Did you know that the Non-GMO Project currently supports over 12,000 retailers and 43,000 products while operating with only 25 employees on a $3 million annual budget? As a small nonprofit with a big mission, the Non-GMO Project depends on the financial support of consumers, brands, and retailers to sustain and grow our education, outreach, and verification programs.
The Non-GMO Project is a tax-exempt non-profit organization, under the section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and therefore all charitable donations are deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
You’ve heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but did you know the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, #GivingTuesday, is a global movement to celebrate and encourage charitable giving? #GivingTuesday is a great time to not only make a donation to the Non-GMO Project, but also to engage your social network to follow your lead.
Leverage Your Donation
Does your employer offer a workplace giving program through their payroll provider? Workplace giving programs allow you to automatically make a pre-tax donation to your favorite charity from your paycheck. Some employers will even match your donations. If you are not sure what your employer offers, please ask your HR team and be sure to select the Non-GMO Project as your charity. If Non-GMO Project is not on the list of charities in your program, please let us know and we will reach out to sign up.

You Make a Difference
When you Look for the Butterfly, companies listen! Your demand for Non-GMO Project Verified products has inspired food retailers, growers, and processors to go non-GMO all the way up the supply chain, simply because it makes good business sense to provide shoppers the transparency they want. Preserving and building the non-GMO supply chain is a critical step of transitioning toward a safe, healthy food supply for future generations.
We greatly appreciate the trust and support you have given the Butterfly. This growing grassroots movement would not be possible if it weren’t for the choices you make every time you shop.
