CAMPAIGN: Whole Planet Foundation


This year, Whole Planet Foundation aims to raise $4 million dollars during its Annual Prosperity Campaign to fund microloans for people living in poverty where Whole Foods Market sources products. Amplifying this year’s campaign, suppliers to Whole Foods Market in the Foundation’s top giving levels are collectively donating $1.05 million to fund 31,550 opportunities for low-income entrepreneurs around the world to change their own lives.  

High Brew Coffee has been proudly supporting Whole Planet Foundation since 2007, donating $25,000 to date and pledging $50,000 as a Supplier Alliance for Microcredit member in 2019 to alleviate global poverty. 

Microcredit is small loans – the current average first loan size supported by Whole Planet Foundation is $178 – with no formal collateral or contract, provided to the world’s poorest people – mostly women - to create or expand a business for the opportunity to pull themselves and their families out of poverty. 

High Brew Coffee believes in giving back to the communities where they source their products. In addition to their support of Whole Planet Foundation, High Brew Coffee gives a portion of sales from every purchase to support the De Los Andes Cooperativa in Colombia. This Direct Trade partnership allows them to help their farmers achieve greater profitability.  “Partnering with Whole Planet Foundation is a great vehicle for us to empower working women all in Colombia and around the world by helping them gain access to funding to grow their businesses,” says the team from High Brew Coffee.

Whole Planet Foundation’s global impact has reached microentrepreneurs in 75 countries thanks to supplier donors - like High Brew Coffee - who have contributed more than $12 million for poverty alleviation.  During March, the generosity of High Brew Coffee is being spotlighted in Whole Planet Foundation’s Annual Prosperity Campaign, taking place in Whole Foods Market stores and online.  Please join High Brew in alleviating poverty and make your donation today to #FundHerFuture.
