ABOUT US

KNUTH FAMILY FOUNDATION


“Bloom where you’re planted”

What is already an amazing organization started with a tiny seedling of an idea. We had a desire to give back, and do something big for the communities in which we live and work. And that was it. We didn’t know what it would be or how it would work. We just knew we wanted to help.

When Ashley got her yoga certification we approached Brewery Becker about starting a class to raise money for a local scholarship. The Brewery thought it was worth a try. Our first class had 6 people in it and was mostly just friends supporting Ashley’s new yoga venture. But as the class grew in size and popularity, the scholarship fund started to grow. We rallied (see: nicely harassed) some community members to be on our scholarship selection committee, and the first year we awarded $4500 in scholarships. We continue to run Bend & Brew, hold some other fundraisers throughout the year, and have been blessed with a few exceptional donors who love what we are doing.

In 2017 we awarded $10,000 in scholarships. That was the catalyst to creating the Knuth Family Foundation and to starting jumping through the hoops to get our 501(C)(3). As the story goes, the rest is history.

And finally, Chuck and I want to thank Lake Trust Credit Union for being our 2018 Annual Corporate Sponsor. We are so grateful for the support we continue to receive!

Do you love Toms Shoes and Love Your Melon hats? We love companies that give when you buy! We do this with Bend & brew and it's been on our radar for a while to create a tangible product with the same approach. That being said, we bring to your our latest and greatest idea!

We have teamed up with Good Sense Coffee to create a proprietary blend of coffee. We plan to offer it in a Limited Release with $5 from each sale going to the foundation. Our goal is to raise $5,000 (1,000 bags of coffee). Fortunately, most of us drink coffee everyday!

Our mission as a foundation is to empower our youth. So, not only are we creating a proprietary blend of coffee, we have enlisted the help of some local kids! Mrs. Hasseld's Social Media Marketing class at Hartland High School has taken on the project to create a name for the blend and design the label. (This is where you come in!) Our Specialty Coffee Roaster, Ian Boyle, has created 3 blends for us. We need you to help us select one! Ian will be joining us on Tuesday evening on the 2nd floor of Brewery Becker from 5:30-6ish (we may start class a few minutes late!) for you to try and vote on a blend for this project. We hope you're as excited as we are about this! #supportnonprofits #knuthfamilyfoundation #brewerybeckeryoga #goodsensecoffee #drinkmoregivemore #limitedrelease #cominginfebruary #cometastetheblends #takepart #ittakesavillage @goodsensecoffee
