Register Round-Up_Social Media.jpg

This spring, we are launching a new Register Round-Up program!

Starting in May, Co-op shoppers will have the option to round up their grocery bill to the next dollar and donate to a local charity chosen by our Member-Owners.

Here’s How it Works:

  • Nominations open February 1 and must adhere to the following criteria:

    • Nominator must be a Member-Owner of the Portland Food Co-op

    • Nominations limited to one (1) per Member-Owner

    • Nominee must be a local 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, based or headquartered in the Greater Portland area. Local charity examples include but are not limited to animal welfare, environmental protection, health, education, food security, arts & culture, peace & human rights

    • Nominees cannot be directly affiliated with a religious organization or political party

  • First round voting will open on March 1. During this time, Member-Owners can vote on their top ten (10) picks for charity round-ups.

  • Final voting will open on April 23 at our Annual Meeting & Celebration and continue online through April 30.

    • This final voting round will narrow the selection of charities to four (4) total and each will be designated to a quarterly (3-month) period.

      • Local Charity #1: May / June / July

      • Local Charity #2: August / September / October

      • Local Charity #3: November / December / January

      • Local Charity #4: February / March / April
