Community Involvement

At Cypress Grove Chevre, we have grown from our humble beginnings in 1983, and so has our ability to give back to our community. By supporting local individuals, institutions, and non-profit organizations, we proudly play an active role in the community in which we work and live by contributing a percentage of our annual profits. All contributions are discretionary, but all requests are given consideration; however, in staying true to our roots and the beliefs of our Founder, our principle charitable focus is support for "Women," "Youth," and "Education" in Humboldt County.

In order to support a wide range of community requests, we generally limit contributions to one per year.

Donation requests generally come in the form of:

  • Cheese to serve at fundraising or other events
  • A gift certificate for cheese to be used as an auction item at fundraisers
  • Sponsorship of organizations or activities

To request a donation or sponsorship, please use our Donation Request Form.

In addition to requests, we make unsolicited discretionary monetary donations based on profitability.
