Due to the financial mortgage burden for Heritage Hall — the stone church built in 1880 by formerly enslaved Black individuals — the Guelph Black Heritage Society is unable to focus funding on social justice initiatives, cultural education programs, and supporting BIPOC members of our community.
The ‘Give A Cup’ campaign is reaching out to the Guelph community for support. Your purchase of Lantern Brew coffee will raise money for the Guelph Black Heritage Society and help to liberate them from financial constraint.
50% of proceeds from every purchase will be donated to the Guelph Black Heritage Society.
