Empowering Individuals in the Global Community Through Entrepreneurship
You can empower the poor through microcredit by donating $1 at any Whole Foods Market register in the U.S. Give with confidence that your donation will go directly to microlending projects as Whole Foods Market covers 100% of overhead costs of Whole Planet Foundation. Help raise $1 million to enable nearly 25,000* people with the opportunity to lift themselves out of poverty.
*as of December 31, 2008, the current average loan size is $205, with each microcredit client supporting on average 5 family members, in the developing world.

In 2009, the generosity of Whole Foods Market shoppers enabled Whole Planet Foundation to expand to Africa with microlending projects, supporting the very poor in Kenya and Ethiopia. This year, with your help, we hope to reach impoverished communities in South America by raising $1 million for new microlending projects. If you would like to give but do not live near a Whole Foods store, you can give online.
