Quarterly Programs *We are currently accepting applications for Donate Your Dime and 5% Day*
Donate Your Dime (formally Change for Change)
Did you know that Whole Foods Market gives 10 cents per bag to customers who re-use their own shopping bags for their purchased groceries? This program reduces our impact on the environment and now supports local non-profit groups. Customers have the choice to accept their cash refund, or donate the cash back to the store’s chosen non-profit organization or to the Whole Planet Foundation. One local non-profit is chosen each quarter to receive the Donate Your Dime option. To apply be a Donate Your Dime recipient, please complete and submit a Donate Your Dime Application.
Here are our remaining 2013 Donate Your Dime Recipients:
Our Community 5% Days are another meaningful way we give back to our community. On designated days throughout the year a total of 5% of the day’s net sales are donated to local non-profit organizations. Customers help support our selected organizations just by shopping on these 5% Days.
To apply to be a 5% Day recipient, please complete and submit a 5% Day Application. Also see our 5 Percent Day Guidelines.
Our third quarter 5% Day for American Diabetes Association took place on Friday, June 28, 2013. Over $4000 was raised thanks to our Customers' support! Keep an eye out for our next 5% Day.
