KOHA was created with the vision of strengthening communities through supporting local businesses. KOHA recognizes there is a symbiotic relationship between local businesses, the people they cater to, and the communities they exist in. KOHA provides an online fundraising app and platform that links businesses and their customers, by driving traffic to local businesses, with the ultimate goal of supporting community initiative and their fundraising efforts. 

Simply stated, KOHA helps tap into the generosity of local businesses and services when schools and nonprofits support them first. By dining at the newest local restaurants or breweries, buying your next outfit at a local boutique, getting a fresh detail on your car, or even indulging in a latte, the KOHA fundraising app lets you support your favorite school or nonprofit organization with everyday purchases at no additional cost to the customer.


KOHA is a Māori tradition that involves the act of giving with the purpose of return, similar to the phrase "give and take."  KOHA reflects the mana or honor of both the giver and the recipient.  It signifies what the giver is able to give, and the respect and admiration in which the giver holds of the recipient of the gift.



KOHA’s mission is to promote sustainability for local businesses and the communities they serve. We are committed to providing solutions that produce sustainable, long-term value for small business, local organizations, and the people they serve. 


Koha loves local.  Make the choice to shop small and see the ripple effect it creates. Small businesses generate revenue that often goes back into the local commnunity, creating jobs and in turn brings more businesses and organizations into the community, while all the time supporting local schools and nonproftis.  That is the essence of KOHA. Add value to your business and your community. Give back by getting involved locally and shop local!

To move forward, you have to give back - Oprah Winfrey


KOHA is committed to the community, where local businesses owners become Community Heroes to schools and nonprofits and where schools and nonprofits champion supporting local businesses.  THAT spells COMMITMENT.
