Our Policy

Kool Beans Coffee & Roasterie is engaged and excited about giving back to the community that we are a part of! We respect and greatly appreciate the people and organizations who have encouraged us and collaborated with us along the way as our business has grown. As such, we make sure we give back and provide support and encouragement to others in our community.

Brookings is a wonderful community made up of kind and giving people that support a variety of worthy organizations and causes. In turn, we support community organizations through volunteering our time as well as monetary and product gifts as often as we are able.

Here are a few of the organizations and events we have supported in the last few months:

Boys and Girls Club, Cross Fit/Arcfit flood relief, SDSU Scholarship Auction, South Dakota Public Broadcasting, Lutheran Social Services, Brookings County Youth Mentoring, Brookings High School Post Prom, Prison Congregations of America and the Carmen Pampa Fund, and the Brookings Marathon.

Due to the significant number of requests we receive, we do need to provide some structure and guidelines to help make our decisions. We ask that you submit your request at least 30 days prior to the event.

In order focus the impact of our contribution, we offer these main donation criteria. We primarily provide support to organizations that concentrate on the following:

  • Supporting children and/or families in need
  • Supporting schools and education
  • Promoting healthy lifestyles

If your organization or event fits within these guidelines, please fill out and submit this donation application that follows. We will review requests at the end of the month and let you know if you have been chosen for a donation.

Thank you!
