Frontier Co-op has a long tradition of giving back. From our earliest years, we have partnered with farmers around the world that grow and harvest organically. As we grew, we created charitable funds for each of our three brands, Frontier Co-op, Simply Organic and Aura Cacia to implement our various social giving programs.
More than half of Frontier's charitable funds go directly toward improving life in the communities that grow our products through our Well Earth sourcing program. These farmers and partners are often under-privileged, isolated communities that lack clean water, paved roads, education and medical care. Since 2008 we have been helping feed school children in India, both providing them with needed nourishment and helping keep them in school.
The Frontier Foundation was established in 2000 as a philanthropic organization to support social, educational, and environmental causes and has since given millions to a variety of charities and organizations.

SIMPLY ORGANIC 1% FUND
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.
AURA CACIA POSITIVE CHANGE PROJECT
Everywhere in the world, women of courage and determination are trying to better their lives in the face of seemingly overwhelming difficulties. We're inspired by these women and have created the Aura Cacia Positive Change Project to help support them. Each time you purchase an Aura Cacia product, you support our Positive Change Project and the many resilient women it benefits.
