The Buy The Change Foundation, a registered 501©3 non-profit corporation, was founded in 2013 to work in cooperation with our Buy The Change retail business. BTC donates a portion of every web-sale to the Foundation.
In 2013 we supported the Nepali Youth Foundation – Indentured Daughters Program. In 2014 our Board of Directors initiated the Grassroots Grants Program, giving monetary grants to women artisans for the purpose of eliminating barriers to business and family success.
Applications for the Grassroots Grants Program are accepted in the fall of each year and funds are distributed in December. Grants awarded have included sewing machines for women in Haiti, Uganda and India, water filters for families in Guatemala, work tables for women in India, expansion of a feeding center kitchen in Haiti, metal working machinery for a family run workshop in Cambodia, school tuition for girls in Cambodia and more.
