Why Should You Donate to Fair Trade USA?

When you donate to Fair Trade USA, you are supporting our commitment to changing the lives of farmers and farm workers across Latin America, Asia and Africa. Fair Trade USA works to bring economic security, education, medical care, women’s empowerment and environmental sustainability to farming communities around the world. That $1 can go a long way. Since 1999, every $1 Fair Trade USA has spent has generated more than $5 in additional farmer and worker income.

In addition to working with companies to bring new Fair Trade Certified products to shelf, Fair Trade USA works directly with farmers to improve business skills, quality and develop market connections.  We also provide farming organizations with small grants to invest in their businesses to improve farming practices and attend industry events.
