Whole Planet Foundation Month
Saturday, March 1st
12:00 AM - 12:00 AM
Storewide

Whole Planet Foundation is a nonprofit organization established by Whole Foods Market that funds microloans in the countries and communities that supply products to our stores, including the US. By providing these microloans, impoverished individuals, mostly women, are able to start or expand small businesses and generate income to lift themselves and their family out of poverty. Through donations from customers like you and from our own Team Members, Whole Planet Foundation has supported over a million people in almost 60 countries and $42 million has been committed. Even a little goes a very long way and 100% of your donation goes directly to the microloan program.

To help invest in a future without poverty, donate at any of our registers or click here to donate online.
