Apply for VFC Cooperative Community Fund Grant Today!

Calling All Local Nonprofits

We are pleased to announce that applications are now available for our first ever VFC Cooperative Community Fund (CCF) Grant!

Local nonprofit organizations are invited to apply for a VFC CCF Grant October 1-31, 2018 for any amount up to $1,000.

Priority is given to grant requests for educational projects, development projects, and local events that match VFC’s mission and focus on but are not necessarily limited to: food and food systems, nutrition, health and well-being, cooking education, sustainable agriculture, cooperative education, and social change.

We established the VFC Cooperative Community Fund in 2016 with the specific goal of providing grant funding to local nonprofit organizations that have a mission consistent with the Viroqua Food Co+op. VFC CCF is an endowment that is administered through Twin Pines Cooperative Foundation (501(c)(3)), which makes tax deductible donations to the VFC CCF. As more money is added to the fund, we accrue more interest and can give out larger grants. Be sure to round up your purchases at the register during October 2018 to contribute to the VFC Cooperative Community Fund and help make a bigger impact!
