Community Support & Donations
We support the efforts of many local community groups and schools to raise funds and make celebrations through sponsorships, raffle gift bags, dessert donations, and store gift cards. You can now apply for a Co-op donation online. The form to do so is below.
The Skagit Valley Food Co-op is proud to support and make significant contributions to local community groups in a variety of ways, including our donation program. Although we would like to support every worthwhile cause, due to the overwhelming volume of submissions, it is not possible to fulfill every request. Our decisions are based on a group’s consistency with the Skagit Valley Food Co-op Mission Statement, the number of people who will benefit, as well as the funds available in our donation program’s budget at the time a request is received. Most donations will be provided in the form of gift cards or in-kind donations, but exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis.
We welcome your request, but we ask that you thoroughly review the guidelines below before making your submission. Donation requests must be made formally using the Donation Request Form. You can submit it at one of the front registers, attn: Outreach Department. You may also drop it off in person on the 3rd floor of the Co-op Building, room 301. Donation requests will only be reviewed once per week. We request that you please give us at least four weeks’ notice to consider, fulfill, and deliver donations. Requests made less than 4 weeks in advance of the event will not be considered.
Our current donation form is below. If you have questions about submitting a donation application, please email us at community(at)skagitfoodcoop(dot)com.
