The Create Good Foundation
The Create Good Foundation (CGF) is a 501(c)(3) public charity formed by Pura Vida Create Good in 1998. It is funded by Pura Vida Coffee, its ownership group, and public donations; missioned to use its resources to fund programs that help children in at-risk communities and to partner with churches and other nonprofits to help fund projects that help those in need.
Pictured at left is Jeff Hussey, our Chairman, checking progress at a new coffee production facility in Guatemala funded by CGF. Jeff is a successful high-tech entrepreneur (co-founded F5 Networks and Tempered Networks) who focuses significant time and resources on helping CGF identify and fund projects synergistic with our mission. Nonprofit organizations we currently support include: Sister Schools, FundaVida, and Ecofiltro.
In addition, often in partnership with customers, we help fund projects that have significance to them within the context of their global or local outreach programs.
