Buck for Kids is Dutch Bros’ Celebration of National Coffee Day

October 3, 2017

On Friday, Sept. 29, Dutch Bros Coffee will celebrate National Coffee Day by donating $1 from every drink sold to local youth organizations for the company’s annual Buck for Kids day.

Dutch Bros wants to disrupt the coffee industry's approach to this national day and shift the focus to coffee lovers' support for youth in our communities. On Friday, all 292 Dutch Bros locations throughout the seven states in which the company operates will donate $1 from every drink sold to support local youth organizations. Every Dutch Bros location is locally operated, enabling each local team to select a nonprofit that betters the lives of local youth in their community. 

“National Coffee Day allows us to showcase what we do best - putting people first,” said Travis Boersma, Co-founder Dutch Bros Coffee. “We love coffee but there is nothing more important than our kids. We are stoked to support our local communities and outstanding youth programs.”

Dutch Bros celebrates National Coffee Day by positively impacting the communities Dutch Bros employees are grateful to call home. Through Buck for Kids, Dutch Bros partners with local youth organizations doing great work. Proceeds from this day further support nonprofits as they continue to positively mentor, support and, ultimately better the lives of youth throughout the area.

To date, Dutch Bros’ Buck for Kids has raised over $1.28 million for local youth organizations with gifts totaling $401,212 last year alone. By partnering with local coffee lovers, Dutch Bros hopes to surpass that total this year. The company’s philosophy is that our youth are the future. Together we can make strides to positively impact their lives and create a better world.
