The Plum Deluxe Philanthropy & Fellowship Fund is the charitable/altruistic arm of Plum Deluxe. We divert a percentage of our annual profits (approx 1%) to support efforts in making our world a better place and helping create moments that matter for those less fortunate and less privileged.
We focus on specific projects and causes in our local community, in our customers’ communities, and in the international communities where our product ingredients are sourced. We also connect our community members with opportunities to get involved in these efforts – not only can you support us by buying our products, but sign up for our our weekly newsletter to stay updated on our positivity projects.
Currently, we only accept donation requests and project suggestions from our tea of the month club members. (If you’re a club member, check the member’s portal for submission info.)
Bookies non-profit that helps young children get excited about books, as well as classroom projects in both Elk Grove, CA and Church Rock, NM.
In 2015/16, we created a tea called The Joy Blend; portions of each sale going to The Joy Team, a non-profit dedicated to promoting positivity – and in Feb 2017 we also had a featured bilboard with our own message. We featured the Joy Team founder on our podcast.
Cocoa for Christmas
We love created moments that matter for others, and so it was an honor to be the lead donor to support Ms. Walker’s class in Mississippi in having a hot cocoa party for Christmas. Those logs might be fake, but those chocolatey smiles warmed our heart!
Sunday Tea Social
We were happy to provide the teas for the African-American Cultural Center’s 6th annual mother-daughter tea in Buffalo, NY. Monies from the fundraiser go to support local children’s programs. As we like to say, there’s always time for tea!
Letters for the Elderly
We partnered with Love for the Elderly to send people housebound in nursing homes valentine’s letters and cards – our entire community participated (over 3k letters sent!) and we also donated tea to the “Sunshine” surprise gift boxes.
Comments for a Cause
We partnered with tea club member Beth at ItsJustLife.Me to sponsor her Comments for a Cause in April 2017 with a donation to Free Little Library foundation. Yay, books!
