Minneapolis-based Founding Fathers Products' mission is to create superior quality American-made products that support American military families with 50 percent of its profits. Founding Fathers introduced its line of domestic premium lager beers in 2011 and recently introduced a full line of 100 percent Arabica gourmet coffee.
The company announced a donation of $25,000 to Folds of Honor, Owasso, Okla., a nonprofit organization that provides educational scholarships to families of military men and women who have fallen or been disabled while on active duty in the U.S. armed forces.
"I founded the company to give back to those who have sacrificed so much to protect our freedom," said Phil Knutsen, chief executive officer of Founding Fathers Products, in a statement. "We are honored to support the extraordinary work of Major Dan Rooney and his team at Folds of Honor and contribute to their mission to provide scholarships to the families of the wounded and fallen soldiers."
Major Dan Rooney, founder of Folds of Honor, added: "It is through the generosity of companies like Founding Fathers that allows Folds of Honor the opportunity to serve the needs of those who have heroically served our great country. We are truly honored to stand shoulder to shoulder with this fine group of patriotic partners who share our commitment to support those who need it most. Together we can make a lasting difference.”
Founding Fathers Coffee is available at Amazon.com, BedBathAndBeyond.com, military exchanges and many retailers.
