Jeff and Natalie Meyer opened Perk Place cafe three years ago in Oklahoma City with a simple business model: giving back. Since then, the coffee shop has expanded to two more locations in Oklahoma. Each of Perk Place’s locations donates 25 cents of every transaction to their desired charities.
Along with their primary cause, Perk Place highlights a different nonprofit every month. The coffee is free from 7 to 8 AM, encouraging patrons to donate to the “generosity jar” in honor of the chosen charity. Perk Place has partnered with Community Health Charities to spotlight a variety of our charity partners; collecting an average of $400 per month for our charity partners. Thus far, Sharing Tree/Christmas Connection, Children’s Hospital Foundation, Limbs for Life, American Cancer Society, Muscular Dystrophy Association, Alzheimer’s Association, American Heart Association, and the Epilepsy Foundation of Oklahoma have been highlighted. Our partnership has helped multiple local and national charity partners raise health awareness and resources.
In the words of Perk Place, “generosity rules.”
