Round Up For Change for your community!

Local organizations have received a total of $113,78200 through the BFC Round Up program since December 2019.


It’s easy to participate. At check-out, our cashiers will ask you if you would like to “round up” your purchase total to the nearest dollar allowing you to conveniently support a community contribution to the two organizations we feature each month.

The goal of Brattleboro Food Co-op’s Round Up For Change 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 DOWNTOWN BRATTLEBORO ALLIANCE (DBA) is the new steward of Gallery Walk (link below) which is roaring back to magnify the arts and broaden the definition of who considers themselves artists and bring together all parts of our community to create vibrancy and connection.

The funds from Round-Up will be used to help pay for all operating costs associated with hosting Gallery Walk which runs from May – December.
