How to apply?
In the fall, the Co-op member-owners are eligible to vote for a predetermined number of charitable organizations from the greater Concord and New London areas that have met the stated Community Partner program application guidelines. Once selected, the Co-op Director of Development will meet with each of the subsequent calendar year Community Partners to review the budgeted level of support and to create a plan for how the support will be provided. Next year the Co-op members will vote for four non-profits to support in 2018.
To be considered for the Community Partner program the organization must:
✔ be a charitable not-for-profit
✔ have a non-political and secular mission
✔ focus their efforts in New Hampshire
✔ be socially and environmentally responsible
✔ do work that is complementary to the Co-op’s mission
