The Give Where You Live Campaign is a national effort to support food cooperatives across the U.S. in building local Cooperative Community Funds.
Sponsored by the Twin Pines Cooperative Foundation, each fund will serve as a means for co-op members and shoppers to make donations to an endowment that donates to local non-profit organizations.
The interest earned by each Fund will be given annually to local groups working on issues relating to sustainable agriculture and organic food, hunger and social issues, environmental protection and cooperatives.
The Give Where You Live Campaign represents each Co-op's special effort to give back to those deserving--and hard working--groups that build community.
Give Where You Live! Because great organizations begin here.
Food Conspiracy’s Cooperative Community Fund (CCF) is one of 19 local Cooperative Community Funds in the country, all of which are sponsored by the Twin Pines Cooperative Foundation. Every year, Food Conspiracy invests several thousand dollars into our CCF. This investment, paired with donations made by members and shoppers, has been helping our fund grow steadily since we started it in 2001. Each February, the interest from our CCF is donated to five local non-profits of our members’ choosing.
Any local organization that is a certified not-for-profit and has a mission compatible with that of the Co-op’s may apply to be one of our CCF winners. Applicant profiles are published in the January newsletter for voting on by our members, and winners are announced at the Annual Meeting each February.
