In the Business of Caring
At Seventh Generation, we're not just in the business of creating household and personal care products that help protect human health and the health of the environment, we're also in the business of giving back generously to help make the world a better place.
Through good times and bad, Seventh Generation has made contributions, both cash and product, to non-profit organizations working for progressive social and environmental change. And we're thrilled to announce that the change the company has sought to support over the years has now been formalized with the formation of The Seventh Generation Foundation.
The Seventh Generation Foundation will care today for seven generations of tomorrows by stewarding social and environmental progress in the communities in which we live, work and do business through two grant programs.
Sustainability Grants. Offered by invitation only.
- Grants will be available to field and issue experts working to bring about positive change and sustainable solutions by addressing the social and environmental impacts we contribute to as a business.
VT Community Building Grants. Available to eligible Vermont-based organizations.
- Grants will be offered to VT-based organizations working to make a positive and lasting difference in children’s lives through progress in education, human and environmental health.
This year, Seventh Generation Foundation will award $200,000 in grants to support education, environmental conservation, research and advocacy. Giving was initiated in January awarding grants to the Breast Cancer Fund, Women’s Voices for the Earth, EarthEcho International and Informed Green Solutions. These leading non-profits are working on environmental health solutions that will ensure our children, grandchildren and the environment thrive for generations to come.
