Please read the descriptions of the programs that we offer carefully, including necessary timelines, to ensure that we can process your request. All forms can be submitted to


General Donations:

Greenlife Grocery is happy to provide donations to many nonprofit groups in our immediate area through non-monetary donations (gift cards, cases of water or produce, baked goods, etc.). This is great for non-profit organizations that need items for fundraising or are having a fundraising event. If your non-profit organization needs a non-monetary donation, please fill out the sponsorship/donation application and email to or drop off at Greenlife Guest Services at 70 Merrimon Ave, Asheville, NC. All requests must be accompanied with your Federal 501-(c) 3 letter.  We require a minimum of four weeks’ notice for donation requests.


Donate Your Dime:

Did you know that Greenlife Grocery 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 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. If you would like to be considered as a recipient for this program, please submit the Bag Donation Application and either email to, or drop off at Greenlife Guest Services.


Community 5% Days:

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. Selected organizations get to share their cause with the public by maintaining a booth with a representative from the organization throughout the entire day. This is a great way for an organization to increase funds and gain exposure. If your non-profit organization is interested in applying for a 5% Day, please fill out the 5% Day Application and submit to or drop off at Greenlife Guest Services.
