Summer Camp Fundraising Opportunity

Need help with your/ your student’s summer camp trip? You’ve come to the right place! This year we are partnering with 41&change Coffee Co. to assist those who are looking for ways to chip away at the cost of camp. 

It is pretty simple. You direct friends, families, neighbors, etc. to buy coffee from 41&change with this link (http://www.41change.com/young-life/libertyville-vernon-hills​) and you get a portion of each sale. This will be sent to the Young Life office to go towards your summer camp cost. All you need to do is make sure they fill out your/ or your student’s name in the designation field. 

Please email us if you have any questions or would like to get started- libertyville.vernonhills.yl@gmail.com

Selling Breakdown Examples

Sell coffee one time. If you end up selling 100 bags:

  • 100 bags X $4 give-back= $400

Get people to sign up for a monthly subscription. If you recruit 25 people to purchase 2 bags/mo:

  • 25 people X 2 bags/mo X $4 give-back = $200/mo
  • $200/mo X 12 months = $2,400/yr
  • $2,400 x 5 years = $12,000

If your customers were to sign up for a monthly subscription this money would go towards your current and future summer camp trips. Once you have graduated from Young Life, Capernaum, or Wyldlife this reoccuring money would be used to scholarship other campers.

Cost Breakdown

So, what are our costs? glad you asked. You have a right to know. We're commited to transparency and accountability. Per coffee bag, here's what we spend:

$1.85 Labor, fertilizer, etc.
$0.35 Mill cost
$0.20 Shipping cost
$2.64 Roaster labor
$0.50 Packaging cost
$0.40 Marketing
$5.94 Cost per pound

Paying a dignified wage to coffee workers in Nicaragua (25% more than the national minimum wage). Literally every penny of profit from our coffee goes to sending kids to camp to have the best week of their lives, many right here in Nicaragua, where our coffee is grown, and some in North America if you choose to support a local Young Life area as well.
