Community Investment
February 4, 2022


Co-op's business model means that instead of dollars leaving the community, 100% of our profits get reinvested in our members and in the communities where we operate. We support and invest in our community because we live and work here too. This creates a sustainable model for a healthy community.


Donations and Sponsorships

Since our start in 1984, we have been supporting a wide variety of events, programs, projects and fundraisers all throughout our district. If your group, non-profit, organization, or club is making a difference in our community and you meet our eligibility guidelines, we welcome you to apply for funding support. 

How to apply:

To be eligible for Lakeland Co-op support, Applicants:

  • must be a registered charity or non-profit organization, a non-profit community group or youth organization, an education event for children/youth, or a community group working toward improving a public/community space
  • must be based in and provide programming/services in Lakeland Co-op's trading area
  • should be a Lakeland Co-op Member — while this is not required, we do encourage all applicants to be a Member of Lakeland Co-op
  • More details about eligibility are included in the application

We receive numerous requests for support, and we do our best to support as many requests as possible. Because of the high volume of requests that we receive, although we recognize the important work that each organization is doing in our community, not all requests will be approved.
