. It was with a different nonprofit (future partnership!) and it really opened up my eyes to the importance of helping those who have a lower income, even if it is just teaching some kids how to play a sport that they don’t really care about.
I look forward to working with Minds Matter and providing them with some help as well!
