Linking Faith and Fair Trade in Palestine
Welcome to Canaan Fair Trade's interfaith program for faith communities in the United States who sell our Palestinian fair trade olive oil, foods, and olive oil soap as fundraisers.
Individuals or groups who register to become Interfaith Partners receive a 20% discount on their purchases to be used for their own fundraising and outreach activities. Fundraising need not be an extra program if a group is already doing bazaars, fairs or fair trade sales to their faith community. A reasonable amount charged over and above the purchase cost of Canaan's products provides more funds for projects that you now support or that you want to begin, such as feeding hungry people, helping a hospital in Gaza, sending micro loans to women in India or in Palestine, alternative travel, or building schools in Afghanistan, for example.
In addition, Interfaith Partners can designate a Canaan Fair Trade National Partner. National Partners will receive an additional percent on the sales of these Interfaith Partners at the end of the year from Canaan Fair Trade. Your faith community purchases help Palestinian farmers, help fund your congregation's projects, and can support a national faith-based organization.
We are proud of our relationships with these National Partners:
Friends of Sabeel -North America (FOSNA)
Interfaith Peace Builders (IFPB)
