Community Investment FundActions
The Community Investment Fund program is designed to support local events, community groups and non-profit organizations that we serve. We welcome the opportunity to be involved and help build a stronger community through events or programs that enrich the lives of community members.

• If sponsorship is approved, it is expected that Evergreen Co-op is acknowledged with banners and/or signage, so that attendees, participants and our members are aware of the contribution
• A picture will be required with the recipients of the donation or sponsorship and posts on social media and any other news media may be used as a ‘Thank You”.
• Youth organizations or sports teams and events
• Local school teams, activities and events
• Community groups and non-profit organizations and events
The following programs/groups are ineligible to apply:
