The James and Anne Robinson Foundation proudly announced its selection as the beneficiary of Whole Foods Market Columbia’s “5% DAY” on May 15, 2015.
Whole Foods Market Columbia holds a “5% DAY” each quarter, donating 5% of a day’s total sales to a local charitable organization. The James and Anne Robinson Foundation is a non-profit foundation in Columbia whose primary mission is to support the Robinson Nature Center.
Members of the Friends of the Robinson Nature Center are familiar with supporting the Center through their donations of time and treasure.
Whole Foods Market views its “5% DAYS” as an opportunity to not only give back to the community financially, but to also partner with a local organization in a meaningful way. “We feel happy and proud to be partnering with the Robinson Foundation that offers an outstanding experience for members of our Columbia community,” said Svetlana Bautista, the store’s Team Leader.
The James and Anne Robinson Foundation encourages all members of the community — especially members of the Center and members of the Friends of the Robinson Nature Center — to support the Center by shopping at Whole Foods Market on May 15. The James and Anne Robinson Foundation retains fiduciary responsibility for dollars donated to the Foundation’s 501(c)(3) trust. Corporate donations from “5% DAY” will become part of the Foundation’s designated funds targeted to support the Robinson Nature Center.
