Simply Organic's Giving History 

Providing consumers the opportunity to use their buying power to support the environmental and social values of organic agriculture has always been part of Simply Organic. Since 2001, we've given back more than $2 million to supporting organic agricultural development and grower communities, including:

  • Helping growers in developing countries produce and market certified organic products.
  • Building training centers that teach organic agriculture methods and wells that bring fresh water to villages; supporting schools, meal programs and other social projects in grower communities.
  • Supporting U.S. organic research and education projects, scholarships in sustainable agriculture, and organic-growing-based social organizations such as urban gardens and community food banks.

The Simply Organic Giving Fund Grant Program

In 2018, we committed to focusing the Simply Organic Giving Fund Grant Program on addressing an issue that’s especially persistent and critical, but that is often overlooked or misunderstood: food insecurity. We’re working to help organizations across the United States and Canada to nourish the millions of food insecure in our communities by supporting organizations that provide access to healthy, organic food options. 

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.

Eligibility:

  • Domestic, nonprofit (501(c)(3)) tax-exempt organizations or grassroots groups serving the food insecure are encouraged to apply for Simply Organic Giving Fund grants.
  • Successful grant applications should meet one or more of the following program priorities:
    • Promote access to organic food options.
    • Utilize and distribute organic food/meals.

Ineligibility:

  • Simply Organic does not fund programs or operating expenses that are politically motivated or that promote religious activities.
