Year-end Giving Supports Producers

Dear friend of CQI,

Thank you for being a Coffee Quality Institute supporter! As we close out this challenging year, I’m reaching out to you because CQI has big goals and ambitions for 2021 and we would love for you to join us. Together we can put coffee farmers front and center with key educational programs and stronger market connections – all so coffee producing communities can thrive.

Donate here

Coffee Quality Institute is a nonprofit organization, with a mission directly linked to producers: to improve the quality of coffee and the lives of those who produce it. Your end-of-year donation to the CQI Origin Fund is critical to realizing consequential education programs in coffee producing communities. Our education programs lay the foundation for improved coffee quality, broader access to markets, and a common language across the global coffee community. Specialty and fine coffee producers depend on getting the best price possible for their coffee to increase income and improve living standards, allowing families to cover basic costs like medical care and schooling for children.

I hope you will consider supporting CQI financially today at any level you can. Donations are needed to continue these important services, and yours will ensure access to important education and training in coffee producing regions. For as little as $100 you can make a difference that will change lives.

Examples of how donations may be used:

  • $100 will help deliver an online processing course
  • $500 can provide professional processing education
  • $1000 will help develop and deliver important coffee sensory training

At CQI we truly value our partners and have a long track record of collaboration. Your donation ensures that together we will continue to reach the communities that need our help the most. As you evaluate your end-of-year giving please consider standing with producers through Coffee Quality Institute.
