Donations and Community Giving at Naperville

Whole Foods Market is a company with a conscience. We believe companies, like individuals, must assume their share of responsibility as tenants of Planet Earth. We believe passionately in supporting the Naperville 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


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.


Our One Dime at a Time 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 that month’s selected charity organization.

For all donation, sponsorship, and community partner requests, please fill out our on-line submission form at
