The 7th Cooperative Principle is Concern for Community: “While focusing on member needs, co-operatives work for the sustainable development of their communities through policies accepted by their members.”
The Davis Food Co-op reviews requests for charitable donations and sponsorships monthly. If you are doing something local that supports our Ends, we may be able to lend a hand.

Organizations are eligible for one donation per year, so please plan appropriately and decide when it is best to request your donation.
