Our Community Donations program allows community organizations and non-profits to apply for one of three $100 gift cards awarded each month. Many causes and organizations within our community are making a positive difference and worthy of support. We focus our resources on food justice and racial justice in our store neighborhoods so we can more directly impact our local St. Paul community. Please read on to the selection criteria.

Organizations that are awarded donations usually fulfill most, if not all, of the following criteria:

The organization is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit.

The organization is located in Saint Paul and serves one of our store neighborhoods.

The request has been submitted at least one month before the event.

The organization has not already received a donation or sponsorship in this co-op fiscal year (July-June).

Note: Organizations looking for a larger amount of money or a deeper partnership should consider placing a sponsorship request. Sponsorships are typically reserved for events or programs within close proximity and mission alignment with the co-op.
