Coffee for a Cure 2017

Our 12th annual breast cancer fundraising event, Coffee for a Cure, will be held on Friday, October 20th.  All proceeds on this day from all of our 69 locations in 11 states will be donated to local breast cancer agencies.  This has become a hugely successful and effective event for us and we are so happy that we are able to help make a difference in the fight against breast cancer!

Coffee for a Cure – The Impact

In Oregon alone, between Providence Foundation and Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center we have helped fund approximately 1600 mammograms or about 145 per year.  This is along with follow-up care and ongoing patient support.

Last year was our 11th annual Coffee for a Cure event and we raised $202,448.89 for a total of $1,055,044.89 to date!

Coffee for a Cure – The Story

When hurricane Katrina hit we had a donation day to help support the Red Cross. The following year we decided we wanted to make our donation day an annual event.  We wanted to help each of our own communities by doing so. Therefore each location donates to their local community. After talking to people we found out Oregon and Washington had the highest rates of breast cancer in the country (at the time). Everyone we knew had someone in their lives that had been affected by breast cancer. So we thought it was a cause that really could help people in our communities.

We work directly with local foundations.  They allocate the funds to help the patients that need help the most; uninsured or under-insured. Since starting Coffee for a Cure 12 years ago we have lost a barista, a franchise owner, family and friends. We are happy to say that since starting the donation day how our funds are used is beginning to change. More people are insured, getting early detection and surviving the disease. We now support patients with expenses while going through treatment.  We also help with a lot more preventive scans for early detection and education.

Truly it is the core of what The Human Bean is about, giving back and supporting our own communities.

Coffee for A Cure 2015 – 9 Years Strong!

Our 9th annual Coffee for A Cure 2015 donation day is this Friday, October 24th and we are both ready and excited to celebrate with you. Proceeds from Coffee for A Cure’s one-day beverage and pastry sales will be donated to local hospitals.  This money will provide uninsured and under-insured women in our communities with low income mammograms, treatment and follow-up care.

This year marks the ninth annual Coffee for A Cure donation day.  Over the years it has become much more than a fundraiser for us. It has additionally become a part of our brand’s identity. Coffee for A Cure is about giving back and also being a supporter of the communities we serve. Thanks to your support, Coffee for A Cure has raised over $548,000 to date.

From guest baristas to scavenger hunts, Coffee for A Cure has grown from a single donation day, to exciting festivities all October long. We’re always looking for ways to improve and expand Coffee for A Cure. This year, we introduced Lip Balms for A Cure that will raise an additional $2,500 toward our cause.
