Co-op Local Community Fund

The Co-op Local Community Fund helps pay for local projects that our members care about.

Every time our members shop at Co-op, 1% of what they spend on selected own-branded products and services goes to help fund community projects where they live.

We also give all money raised from shopping bag sales to our causes, to help even more.


Promote your cause

Members can choose which cause their own 1% goes to - so the more members that pick your project the more money you'll get.

Co-op Membership

Much of the money we raise comes from Co-op members, and it's Co-op members who decide which causes we support. Get your supporters to become members, and start earning rewards for themselves and their community.

Apply to be a local cause

We choose new causes for our communities every 12 months. Applications are currently closed and will next open in spring 2019.

To be accepted you must have a project in mind that will benefit your local comunity. Many applications are from charities or local community groups, but as long as your organisation isn’t run for private profit you can apply.
