Community Grants


Call for Proposals: Apply Now!

The funding cycle for the 2017 Co-op Community Grants for nonprofit organizations begins in February. These small grants of up to $1500 fund projects that either get overlooked by larger grantors or that focus on underserved populations.

We consider projects that align with our vision of enhancing health and enriching community, and promote our mission to provide education about food, nutrition and health. Projects must also have an embedded sustainability component that relates to a smaller environmental footprint. This year’s application is paperless.

Non profit organizations can ask for program funding in one of our four grant categories:

  • Food and/or Supportive Services for People in Need

  • Environmental or Sustainability Education

  • Environmental Stewardship

  • Educational Programs Focused on Food, Nutrition, and Health

Applicants must have documented tax-exempt status. Requests for personnel or construction costs are not eligible.

Application information will be on our website or at the Information Desk on Monday, February 6, 2017. The online application must be completed by Monday, March 20, 2017. Funds are distributed at a Grant Award event in May. If you have questions about whether your project is eligible for a Community Grant, please contact Annie Hoy, 541-552-5443 or [email protected]
