Flexible Participation Options
Our primary mission is to bring meaningful and educational employment to Special Needs Individuals. Our organization is non-profit, which means any and all donations and money coming in will be turned around and put back into the organization to continue helping the Special Needs community. Our donation program will be a huge factor in this mission. Your company’s donation can highly impact the lives of our employees and the community as a whole! Below you’ll find some examples of where the donations of your Donor Tier could impact our day to day operations.

Did you know that just one oven can cost anywhere between $5,000-$15,000? Ovens and other large equipment items are a huge staple for a bakery! We will have anywhere from 2-3 ovens in our building – not to mention freezers, coolers, etc. This tier could highly contribute to these costs as well as maintenance on our equipment as well!

RECURRING Monthly DONORS
This donation section is dedicated to our supporters who become recurring monthly donors. It is because of their generosity we are able to determine how many employees we can hire, how many cakes we can give away, and how much fundraising and profit the bakery needs to make yearly. We are so thankful to anyone who is able to become a monthly donor! Your name or company will be added and stay on our site for as long as you are able to give a minimum of only $1.00 per month. This is our way of saying thank you and recognizing those who support our mission!

Shaun Harrison is a local plumber located in Gainesville, GA who we called to help fix multiple plumbing issues including a leaking sink. Shaun was wonderful to work with and was very knowledgeable. Upon spending time at the bakery and learning about our mission, he generously offered his repair services for free. These repairs would have cost the bakery $1500. He completely took us by surprise and we truly can’t thank The Plumbing Shark enough!!!!
Trophy Case is a company located in Gainesville, GA that creates a variety of different trophies, plaques, acrylics, name badges, and more! This is the local company we went to when we were looking for our custom puzzle piece-shaped name tag as well as our labels for all of our many ice cream flavors. The staff has been nothing but a delight to work with and has donated a few items each order in a show of support of our mission!
Simply Elegant Photography is located in Gainesville, GA and they specialize in custom newborn, infant, toddler, and children’s portraits. They also take beautiful maternity, family, and fine art photos! The owner and operator, Whitney, graciously volunteered an hour of her time and skills to take wonderful images of our bakery, and our amazing employees! We are so grateful to Simply Elegant Photography for their kindness and generosity! Thank you for capturing such beautiful photos and being so wonderful to all the members of our team!
Each and every donation is equally important and more appreciated than you can imagine. The lives that will be impacted by the smallest of donations, even just buying a cookie, will help our organization continue to operate and grow. Thank you for considering contributing!
