Ideas to promote your cause

The more members that select your cause and shop with us, the more funding your project will receive.

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


Online

  • 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 so you can use it when promoting your cause.

  • If you have a mailing list, email your supporters asking them to become a Co-op member if they haven’t already.


On social media

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

  • Contact your local newspaper to let them know you’re part of the Local Community Fund and how people can help. You can download our letter to editor if you’d like some guidance on what to say.

  • Put up posters at work, community centres, libraries or anywhere there's a public noticeboard.
