Help Launch the Do Good Donuts Pilot

Meet Alma – a sweet and fun-loving girl who loves to sing and dance and has a bright future ahead of her. But, most kids like Alma will grow up and never have the chance to work.

Youth with intellectual disabilities face an 85% unemployment rate vs. 15% percent of their peers. 

We'd like to change that.

Do Good Donuts has secured a spot at the Leslieville Farmers Market this summer! We'll be providing paid on-the-job training for three young people with intellectual and developmental disabilities for employment in the community. Our volunteers are hard at work designing our program and prepping the kitchen. But we need your help to make sure we're all set to bake a difference.

This pilot will allow us to test our training program in a working food service business, selling donuts, squares, cookies, coffee and more from our Do Good Tent. With the opportunity for pre-orders and contactless pickup or delivery, Do Good will reinvest into the program, so we can bake a difference for even more young people!

There are so many ways you can help get ready for the market – you can be the icing on the donut!
Uniforms $50/person
Market fees - $55/week
Truck rental $100/week
Commercial kitchen access twice a week $250/week
Salaries of the employees $350/week
PPE - $200
Market and Kitchen materials $2,000 one-time cost

You can help us get the non-profit donut shop that bakes futures off to a sweet start by donating
today. Our goal is to raise $10K to ensure that we are ready to help more young people beyond
this market pilot.
