Of the 7 to 8 million people in the United States that have an I/DD, 28% of working age adults among them have never held a job. Since the founding of our cafe’ in November of 2019, we have provided employment to five individuals. Our volunteer job sampling program where individuals with disabilities from the community are integrated into an active volunteer position to gain work-based learning experience has reached its capacity and our wait list continues to grow.
To support this critically important work, we are pleased to announce the Mission to Match 2022 campaign! Every dollar you donate between April 1 and July 1 will be matched by an anonymous local donor. Your gift to Ethan & The Bean will go twice as far to provide more education, employment opportunities, and recreational programming for the population we serve. CLICK HERE IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HELP!
We make it easy for you to choose an increment once you click the donate button, but you may enter any amount you like!
Ethan & the Bean is a registered New Jersey 501(c)(3) non-profit. This means that your donation is eligible for a deduction when you file your taxes.
As far as we know, there is no rule stating that an employer with a matching gift program can’t approve a matched donation, even if it’s been matched by another person or company, so by all means please ask. And thank you kindly for the extra effort!
Yes! Please send a check made payable to Ethan & the Bean with “Donor Match” in the note line to Ethan and the Bean, 174 Forest Avenue, West Caldwell, NJ. 07006. Checks can also be dropped off at our storefront located at 98 Main Street in Little Falls, NJ 07424 during store hours, Monday-Saturday 9am-4pm and Sunday 10am-2pm.
If you require further information, please do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com.
