Seeing as how it’s almost the end of September, I want to give a HUGE thank you to Minds Matter of Denver. They have been the nonprofit for the past couple of months and have been awesome to work with! I’ve loved this partnership and hope that we can continue partnering together in many ways for many years.
Stop by Zuni Street Brewing this Thursday from 5-8pm for live music, limited supply of sample cookies and $1 of every pint sold is going to Minds Matter!
Good Sugar Baking has seen a lot of growth within this quarter. From adding more Beer and Cookie pairings, gaining more accounts, creating new cookies and meeting many new people, it has been an incredible time. A lot of that has happened because of the ability to partner with great nonprofits around the world. Minds Matter does substantial work not only in the Denver community but across the country as well. I’m excited to see them grow more and more. I can’t wait to get them their check for all of the work they have helped Good Sugar accomplish.
Now it’s time to announce a new nonprofit for the next quarter!
This nonprofit comes from one of the Kickstarter backers. It’s perfect timing because they are located in Florida and have been dealing with some of the hurricane. The nonprofit is Foundation for Foster Children. You can learn more by going to their website: https://foundationforfosterchildren.org/
I will be writing a post shortly to tell you more about Foundation for Foster Children!
Can you believe that summer is basically over?! Everyone’s heading back to school, vacation time is winding down and I’m already thinking about what to do with the upcoming seasons.
What’s really cool is this means lots of meetings, lots of events and lots of stress for many people. Good thing there’s a bakery in town where a percentage of every sale goes to a nonprofit (here’s to you, Minds Matter!).
Speaking of Minds Matter, what a great time to be partnered up with such an outstanding nonprofit. They help prepare students for their future by providing them with the necessary tools to success. It’s a perfect time to be aware of everyone’s future!
I’ve been able to fulfill a couple of back to school cookie needs and would love to get some more! Remember that not only do the kids need cookies but so does the staff, so whether you’re a teacher, parent or just want to give some sweets, keep Good Sugar Baking in mind! You can reach out to me here to place a cookie order.
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!
