Learn About Our Ethical
and Sustainable Fundraising Program
Raise money for your cause and do more good in the world with a fair trade fundraiser.
Why fair trade? Fair trade benefits farmers and artisans who are socially and economically marginalized. These producers face steep hurdles when it comes to finding markets or customers for their products.
Fair trade focuses on commodities or goods typically exported from these places such as coffee and tea, chocolate, jewelry, and handmade crafts. Traditional world trade practices don’t usually benefit the artisans and farmers — and often even exploits them.
“The activity both raised money for our schools, and provided students and teachers learning opportunities for understanding around real global issues in the classroom.”
– Rob Dunn,

By buying fair trade, you can:
Foster fair pay and safe working conditions for vulnerable farmers and artisans
Empower marginalized workers
Support communities and build stable local economies
Encourage environmental sustainability
Promote safe, organic farming practices
Why fair trade? When you purchase goods from producers at a fair price, it improves lives and creates lasting change for families and communities. It also allows hard-working farmers and artisans to create goods using their own ethnic practices, helping to keep their culture and heritage alive.
