Global Cafe and Mission Grants

Enjoy the Café and bless missions. 

From americanos to frozen explosions and everything in between, The Global Café offers a variety of specialty drinks that rivals anything you can get at a coffee shop. 

The difference? One hundred percent of profits go toward missions. 

Since 2007, The Global Café has supported mission partners, community service ministries, and individuals and families in Ankeny and beyond. Locally, the cafe funds ministries like Hope Ministries and Freedom for Youth, and more in locations throughout the U.S. and across the globe.  The best part: With your financial support, the ministry and service project list keeps growing. In fact, last year, The Global Café raised $8,000 for mission assistance from Sunday morning sales and special drive-through coffee events. Won’t you join us in changing our community and the world one custom coffee and smoothie at a time?
