WabiSabi partners with nonprofits that strengthen the Moab community and strive to wisely use resources to provide for those in need. The outlet hopes to serve the largest cross-section of the community as possible.

With those guidelines in mind, WabiSabi’s Nonprofit Partners are selected to serve the largest variety of ages, cultural backgrounds, and causes as possible. Twelve local nonprofits have been chosen to receive funding for 2019.

WabiSabi is pleased to welcome back Grand Area Mentoring, Arches Education, BEACON, KZMU, the Youth Garden Project, the Moab Valley Multicultural Center, Grand Area Mentoring, Moab Solutions, Community Rebuilds, and the Family Support Center.

The Moab Free Health Clinic, another returning partner, won the Community Poll, which lasted the month of November and was available on WabiSabi’s Facebook page.

WabiSabi is also welcoming two other organizations for 2019: the Humane Society of Moab Valley, a past partner, and Rim to Rim Restoration, a new partner.

Since 2005, WabiSabi has donated more than $330,000 to its partners. When customers shop at the WabiSabi Thrift Store, approximately half of the proceeds are donated to local nonprofit organizations.

Patrons are given the option to vote after every purchase or donation by placing a wooden token in one of WabiSabi’s nonprofit jars. Financial awards are given biannually to each agency based on the number of customer votes received by each one.
