In 2014 Dharma Donated Over $100,000 to Nonprofits

Helping those in need is a founding tenet at Dharma.

We are totally committed to sustainable practices, partners and supporting our greater community by generously giving back where it counts. Since 2008, we have donated a percentage of our profits every year, supporting charitable organizations that serve the greater good.

We generally select nonprofit organizations from five main categories:

  1. Social change/Social Justice
  2. Education
  3. Environment
  4. Health and Welfare
  5. Animal Welfare
