We are now accepting applicants for our 2021 Change Matters program!
Our Change Matters program supports local nonprofits through small-change donations collected at our registers. Now more than ever, Change Matters funding is critical in helping local nonprofits continue their work in empowering the community, feeding those in need, lending a helping hand, and making our communities better places to live. In 2020, our co-op community donated $110,000 thus far to local organizations through Change Matters and we’re expecting to raise even more in 2021.
In the wake of what has been an unprecedented year, our leadership team felt that we needed to adjust our 2021 Change Matters program to best address the current and most pressing needs in our community.
Changes to 2021 Change Matters:
- We’re focusing our Change Matters efforts on two key initiatives:
- empowering Black, Indigenous and Communities of Color; and
- supporting organizations that are actively addressing the hunger crisis.
- We are adding an Owner Choice month. Owners will vote on a slate of organizations to be the recipient of the December 2021 funds as a part of the 2021 Co-op Election.
