Community Giving and Partnerships

 

Whole Foods Market is a company with a conscience.  We believe passionately in supporting the Memphis community and are actively involved by:

 

Donating goods and services to local organizations
Sponsoring community events
Educating adults and children with interactive tours of the store
Hosting adult and child cooking classes

 

5% COMMUNITY SUPPORT DAYS

Our Community Support (5%) Days are one 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 501c3 non-profit organizations. Customers help support our selected organizations just by shopping on these 5% Days. Please use this application to apply. 

 

 

COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS 

We are excited to be able to help the Memphis community with a variety of partnership opportunities throughout the year, including:

 

Event Assistance (single event or a series of events)
Donations (usually product donation for charity purposes)
Project Support (community gardens, mural production, etc)

 

 

If you would like to apply for a partnership or in-kind donation, please use this application to apply.

 

All requests are reviewed on a monthly basis and recipients will be notified as soon as possible. Please be advised that due to the large volume of requests that we receive, we require a minimum of 8 weeks advanced notice for any donation. Unfortunately, we can not honor every request and will only contact you if we can provide a donation for your organization. If you have any questions regarding our community, please contact emily.lux@wholefoods.com
