At Whole Foods Market we actively participate in our community. We are extremely proud of our neighborhood involvement and the relationships we continue to forge. To best fit the needs of our community, we live our philanthropic mission through a variety of giving opportunities.
We offer various donations to 501(c) 3 organizations. On a local basis, we are actively involved in our communities by:
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 6 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.
Our Community 5% Days are one meaningful way we give back to our community. These Community Support Days consist of in-store events and demos, and end with five percent of the day’s net sales being donated to the benefiting organization. Customers help support our selected organizations just by shopping on these 5% Days.
Our Bag Donation program provides an incentive to our customers to eliminate single-use plastic bags and develop stronger communities all at the same time. At the register, customers will have the option to receive a 10 cent per bag refund as cash back off their receipt or they can choose to donate it to one of the month’s selected charity or local school organizations.
If you are interesting in applying for our Your Change, Creates Change Program please download our Bag_Donation_Application and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or drop it off at our Customer Service Desk.
