About Glenwood Garden

Glenwood Garden is a social enterprise that supports nonprofit organizations by providing them access to a recurring-revenue stream generated by the sale of artisan made specialty foods and other products on our e-commerce platform. Items sold are sourced from all over the nation and are specifically identified by who made it, and what the sustainably sourced ingredients are. Fifty percent (50%) of gross profits earned through sales made by participating nonprofits’ network of supporters are shared back to the nonprofit using a participation code. Shoppers not referred by a nonprofit and sourced by Glenwood Garden itself share 25% of the gross profits from their purchases with the participating nonprofit of their choice. Participating nonprofits, many suffering from event fatigue and other problems related to ongoing fundraising, gain a new and creative way to interact with their own networks, and also gain a new channel of local, regional and nationwide exposure. They have the opportunity to gain awareness for their cause with potential new members, donors and corporate sponsors through the Glenwood Garden online community.
