How we give back

Community

Sweet Flower stands in solidarity with the local Black and Brown communities who have been disproportionately impacted by the war on drugs.
 
 
We recognize the privilege in owning a cannabis dispensary and are working every day to fight for fair and equitable rights in the cannabis industry.
 
We work actively with Equity First Alliance https://www.equityfirstalliance.org/ whose mission is to repair the harms of the War on Drugs through racial equity and reparative justice. We engage with and support the mission of The Black Cooperative Investment Fund http://www.bcifund.org/a community-based 501(c)3 nonprofit fund, to create social change for the Black community through the primary strategy of building assets and wealth. The BCIF provides microloans through pooled dollars from individuals and companies who are passionate about economic empowerment for the African American community.
Our demonstrated investment in the Los Angeles and Ventura County communities we serve has resulted in over $135,000 in charitable donations since we were founded two years ago. We’ve provided this support to a diverse group of local organizations, important to us as a company and to the Los Angeles and Ventura County communities we operate in.
These organizations include:
L.A. GOAL https://www.lagoal.org/ providing opportunities for adults with developmental disabilities, increasing their independence and employability through educational, vocational and recreational programs.
Upward Bound House, https://upwardboundhouse.org/  helping to reduce the number of homeless families and children who are hungry and living on the streets of Los Angeles.
The  Black Cooperative Investment Fund http://www.bcifund.org/a community-based 501(c)3 nonprofit fund, with the mission to create social change for the Black community through the primary strategy of building assets and wealth. The BCIF provides microloans through pooled dollars from individuals and companies who are passionate about economic empowerment for the African American community.
We have also provided grants to support the Culver City School District’s music and performing arts programs. Our staff has engaged hands-on by volunteering in the communities we serve, participating in neighborhood clean up programs and beautification projects and serving those most
In response to the COVID-19 crisis, Sweet Flower immediately directed $5,000 of funds to Food Share to help ensure that Ventura County’s largest food resource for those in need could fulfill critical demand. Sweet Flower also secured and delivered over 500 mask and glove kits to front line workers at nonprofits Sweet Flower currently supports.
 
It is a privilege to serve these communities, and a responsibility we take seriously. Please contact us to learn more.
