Fundraise for your organization while earning free coffee for teachers. Surprisingly, most educators are expected to purchase their own coffee at work. By signing up for our fundraising program, you'll receive free coffee to help stock your teacher's lounge (or gift to the deserving educator of your choice).



Selling Higher Grounds coffee is an easy way for any organization to generate funds:

  • For field trips, arts, music, or sports programs, community development projects, and more.
  • For every 12oz bag or gift card sold (at wholesale cost), $5 is donated to your school or group.
  • With door-to-door and online sales options, families and friends both near and far can participate.
  • A wide selection of both coffee (light, medium, dark roast, decaf and espresso) and non coffee items (mugs, gift certificates, and more) means there is something for every customer.
  • Forms, brochures, and social media graphics are included to make sharing and selling easy.
  • We can help you create an incentive/prize program. 
  • On-site presentation and tasting is available to introduce the program to your organization and members.

A fundraising choice that promotes people and planet—not just profit.

QUALITY We are a 2017 Good Food Award winner and all of our coffees are small-batch, roast-to-order.

ORGANIC Our coffees are 100% organic and use traditional, sustainable farming methods.

SUSTAINABLE As a certified B Corp, we recycle, reuse, and compost, deliver by bike, and use only ceramic mugs in our coffee bar—saving tons of paper waste. 

COMMUNITY We care about every person our supply chain touches. We support coffee farming communities across the globe through development projects such as building water systems, supporting gender equality workshops, and more.

"Thank you for all your hard work to make our fundraiser a success! We love working with a local company, your coffee was easy for our students to sell, and parents were happy with the convenience of transporting and storing the bags of coffee. We will be doing another Higher Grounds Coffee fundraiser again for sure! "
