15% PLEDGE

Since the beginning of ric rac, we have pledged to donate 15% of our revenue (meaning total $ in the door, not just profit) each month to a focus organization. So, for example, if our sales in a given month total $1,500, we will make a donation of $225 to our chosen organization for that month.

We don't have a precise structure for choosing which organizations to focus on, but we like to support organizations that advance racial justice, support unhoused folks, promote LGBTQIA+ rights, or champion Native communities. If you have an organization that you would like to nominate, please email us!

 For transparency, we have shared giving information below. If you would like to see a copy of donation receipts, we are happy to provide those as well!
