Theo Impact Report

community involvement

Theo supports the creation of thriving and resilient communities. There are three ways we have traditionally been

involved in supporting the communities where we do business.

CASH DONATIONS

Since 2005, Theo and our customers have donated $92,000 to at least 29 organizations through the

proceeds of selling various partnership bars.

PRODUCT DONATIONS

Over the years, Theo has donated products to non-profits and Food Lifeline for redistribution to food banks and meal

programs throughout Western Washington.

In 2019:

38,000 lbs

of chocolate donated to Food Lifeline

EMPLOYEE VOLUNTEERING

Theo encourages employees to actively contribute to the community by

providing paid time off for volunteering, what we call Theo Match.

For every two hours an employee volunteers, outside of work, for a

charitable organization, Theo pays a bonus equivalent to one hour of the

employee’s regular pay, up to twelve bonus hours each calendar year.

$8,500

of finished goods donated to non-profits

In 2020, our goal is to develop a community involvement strategy to

ensure we are strong partners in the communities where we do

business, both Seattle and Cocoa Origins. 2018

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

Thank you to the many people who make Theo the unique, mission-driven company it is:

Theo employees (past and present) whose day-to-day passion and hard work brought these results to life.

• ESCO Kivu and the cocoa farmers in Watalinga, Eastern Congo who partner to produce ethically and sustainably

grown, delicious cocoa in an environment of on-going instability.

Theo customers who join us hand-in-hand to create positive change through chocolate.

The focus of this report is on the most material areas of impact, so not all of Theo’s business practices are covered.

We welcome any feedback you have - please send your questions or comments to Info@TheoChocolate.com

We look forward to continuing the conversation with you.
