20 Mar A successful fundraising week in benefit of Seeds for Progress Foundation
Macquarie Group, one of the main financial institutions working with Mercon Group, organized a week of activities beginning February 12th to raise funds in benefit of Seeds for Progress Foundation to continue their work to improve education in coffee growing communities.
The events included a ticketed reception at Macquarie offices in New York City, students’ sponsorships, and the sale of coffee, donated by Mercon Group. We are pleased to announce that more than US$100,000 were raised and that the amount was matched by Macquarie Group to reach a total of US$ 200,000!
These donations will be used to rehabilitate the electrical and sanitary systems of the San Martin School at Nueva Segovia, Nicaragua which will reach more than 115 children. Thanks to these alliances we are able to exceed our goals, all in benefit of our coffee communities. We thank Macquarie Group and everyone who donated and participated in this special week.
