East End Food Co-op is committed to supporting the community that it serves. Our donation programs are one of the many ways we strive to fulfill our Ends Policy Statement.  Both our Ends Policy Statement and Donation Policy were revised in 2013 to enable us to better serve our members and community.

There are two components of our donation program:

  • General Donations will be most commonly made in the form of gift certificates, but exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis.
  • Register Round-Ups occur when an EEFC customer opts to round up their shopping bill to the nearest dollar and donate the difference.  Recipients will receive a full month to accumulate proceeds and must promote their involvement with the East End Food Co-op Register Round-Up program through their organization’s channels of communication.

Donation Requests

We welcome your request to be considered as a candidate for either program, but we ask that you thoroughly review the Donation Policy before making your submission. Once you’ve reviewed the policy, please complete and submit the Donation Request Form.
