Charity Policy and Programs

Vanille not only prides itself on incredible product quality and great customer service, we also make a firm commitment in supporting community organizations. To ensure our involvement is consistent and fair, we have developed two methods for your participation.

Events Hosted by Organization

Vanille will only participate charity events where the format includes interactive chef stations. Vanille will provide pastries and Team members to facilitate the tasting process. We only have a limited number of events we can do each year, and the award is on a first come first service basis. Please get your requests in early!

Vanille Gives Back Programs

In case your event does not include interactive chef stations, you are welcome to apply for one of Vanille Gives Back programs:

Charity night

A nonprofit organization can apply for a charity night Monday-Thursday at their choice of a Vanille location, for Vanille to market event and donate 15% of sales on that given night to the specific charity. Each Vanille location will host one charity night/location per month. Please provide:

The stud muffin will be sold at all Vanille locations for one month. Don’t worry the team of Vanille Chefs will help you come up with the perfect flavor combination for your Charity Stud.
