Seeds for Change Application 

Every September non-profit organizations can apply to be considered for the Co-op’s Seeds for Change Round-Up Program. Applications for 2024 are no longer being accepted.

The Seeds for Change Round-Up Program is open to organizations that meet the following criteria:

  • Registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations (fiscally sponsored organizations are only eligible if the organization has their own 501(c)3 status) and federally recognized tribal governments (sorry, no schools or government agencies.)
  • Based in the communities served by the North Coast Co-op (Humboldt County) and funding is for projects that serve our community. 
  • Funds must be used in non-sectarian and non-partisan ways.
  • The same organization cannot participate two years in a row.

All qualified organizations will be put on a list for a member vote. The top organizations selected by the membership will get a spot in the program. Winners of the member vote will be announced in December. At North Coast Co-op’s discretion, the recipient calendar may be preempted to raise emergency or disaster relief funds.

The Co-op predesignates round-up months for Food for People, Twin Pines Community Fund, and the Co-op Pumpkin Patch.
