What does it mean to be a Beneficiary at Richwood Coffee?

When selecting a beneficiary, we are looking for partners to help us strengthen and support the communities we both serve.  When Richwood Coffee was created the vision was to connect community and purpose.  Richwood Bank’s 150+ years of success was built on dedication to our communities. When we all grow, we all win!  In May of 2023 we reached over $500,000 in donations since opening our first coffee shop in 2015.

Beneficiaries must be a nonprofit 501c3 organization.

Our coffee shops are located in our Richwood, Marysville, Delaware, Bellefontaine, Springfield, and Plain City branches.

How does the coffee shop process work… for the public?

We like to say, “You can BANK on getting a good cup of coffee”…even if you’re not a Richwood Bank customer. Anyone can donate to our nonprofit beneficiaries and receive thank you cups in return.  It’s as easy as 1…2…3

  1. A person visits one of our customer specialists at any of our coffee shop locations inside Richwood Bank and decides how much they’d like to donate to one of our community beneficiaries.
  2. In return, they receive “thank you” cups that match their donation dollars.
  3. They head over to the Richwood Coffee order window and choose a hot or cold drink of their choice.

How does the coffee shop process work…for our beneficiaries?

Your organization is listed as a donation spot in all coffee shop marketing, including our menu tv screens, brochures, website, and social media.  We also periodically name-drop nonprofit organizations in radio advertising, such as local Pandora, and iHeart Radio.  We will also provide you with a start up media kit to help you spread the word that you are a beneficiary.

As a beneficiary, we will work together to create a plan with you on our partnership and how we promote one another, as well as the designation of the funds you receive.

What happens to those proceeds?

100% of funds generated by donations to your specified organization will be transferred to your specified account. Your funds will be made available per terms of signed agreement.
