WHAT AHG TROOPS ARE SAYING ABOUT GIVING BEAN…
“We’ve been using GB for 2 years now, and it’s by far been the best fundraiser experience I’ve had in a long time. Excellent customer service and great product selection. And no joke – the coffee is great! I’ve been a member of the coffee club for over a year now. Thanks GB for offering another practical (and delicious) alternative to candy bars, candles, and coupon books!”- Sarah, AHG Troop MN0423
“This was the most customer focused fundraiser I have ever dealt with. You were fantastic to work with!”- Robin, AHG Troop VA1027
“Great coffee…and so much better than selling the same old popcorn, candy, and wrapping paper… people love coffee and tea..I put a bag on my conference table with an order sheet and got 10 orders!”- AHG Scout Leader, MN
“You have been a great help and so prompt and easy to get a hold of. We have really appreciated all you have done for us, including behind the scenes!”- Sue, AHG Troop FL3125

With Giving Bean’s coffee fundraising program, your Troop will earn 40% profit from the order-form fundraiser and 25% profit of anything sold online. Every sale is tracked, attributed, and reported by each member for both order-form and online sales. Online fundraising helps you reach any friends and family that don’t live in your area but would still like to support your Troop. There are no startup costs, easy step-by-step instructions, fast shipping, online support, and phone support.
In addition, we offer a ‘show and sell’ option. This is an order of (usually 50+) items that you sell on-hand of a few of Giving Bean’s most popular coffees and teas. “Show and Sells” are a great way to spark interest in the products and your fundraiser. This is normally done at a church or other event during or around the time of your order-form fundraiser. Speak with one of our fundraising support person to get suggestions on products and methods.
FREE CUSTOMIZED LABELS
Your AHG Troop’s Name and Logo!
For traditional order-form fundraisers, our coffee bags and k-kup boxes feature your Troop’s name and logo on the label free of charge!
GIVING BEAN PROFIT ESTIMATOR
Our profit estimator gives you a rough idea of how many items you would sell to reach your goal with our traditional order-form fundraiser. For illustration purposes, this assumes all products sold are coffee and tea.
Giving Bean works with many AHG Troops nationwide for all of their coffee fundraising needs! Some Troops have even earned the top spots as Giving Bean best sellers. Highly motivated and focused groups do very well. We offer gold, silver, and bronze iron-on patches as incentives to participate and achieve. One of the best strategies for a successful fundraiser is to request/assign a number of items each girl should sell. Using the patches as incentives for participation and as awards for better than minimum sales will help reach or even exceed your goal Troop fundraising goals. We have gold, silver and bronze bean patches as incentives available in our webstore!
Environmentally Friendly - All Natural Commitment
Clean Emissions, Compost & Responsible Packaging
REDUCE, RECYCLE, RE-USE:
Our roasting process uses a low-energy custom made “smokeless after-burner” that helps reduce our carbon footprint and environmental impact in a number of ways.
We recycle all materials eligible, and compost all chaff which is a by product of roasted coffee beans (great for vegetable and flower gardens). We are one of only a few coffee roasters packaging their whole beans in PLA-lined (corn-based) recycled craft paper bags that are fully compostable.
We employ clean, re-used filler, bubble-wrap and other packing materials. We also offer several reusable products for sale (k-kup filters and T-infusers) that help reduce trash volume for our coffee and tea-loving customers.
