GIVE! Non-Profit Support Program

Whole Foods Co-op supports our community with donations to a new non-profit each month, as elected by Co-op Owners each fall in the annual ballot. This program is called GIVE! Non-profit Support Program and has supported Life House, Men as Peacemakers, CHUM, WFC Access Discount, and many other important non-profits doing critical work in our community.

Monthly GIVE! round-up donations are divided between the featured Non-Profit Support Program and the Grow Local Food Fund. Thank you for contributing to our community by rounding up at the registers!
