Impact Giveback

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT & EMERGENCY SUPPORT

Impact Giveback Campaigns


While we believe the most effective way to combat poverty is by creating dignified, sustainable jobs, we also provide supplemental financial donations to meet the extra needs of Artisan families and their communities. Noonday’s annual Impact Giveback Campaigns, part of the Flourishing World Initiative, raise funds for a specific country, partner, or cause through incentives designed to raise awareness about our collective impact.

Over $110,000 DONATED SINCE 2016

Each June, Noonday’s Ambassadors, Hostesses, and customers come together to raise awareness about our collective impact and provide additional funds for the selected Impact Giveback cause. The cause of each annual Impact Giveback Campaign is selected in accordance with our Artisan Partners, who are local to their communities and have the greatest understanding of its needs.

Gather for Global Good, Impact Giveback 2020

10% of all sales from Gather for Global Good Trunk Shows in June were designated to increase emergency funding for Artisan Businesses facing the global pandemic.
