The success of Coffee Culture has been built on the backs of great young people giving their guts to provide out of this world service and make great coffee. And we all know about the struggles of the families who live with third world challenges on the plantations that grow beans.
So, in 2010 we launched the Coffee Culture Charitable Foundation with two distinct aims. The first was to support young people in our communities to achieve their full potential. The CCCF makes scholarship grants of $500 available to teenagers every year to help them in pursuit of their goals. To date, we have given out 53 scholarships and have supported many different activities including: swimming, BMX racing, freestyle waterskiing, theatre, music, leadership, cycling, and surfing. The young people we help are amazing and we expect to see them do great things in the future.
