Caring for Communities
Collaboration has always been at the heart of our business and we are always looking for opportunities to learn more about how we might best serve our customers and communities. Learn more about how you can request support from Whole Foods Market.
Our Community Giving Programs include:
5% Community Giving Days
We collaborate with participating organizations to promote the partnership and generate sales on the day of the event. The participating organizations must have the capability to promote the event within their organizations and communities. On a 5% Day, selected organizations table in stores throughout the day to educate and interact withWhole Foods Market customers.
Bag Refund Donation Program
In many markets, customers who shop with their reusable bags have the option of receiving a 5 or 10 cent credit (amount varies by location) per bag or donating that credit to a selected non-profitorganization. Recipient organizations are typically designated on a quarterly basis and help promote the Bag Refund Donation Program within the local community.
Whole Foods Market can provide in-kind donations in the form of Whole FoodsMarket gift cards, which community partners can use to support their programming or events.
Whole Foods Market has established 3 foundations that operate independently of our company. Please visit the foundations’ websites for more information about their giving priorities and application processes.
