Now, when you are purchasing your goods at the Brattleboro Food Co-op, you may choose to “round up” your total to the nearest dollar as a donation to a local community organization.

Each month, we offer support to non-profits to extend our cooperative’s work and meet our Ends Policies.

The goal of Brattleboro Food Co-op’s Round Up program is to raise funds for initiatives in Windham County that work in partnership with us to extend our cooperative’s work and meet our Ends Policies.

The Brattleboro Food Co-op Ends policies are governance policies reflecting Shareholder values and formulated by the Co-op’s Board of Directors. These seven Ends state the purposes of the Brattleboro Food Co-op – what we are trying to accomplish as an organization:

  1. Reasonably priced food and products with an emphasis on healthy, locally grown, organic, and fairly traded goods;
  2. A welcoming community marketplace;
  3. A workplace community where cooperative values are modeled;
  4. A regenerative business that has a net positive environmental impact;
  5. A sustainable local economy;
  6. Relevant information about food and related products, the environment, and the Cooperative Values and Principles;
  7. Reasonable access to participation in the cooperative.

To be considered for this program, a candidate organization must be a tax-exempt non-profit, support community members in Windham County, and have no political or religious affiliations.

Please complete the following web form to apply.

If you are not already familiar with the Co-op’s Ends Policies and Cooperative Principles, please click either/both links to review them before proceeding to the form.
