Profits from new Lincoln coffee bar goes to support non-profits

LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - A new coffee bar in Downtown Lincoln will donate the cost of each cup of Joe to local non-profits and causes. The Foundry started in 2015 as a co-working space for those wanting to do good in the community.

People can meet with committees, study, or meet with donors at the bar. They can also go to the two upper floors where there are private offices and work spaces.

"We're trying to create a safe space for those non-profits to be able to grow and to work on their missions and it's just a different way of doing work. And I think that's super important for our community to recognize that," said Randy Hawthorne, the Executive Director of Foundry.

Along with coffee, the bar serves wine and beer. The 200 non-profits, social impact companies, and student groups are connected to the non-profit hub.
