Concord Food Co-op

The Co-op’s Round-It-Up at the Register program is an easy way for Co-op shoppers to donate to local organizations that are making our community a better place. Our Change Matters program provides shoppers an opportunity to help local community-enrichment organizations by making small-change donations, which accumulate into a meaningful contribution for the recipient. Round-It-Up at the Register is a simple program which will empower our shoppers to round their purchase to the nearest dollar and donate the difference to our partnered organization. For example, if a transaction totals $4.51, you will have the option of rounding your purchase up to $5.00 and donating $0.49 to the partner organization.

“Round-It-Up really generated a lot of excitement among our staff, members, and stakeholders. We are grateful to have been selected and the funds will assist us in providing support and education to individuals, families, and communities impacted, by mental illness and suicide.”   Kenneth Norton, Executive Director, NAMI NH

The monthly recipient organizations for 2020 have been  scheduled (see below).  During the month of August 2019, when a customer Rounded-Up at the register, they  voted for a 2020 nonprofit to receive the monthly Round-it-Up donations. 

How will 2021 nonprofits be selected?

Throughout October of 2020, the Co-op will have a nomination form for 2021 nonprofit recipients. The form will be located in the Co-op entrance atrium.  Only one nomination is needed to be considered to be on the November Ballot. 

During November 2020, each time a customer Rounds-Up at the register they will be able to vote for a 2021 nonprofit to receive the monthly Round-it-Up donations.  At the end of November, the twelve nonprofits that received the most votes will be assigned a month in 2021 to receive 100% of the Round-it-Up donations.

2020 recipients and donations received,  

From April 2019 through June ending 2020, $53,336  has been given to local nonprofits through the Round-it-Up at the Register Program.
