Motherlove's Nurturing Life Giving Program

In 2005, Motherlove's founder, Kathryn Higgins, created our Nurturing Life Giving Program as a way to formally give back to her local community. We do this in a number of different ways including financial support, product donations, and volunteering as a staff. Much of our philanthropy is focused on organizations that work in our local community of Fort Collins, Colorado but we also support organizations nationwide that focus on issues pertaining to women, children, and the environment.

A portion of all of Motherlove's sales goes directly to our Nurturing Life Giving Program so every purchase you make helps us support organizations such as:

Trees, Water & People

Trees, Water & People, based in Motherlove's hometown of Fort Collins, CO aims to improve people's lives by helping communities protect, conserve, and manage the natural resources upon which their long-term well-being depends. For 20 years Trees, Water & People has been a leader in not only reforestation, but also in the design and distribution of clean cookstoves, rainwater catchment systems, and other technologies that improve quality of life in rural areas and reduce natural resource use.

Food Bank for Larimer County

Food Bank for Larimer County is committed to not only providing the day-to-day nutritional assistance to their neighbors in need, but also to help stabilize their lives by providing health and hope, and putting them on a path to self-sufficiency. In addition to supporting their fundraising events throughout the year, Motherlove donates thousand of pounds of fresh, organic produce from our farm directly to their facility.

In addition to our financial giving, Motherlove encourages our staff to volunteer in the local community. As a team, we've built homes for Habitat for Humanity, cleaned our local rivers, worked at fundraising events for area non-profits, and staffed a Diapering and Nursing Tent at local fairs.
