Seeds for Change Round-up Program
Seeds for Change is a community-giving opportunity that allows customers to ‘round up’ their Co-op purchases to the nearest dollar. We take those extra cents and give them directly to local organizations that are working to better our community. A different nonprofit organization is selected to benefit from the round ups each month.
The Co-op dedicates round ups for Food for People, Twin Pines Community Foundation and the Co-op Pumpkin Patch. The remaining nine months of the year are available through an annual application process for nonprofits that focus on food security, sustainable agriculture, food nutrition and education, environmental responsibility, racial and social equity or cooperative economies.
Seeds for Change Application
Interested non-profit organizations can apply to be considered for the Co-op’s new Seeds for Change Round Up Program to support projects related to food security, sustainable agriculture, food nutrition and education, environmental responsibility, racial and social equity or cooperative economies. Applications for 2021 will be available later in 2020.
The Seeds for Change Round Up Program is open to organizations that meet the following criteria:
Registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations (sorry, no schools)
Based in the communities served by the North Coast Co-op (Humboldt, Del Norte and Trinity Counties)
Funds must be used in non-sectarian and non-partisan ways
Funding is for projects that serve our community
Each year, nine organizations are selected. The Co-op predesignates round-up months for Food for People, Twin Pines Community Foundation and the Co-op Pumpkin Patch. All qualified organizations will be put on a list for a member vote. The top nine organizations selected by the membership will get a spot in the program.
