Local Community Fund

Ideas for how to promote your cause

The more members that select your cause, the more funding your project will receive.

You should encourage members to choose you as their cause by promoting your project online, on social media and in your community.


  • If you have a website add a link to your cause’s unique profile page so members can easily find and select you as their local cause.

  • Save the Co-op logo jpg (34kb) so you can use it when promoting your cause. Read about how you can and can’t use our logo in the logo brand guidelines pdf (3,887kb).

  • If you have a mailing list, email your supporters asking them to become a Co-op member if they haven’t already and then select you as their local cause.

On social media

  • Follow Co-op on social media to stay up to date with the latest news and connect with other causes:

  • Get in touch with your local Co-op Food store and funeral home. They will be able to help you promote your cause.
