Swanson Cares is the philanthropic arm of Swanson Health supporting causes that reflect our values and commitment to health and wellness. Priority organizations we will be partnering with are focused on youth, the elderly, veterans, first responders, education, food banks, fundraisers/benefits, health-related causes, fitness programs and critical needs.
Currently, the program donates products to local and national organizations in need while we work to set up a 501c3 to be able to financially contribute as well. In September, over $4,000 worth of Swanson product was donated to the YWCA of Cass Clay, the Rape and Abuse Crisis Center FM, and the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Red River Valley. Among the products donated were vitamins, supplements and household cleaning supplies.
Ronald McDonald House Charities
"At RMHC of the Red River Valley we strive to have everything available for families that a person would find at their own home as often they have left in a rush with only their child's health on their mind. This incredible donation from Swanson Health makes it possible to offer vitamins and calming teas for our families as well as keep our House safe and clean with the donation of natural cleaning products—we are grateful!"
Rape and Abuse Crisis Center
"The shampoo and conditioner donated by Swanson Health Products will benefit our clients immensely. Many folks flee from domestic violence with no personal care items. Others are experiencing poverty that prevents them from buying these products. Everyone deserves to be clean and feel cared for, and these products will help with that. I have personally seen how touched a person can be when they receive a good-smelling, quality shampoo, conditioner, or body lotion in a time of need. Sometimes the little things mean a whole lot."
Rachel Gronbach, M. Ed., LPC
"I just want to take a minute and thank Swanson Health so much for providing an essential product to the women and families that we serve here at the YWCA Cass Clay Emergency Shelter. With the support of Swanson Cares Program, people have access to essential vitamins that they might not have otherwise. This is part of the road to recovery, not only for their physical health, but also their emotional health."
Shelter Services Director
Boys & Girls Club of the Red River Valley
"Thank you so much for providing the personal hygiene products to help stock our Teen Club pantry. Our pantry allows the teens to take home the product as needed and helps strengthen their sense of confidence in their personal appearance—something most teens struggle with. Our Teen Club fulfills an important need in our community by providing a safe, caring and fun environment for these 13-17 year olds after school."
Resource and Development Director
National Ovarian Cancer Coalition
"The NOCC appreciates generous partners like Swanson Health, who help further our mission through holistic product donations for our Survivors and Caregivers that can enhance their quality of life."

Once the non-profit 501c3 status is obtained, funds will be raised through Swanson Cares by our employees and customers. Local and national organizations will be able to request to receive product and/or financial assistance in the future through this page. We will review all applications and notify organizations upon being selected. The program will also continue to proactively identify other organizations to support.
