Supporting Our Community

Kakao Chocolate is proud to support a variety of local, regional and national not-for-profit organizations. Since 2009 we contributed to more than 300 charitable groups.

Rather than in-kind donations of chocolate, we donate Chocolate Tasting Party Certificates that can be used as silent auction items to help raise money for the organization. The Party allows up to ten people to gather at our Maplewood shop and be treated to a brief history of chocolate and an explanation of how chocolate is made and why it’s so good for you. We then provide guests with a selection of confections made from all-natural ingredients right there in our shop, and the share the stories behind how we created each of them. (Kakao Chocolate Tasting Parties are also available for purchase.) 

Kakao receives dozens of requests for charitable donations each month, and unfortunately we cannot contribute – or even respond – to all of them. To be considered, we ask that you provide us with the following information:
  • An official letter requesting the donation and describing in detail the event at which the donation will be used.
  • The State of Missouri Tax ID number for the non-profit organization.
In order for us to evaluate your request, please provide us with the information at least four weeks before you need to receive the certificate. You can drop your request off at either of our shops, or mail or email the information to:

     Kakao Chocolate
     7272 Manchester Road
     Maplewood, MO 63143

Because of the large number of requests we get, we ask that you provide us with your request in writing – no phone calls, please. Thank you.
