The Co-op supports local,
non-profit and cooperative organizations that are working to
increase the health of the community and/or the environment.
This includes organizations that address food and nutrition
issues, community building, sustainability, environmental
preservation, cooperative values, local food production, or
alternative/holistic health care.
Funds are limited, the Co-op is not able to grant every
request. Please look over the donations philosophy and
guidelines below, then use the application form to provide
information about your group and its donation needs.
Donations are typically provided in the form of Co-op gift
certificates (in amounts not to exceed $25), which can be
used to purchase goods for your event or as door prizes or
fundraising auction items. Occasionally the Co-op is able to
fill requests for donated products or other items.

The Bring-a-Bag Campaign was launched on Earth Day,
April 22, 2011. The campaign is the Co-opís way to give back
to the community based on shoppers use of their own
sustainable shopping bags instead of the use of plastic or
paper bags at the cost of the Co-op. The fund builds on
credits for each bag saved. At the end of each time period
that revenue is awarded as a donation to a local
organization or project that meets the *selection criteria.
(*See application for selection criteria.)
