The granola itself is delicious. The Greater Good makes it taste even better: We donate all profits from each sale to Seattle community organizations. Every time you buy our granola, you can feel good knowing that every cent over the full cost of making this granola will go to support our community.
After 3 years in business we have been able to donate over $30,000 to the community via main two partners, Family Works and CityFruit. We have also donated to many other important causes. 2017 has been big (and our agenda has been set by our awful president). You amazing people bought a lot of granola and raised $2,000 in a hurry in Feb to give to the ACLU and the IRC. Well done!! For April and May 2017, we raised $1000 for Planned Parenthood and in September we raised $1,000 for United We Dream- to protect the dreamers/DACA.
For the 2017 fall, 100% of our profits will to go to Moms Demand Action. We hope to make enough noise with your granola purchase money (because apparently senseless deaths aren't enough) to demand action from legislators for gun reforms.
How do we choose the charities? We like to keep the cause as close to the product as possible. We also find that we are increasingly setting our giving agenda based on what our current administration continues to say and do- usually the antithesis of our values and ethics. In addition, hunger continues to plague our community, and we plan to channel a large chunk of our profits toward fighting it and any and all causes with hunger/food safety adjacencies.
