The Empty Cup

The Empty Cup is a new kind of coffeehouse that will be a gathering space with excellent coffee, local food, a market place, and live music. But it goes beyond that. The goal is to rethink how adoption fundraising is done. The Empty Cup will become a sustainable source for adoption fundraising. As people pour into The Empty Cup, they will pour back out to local families in the form of adoption grants.

There are millions of children literally waiting to be adopted, and the number one reason why families don’t pursue adoption is money. That’s why we created The Empty Cup.

It's a space where our community can come together and give what they have to offer a tangible way to support adoption. Churches are pouring in, local businesses are pouring in, families, artists, and professionals are all pouring in—all to benefit adoption. Every single one of us has something to offer.



As the community pours into The Empty Cup by purchasing coffee, visiting the marketplace, or donating time, the coffeehouse will pour its net profit back out in the form of adoption grants. That’s why the cup stays empty.
