We Are Not For Sale
We grow self-sustaining social projects and
purpose-driven business to end exploitation and forced labor.
These enterprises create opportunities,
and return revenue to those who need it most.
Human trafficking is found in communities that lack economic opportunity,
and are plagued with environmental degradation.
We create and support businesses in these communities, to inoculate them against trafficking.
Our entire overhead cost is covered by our sustainable revenue model.
That means 100% of your donation goes to our 8 projects around the world that create opportunities and bring freedom to vulnerable communities.
WHAT MAKES NOT FOR SALE DIFFERENT?
Not For Sale is an international non-profit based in San Francisco that works to end exploitation and protect communities around the world from human trafficking and modern-day slavery.
Our goal is to identify innovative, sustainable, market-based solutions to address and prevent the root causes of human trafficking around the world.
We developed a methodology to create economic opportunities in vulnerable communities. Not For Sale builds viable, successful companies that bakes into the very DNA of the company that creates value throughout the whole process — from the sourcing of the goods, to the manufacturing of product, to the way we sell it — and return the profits back to the community.
We create Enterprises, born out of a Mission.

Not For Sale has built the world’s first proven solution to modern slavery. Through our global projects – in places like Peru, Thailand, and Amsterdam – our members have fed, housed, and educated hundreds of thousands of people affected by human trafficking and forced labor. Unfortunately, this is where most organizations stop.
Since 2007, we have directly supported over 20,000 survivors of human trafficking. Other non-profits would consider this a success. But we believe we should stop trafficking before it starts.
Starting in 2010, we took the next step. We believe human trafficking can be stopped before an individual is trafficked. We fight vulnerability to exploitation at its core by strengthening communities with economic opportunity.
Out of passionate collaboration between Not For Sale and successful, serial entrepreneurs and innovators, we create and support Enterprises that live and breathe our Mission.
In fact, for us, the Enterprise is the Mission.
If we miss the opportunities to build real businesses and products that give back to social projects, we’ll never find enough resources to transform all the people affected by modern slavery. By building new ventures with even better products, we can replace forced labor inside the supply chains.
