Investing in the communities where we live and work
The Traditional Medicinals Foundation was formed in 2008 with a mission of focusing on social initiatives in our source communities around the world. We’ve worked to address fundamental issues of food and water security, healthcare, education, women’s empowerment, and advocacy for a social business model where community-led development, equitable trade, and compassionate capitalism benefit every stakeholder. As part of fulfilling our charter commitment to improve the lives and livelihoods for our farmers and collectors, this important work with source communities is now held by our company. Traditional Medicinals will build on the legacy of the Foundation’s investment in our source communities, continuing the important work of creating social equity within the business of plant medicine. The Traditional Medicinals Foundation now works closely with nonprofit organizations to partner on programs that focus on equity and capacity building and expanding access to herbal medicine.
We also encourage our employees to give back through volunteerism and donations, and support those efforts through funding a number of employee grants programs that match their contributions
