Whole Foods, Amazon And Chase Launch Donation To Support Whole Planet Foundation

March 2, 2019

Whole Foods with a store in Harlem announced today that Amazon and Chase also with a store in Harlem will donate an amount equal to 2% of in-store and online purchases made with an Amazon Rewards Visa Card.

With up to a maximum of $1,000,000, to Whole Planet Foundation, a nonprofit organization that alleviates global poverty through microloans.

During this period, customers using the Amazon Rewards Visa Card at Whole Foods will still earn 3% Back on Whole Foods Market purchases, or 5% Back for cardmembers with an eligible Prime membership.

Since 2006, Whole Planet Foundation has disbursed $75 million through microfinance partners in 75 countries, including in 17 cities in the U.S. Whole Planet Foundation collaborates with a wide network of microfinance organizations and supports entrepreneurs in some of the most marginalized and remote communities around the world.

“We are thrilled to have Chase and Amazon donate when shoppers use their Amazon Rewards Visa Card,” said Philip Sansone, president, and executive director for Whole Planet Foundation. “For a woman investing in her home-based bakery, neighborhood shop, small scale farm, or artisan goods she sells in a marketplace, a microcredit loan of $200 or less can give her the chance to create or expand her business, and help lift her out of poverty.”

“We are excited to jointly create, with our partners at Amazon and Whole Foods Market, a program that benefits Whole Planet Foundation and will ultimately have a positive impact on families living in poverty around the world,” said Leslie Gillin, president of Chase Co-Brand Cards. “For using their credit card at Whole Foods, Amazon Reward Visa Cardmembers will continue to get their amazing benefits – such as 5% or 3% Back – as well as support women microentrepreneurs through this campaign. It is truly a win-win.”
