Donations & Sponsorships

Donations & Sponsorships

We strive to be an active part of our community and are happy to consider requests for donations and sponsorships from any local, non-profit group or event. Please submit your requests as far in advance as possible. The more time you give us, the better your chances of getting a donation.

  • Donations - minimum of two weeks notice prior to the event date
  • Sponsorships - minimum of one month notice prior to the event date
  • Grants - Visit our Cooperative Community Fund page

Please submit your request on letterhead and leave at Customer Service in either store or mail to 811 I Street Arcata, CA 95521. You can also email your request to our Administrative Assistant at emilywalter@northcoast.coop. Be sure to include the who, what, where, when and why of the event, plus the contact information for the person collecting the donation. For questions, contact Emily Walter at (707) 822-5947 ext. 263.

*Please note that we donate or sponsor each non-profit group or event once a fiscal year and that we do not donate to individuals.

Share the Spirit
Each year, during the holidays, we make it possible for our shoppers to donate to our local food bank. Shoppers can donate any amount at the register and the Co-op matches up to $5,000. Thanks to our caring community, we are able to give Food for People more than $12,000 on an annual basis! Learn more about Food for People.
