Community Harvest

For the entire month of September, dining at any 1905 Family Of Restaurants location means more than just a meal.

For our guests, the process is simple: Choose a charity from a ballot that’s provided with the check. The restaurant calculates the 5 percent and provides the charity with gift certificates that can be used at any of the restaurants for up to 12 months. There’s no additional cost to the guest.

Apply For the 27th Annual Community Harvest Program By April 15, 2024

In the 26 years of our Community Harvest, the Gonzmart family has donated nearly $4 million in gift certificates to more than 100 non-profit organizations across Florida. 


Please consider this a gentle reminder to apply for the 2024 Community Harvest by April 15, 2024.


  • No matter how many years you have participated of if you’re a new applicant, to be considered all charities must apply each year by the deadline.


  • Charities that did not actively promote Community Harvest in previous years could be dropped from the program.


By June or so, we’ll announce which charities have been accepted for our 27th anniversary year. As always, the program will run for the entire month of September.  We’ll donate 5 percent of all revenue (at no charge to our guests) to the charities selected by our customers. 


Certificates (accepted at the Columbia, Cha Cha Coconuts, Ulele, Goody Goody and Casa Santo Stefano locations) typically are mailed in late November or early December and are good for one year.


Please note: The requesting organization must be in the same city, or an adjacent city, to a Columbia Restaurant location.


To apply:

  • Provide proof that your organization has 501(c)(3) status.

  • Provide a short (15 words or less) description of your organization’s goals.

  • Provide a headquarters address as well as the county or counties you serve.

  • Provide a contact name, phone number, email address and current mailing address.

  • Provide a list of your board of directors, and the companies they represent.
