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.

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.
