We believe that the most important role our stores play in our communities occurs through the sense of place they provide; our stores are friendly, inclusive, and interesting places for people to gather. Great connections occur over gelato and coffee. People share, talk, and learn at our stores, and we hope build a sense of pride for a business made the Maine way.

Gelato Fiasco also supports important community organizations with direct financial support through our Scooping for Community Program. We partner with non-profits and donate 100% of sales from a non-profit’s supporters on the organization’s designated Scooping for Community Day.

In the past five seasons, we partnered with more than 50 organizations and donated more than $65,000 back to the greater Brunswick and Portland communities.

Non-profits seeking consideration for the 2017-2018 season should visit our Request a Donation page. (The season aligns with the academic year.) We give priority to schools and organizations supporting Maine kids.
