One of our Core Values at Whole Foods Market is to serve and suppor our local and global communities. We are committed to our customers, our team members, and our community and we strive to play an active, positive role within them. When possible, we provide in-kind donations to various non-profit groups in our community. If your non-profit organization is interested in a donation or an event sponsorship, please fill out the form below. Please note, THIS FORM MUST BE FILLED OUT IN ITS ENTIRETY AT LEAST 8 WEEKS PRIOR TO YOUR EVENT OR YOUR EVENT DEADLINE. Although we would love to be able to support every worthwhile cause, due to the volume of applications, it is not possible for Whole Foods Market to fulfill every request. Donation Requests are reviewed on a regular basis. DUE TO THE NUMBER OF REQUESTS WE RECEIVE, ONLY THOSE ORGANIZATIONS WHICH ARE SELECTED WILL BE NOTIFIED.
Whole Foods Market is proud to give back to the community! Four times a year, each store sets aside a day on which 5% of that store’s sales is contributed to a local 501(c)3 non-profit organization. You might be asking, “With so many incredible nonprofits in the Birmingham area, how does Whole Foods Market - Mountain Brook decide who gets to reap the benefits of a 5% Day?” Well, it’s not easy! First, your group MUST possess and provide us a copy of a 501(c)3 letter verifying that you are a tax exempt non-profit organization. Second, complete the application—give us as much information as you can! We want to help, and we seek out groups that will benefit the most from our contribution while putting the funds to good use. We expect our partners to work equally as hard as we will in promoting your group leading up to 5% Day. Finally, our Team Members vote on the submitted applications and majority wins! Please thoroughly read the application below to determine if your organization meets the additonal requirements to benefit from a 5% Community Giving Day at Whole Foods Market.
Completed applications may be mailed to the store and to the attention of the Marketing Team Leader.
