We have a powerful story to tell and we are always looking for ways to promote our mission of providing a fair income to artisans around the world. We have staff and volunteers available to present to your group, illness or we can host you at our stores for an information and shopping evening. We also participate in events in other communities. To find out about upcoming events visit our Facebook events page.

Fundraising Evenings

Looking for a fun and easy way to fundraise? Want to build community at home and abroad? Ten Thousand Villages offers you a unique opportunity to do so!

We would love to host your group at one of our stores, about it with your guests enjoying free coffee and snacks while casually exploring an environment of culturally rich and fairly traded products. Not only will your event help support artisans around the world, but 10% of sales will go directly to your organization of choice.

We are able to help groups to organize exclusive shopping events, as well as to distribute coupons for supporters to visit the store on a particular day. If you would like to discuss the possibility of partnering with Ten Thousand Villages in a fundraising initiative, please be in touch with our store.

Group Presentations

Would your church group, school, workplace or other organization be interested in learning how fair trade makes a difference to thousands of people in some of the poorest parts of the world?

Please contact the store to speak with our manager about opportunities for presentations.
