Mission Grounds Where Your Dollars Make A Difference!

Mission Grounds sales Mission Grounds Gourmet Coffee to help homeless children in Atlanta and orphans around the world.

Mission Grounds Gourmet Coffee is a non-profit corporation dedicated to making a significant difference in the lives of children here in Atlanta & around the globe. We?re accomplishing that goal by selling our GREAT-TASTING, gourmet coffee & donating 100% of the profits to carefully selected charitable projects such as group homes, shelters, orphanages & schools.

The Company
The company was started by Boake and Carol Moore, as an extension of their mission work in Costa Rica. He got the idea from another friend who brought back bags of the local coffee to sell through his church. They joined the Caf? CoopeTarrazu Farmer?s Co-Op which enabled them to make purchases from a local group of 2500 farmers. Then they began importing the coffee that is now sold as Mission Grounds.

There are no administrative overhead costs at Mission Grounds. We rely on a team of volunteers led by successful business executives such as Thomas Loach and Rick Sample. No one involved in the effort accepts a salary. Overhead is limited to shipping, packaging and labeling the coffee, and comprises less than 5% of receipts. Every penny of profit goes toward child-centered projects in the U.S. and countries around the world. We use personal contacts to transfer funds and ensure the entire amount reaches its intended destination.

The Coffee
Mission Grounds Coffee is made from the finest Arabica beans grown in the rich volcanic soil of the Tarrazu region of Costa Rica. Known for its intense aroma and depth of flavor, coffee from this region is fre?quently used to improve the flavor of big-name blends.

Tarrazu coffee is graded at five levels. The highest quality (#1) is also the least abundant, because it is grown at the highest altitudes and takes the longest to grow and ripen. Large coffee chains, which must purchase their beans in huge quantities, routinely pass over grades 1 and 2, even for their finest coffees.

Mission Grounds buys only the #1 grade beans. We offer two roasting options: Dark Roast, which is slow roasted for a smooth, rich taste, slightly spicy and full-bodied, and Mission Grounds Light Roast which offers a more delicate flavor that is crisp and bright.

The Opportunity
There are several ways you can show your support for the work of Mission Grounds:
BUY MISSION GROUNDS COFFEE. Whether you purchase one pound for your personal enjoyment, or several pounds a week to serve in your corporate break room, every donation helps our causes.

SELL MISSION GROUNDS COFFEE. If you have a restaurant or coffee shop, we?d love to be your house brew.

DONATE DIRECTLY TO A PROJECT. We?ll be happy to discuss the efforts we have underway and how your donations can make a difference. Our current projects are listed on the back panel of this brochure. Corporations can know 100% of their donations go to helping children and not to a salary or overhead. Donate where giving makes the biggest difference.

VOLUNTEER TO HELP HOMELESS CHILDREN: Please give me a call at (678) 480-1067, and let?s talk.

The Projects:
Mission Grounds is currently supporting projects in several areas:

Atlanta, Georgia: Sales from Mission Grounds Coffee support The Children?s Restoration Network (CRN) and Jars of Clay. These two organizations provide food, clothing, housing, education and job training for children in need in the Atlanta area. Jars of Clay works specifically with the inner-city poor, CRN works with shelters and group homes throughout Metro Atlanta.

China: Mission Grounds has recently completed a third school near Kunming in the Yunnan province. We have identified 12 more sites for future school construction. Our goal is to complete at least 2 or 3 schools per year.

Venezuela: Mission Grounds is constructing and supporting an orphanage housing 160 children that is under construction in the town of Barquisimeto. It is scheduled for completion in the summer of 2008. At least one other site has been identified for a similar facility.

Russia: Mission Grounds supports several orphanages in St. Petersburg, including an HIV home, through an organization called Relational Bridges International.

Other Projects: Mission Grounds partnered with Family Circle magazine to help families displaced by Hurricane Katrina. We also sponsored Back to School festivals to distribute backpacks and school supplies to children in Buffalo, NY and New Orleans, LA. We currently are exploring similar opportunities with children?s charities in Pittsburgh, PA, Charlotte, NC and other U.S. cities

Dear Friend,
I know how often business owners are asked for donations, but give me the opportunity to explain how this cause is unique. My wife and I have supported numerous causes over the years, and the one thing we demand is to know that the money and effort contributed is directly benefiting the project being supported.
That is one thing I can guarantee when you make a corporate donation to Mission Grounds. Mission Grounds is a small, value-oriented, family-based group of volunteers committed to making a difference. I?ll tell you about projects currently underway, and you can select the one that means the most to you. In addition, I?ll show you how your money will be used. As little as $100 a month can provide food and diapers for an orphanage. $1,000 could provide new appliances or playground equipment for a group home. $10,000 can build a school in China or an orphanage in South America. Whatever you decide, you can be sure that the project you choose is where your money will go. You will also receive periodic updates so you can see your donation at work.

All of our charities are child-centered. In my travels around the world, I have seen so many children orphaned or simply aban?doned, left to fend for themselves. Rather than dwell on their heartbreaking stories, I decided to try to influence a change in the future of children like them. You can help.

I?d like you to consider making a donation to Mission Grounds. Give me a call at 678-480-1067, and let?s talk. I know where we can get an excellent cup of coffee.

Sincerely,

Boake Moore
Mission Grounds Gourmet Coffee
