Simply Organic - Giving Back

Workers sort vanilla beans in Madagascar, where the Simply Organic 1% Fund helped build 49 wells in vanilla-growing communities to give villagers access to clean water.

Giving Back: The Simply Organic 1% Fund

We better the lives of small organic growers and their communities in developing countries with our Simply Organic 1% Fund, which gives back 1% of all Simply Organic sales to support organic agriculture through research, education and grower development.

Each purchase of a Simply Organic product helps support organics and organic growers around the world through the Simply Organic 1% Fund.

About The Fund

Simply Organic has given more than a million dollars to organic research, education and grower development projects since the Simply Organic 1% Fund was established in 2001. One percent of all Simply Organic sales go into the fund, which supports training and community projects for organic farmers where our spices are grown, as well as a variety of organizations and events that study, support and promote organic agriculture.

A notable project, implemented with joint funding from the Simply Organic 1% Fund and the Frontier Foundation, is a continuing scholarship in the farming apprentice program of the University of California Santa Cruz Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems.

For over three decades, Frontier Co-op has been a leader in promoting organic products and supporting organic agriculture. And now the sales of the co-op’s all-organic brand, Simply Organic, funds organizations and projects around the world that support organics. Other Simply Organic 1% Fund donations include NOFA/Mass, Archi's Acres, Summer of Solutions, Mesa Verde Gardens, Georgia Organics, Farmshare Austin, The Organic Center, Sri Lanka Training Center, and Madagascar Wells.

How to Apply

If you are part of, or know of, an organization or project that supports organic agriculture or uses organic growing as part of a program to help disadvantaged people, see our Grant Application page for complete information on applying for a Simply Organic 1% grant.

The Bigger Picture

The Simply Organic 1% Fund is one of a number of Frontier Co-op's charitable initiatives. Each of the co-op's three brands has an established fund for social giving, and Frontier partners responsibly with the people who grow our botanicals and helps improve life in their communities. We also support initiatives and charitable causes that better our local communities.
