The Toro Foundation
Tackling Obstacles, Reinventing Ourselves.
Previously, the Toro Foundation focused on working with non-profits as we got acquainted with becoming one. For 4 years we have donated every dollar that didn't go to overhead costs to our community via third party, verified and reputable charities.
We sell worldly goods, and are so much more than specialty coffee. That's proven with every single dollar goes back into our community in some form and nothing makes us feel better at Toro Organics than giving back.
Now as a small company with a large voice activist wise after 6 very vocal years, we are focused on micro-loans and the non-profit Feeding America. We are actively preparing to operate as a non-profit in 2021 and until then we will continue doing our outreach with nonprofits that better all of our lives.
Facts about poverty and hunger in America
Even in the world’s greatest food-producing nation, children and adults face poverty and hunger in every county across America.
- More than 38 million people are living in poverty in America. In 2019, most families living in poverty earn less than $25,750 per year.
- More than 37 million people struggle with hunger in the United States, including more than 11 million children.
- A household that is food insecure has limited or uncertain access to enough food to support a healthy life.
- Children are more likely to face food insecurity than any other group in the United States.
- More than half (56%) of food-insecure households participated in at least one of the major federal food assistance program — the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly Food Stamps); the National School Lunch Program and the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (often called WIC)

Our micro-grants will be determined on how much we are able to raise via pop-up fundraisers. We always want to set our standards high. We want to build our brand in a way that can help people substantially. However, because of the pandemic, Covid-19, there will not be any pop-up events held until 2021 when this crisis has been eradicated. We are reliant solely on funding via donations through this site and social media platforms.
Toro stands for:
We are so excited about this next chapter of micro-grants.
The money we raise from our fresh ta' death specialty coffee will go to the charities we choose based upon their mission, values and services. We have sourced phenomenal charities which we will rotate throughout our products. Detailed below you can find the non-profits we have already supported.
The more Toro grows, the more people we can contract out, the more equipment we can get, the more jobs we can create, and the m ore money we can donate. All donations are tax-deductible.
Toro Organics has always been about sharing our stories and giving back the best way we know how. We are here to walk the talk. No matter how many times we didn't think we had the drive to pick ourselves up again, we did and it's always what motivated us to brush ourselves off and be bold, live free, and never settle and help our peers out of their rut.
We are huge proponents of a Universal Basic Income. We believe money needs to go directly into the hands of the American people. We credit a great deal of this movement to MLK, Thomas Paine, 2020 presidential candidate Andrew Yang and others who have fought and argued that an individual knows what is best for their life. Meaning putting money in people's hands in the best way to move forward during the 4th industrial revolution.
