Give Back to the Source Foundation
New for 2022!

GIVE BACK TO THE SOURCE
FOUNDATION

The cacao found in Guatemala is an incredible medicine that has been nourished for thousands of years by the Mayans and its land itself. When enjoying and being nourished by it, we want to ensure that we give back to the source. To bring abundance, health and respect to the Mayan lands.

With Cacao Source, a percentage of our revenue is redirected to the Give Back to the Source funds and we invite you to contribute as well. Together, we can honour the source of where the cacao we all much enjoy comes from.

We are currently in the process of the legalisation of the NGO. If you feel inspired to contribute to the process and future funds, every donation are welcome!

Transparency

As Cacao Source operates as a social business and this business may already support our team’s work, we are happy to share that 100% of the funds go to the local community or the environment including 10% going in the salary of leading Guatemalan women which will be over-seeing the well-being of the NGO and the people it affects.

Every year we will create a transparent report of the funds journey inside Give Back to the Source foundation with our main goal for the next year. We will as well measure the impact of the donations. This report will be accessible to all and shared with the local community so we may all be informed.

The foundation is one of the pathways for Cacao Source to honour the medicine of cacao and its source. As we are in service to cacao, we always welcome new ideas to the development of the funds in order to respect optimally the culture, history and Mayan lands.
