Introducing our New Change for Change Program!
Heres how it works:
Each time you shop at River Valley Co-op, a friendly co-op cashier will ask if you'd like to donate to Change for Change. This rounds your bill to the nearest dollar, with all of the change going to one organization in our community each month.
Nominate a nonprofit:
You can nominate a local nonprofit that serves our community in areas of social justice, education, or environmental protection:
To nominate a local nonprofit to be voted on to receive Change for Change Donations, complete a nomination form at the customer service desk or fill out form below. Please note, nominees that do not receive the most votes, but do receive 10 votes or more the first month they are nominated, are automatically renominated for a second month. After two months, a new nominations form must be completed again.
- Nominations are due by the 20th of each month.
- Voting is completed by the 29th of each month.
- Donation collections begin on the 1st of each month.
Note: Only co-op owners are eligible to nominate organizations and to vote on recipients. One vote per membership. However, all co-op shoppers will have the option to donate at the register.
