When considering a potential Positive Change recipient, we look at the following criteria:
- Does your organizational mission pertain to local and sustainable agriculture, local hunger
initiatives, nutrition education, or environmental sustainability?
- Is your organization within St. Paul or the surrounding community?
- When has your organization last received a donation from Mississippi Market?
We recognize there are many causes worthy of our support, but feel that focusing our resources on a select few areas that relate to our mission has the greatest impact.
At Mississippi Market Co-op’s discretion, the Positive Change recipient calendar may be preempted to raise emergency or disaster relief funds.
April 1st application deadline – July through December recipients chosen.
October 1st application deadline – January through June recipient chosen.
Positive Change applications are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year with bi-annual review dates. Accepted Positive Change recipients will be notified 30-60 days in advance of their Positive Change month start.
