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
Final selections will be announced on May 1.
