Thank you for supporting authentic fair trade and looking for ways to raise money for your group while helping small-scale farmer co-ops around the world.
For the past 15 years, we’ve offered a traditional catalog fundraising program. As technology has advanced, catalog fundraising has become less popular, so we have decided to end our catalog program as of April 30, 2020, and reimagine a new fundraising program starting this fall. Stay tuned for details on our new fundraising program in the months to come.
If you’d like to do an Equal Exchange fundraiser without catalogs, you can run one on the online platform created by FarmRaiser.Learn More About Online Fundraising
