2019 Pennies for Change Application

Thank you for your interest in this program!

The Pennies for Change program is one of the Co-op’s many giving programs. Customers can donate their change to our community partners by rounding at the registers to the next full dollar amount.
The Co-op's Board of Directors has established the following policy and are organized under the following four themes:

  • Food assistance to alleviate hunger,
  • Community building (including support of regional agriculture),
  • Promotion of cooperative principles and activities
  • Environment, energy and sustainability.

    All applicants must be a 501(c) 3 organization. If you have any questions, please call 603-640-6340 or email aprilharkness [at] coopfoodstore.com (April Harkness.)

    Fund Distribution

    Of the funds collected each month, 60 percent goes to our food access partners: LISTEN Community Services, Upper Valley Haven, and Willing Hands. The remaining 40 percent will be split between two other community partners. These two partners change on a monthly basis.


    Funds have already been allocated through December 2018. If you’d like apply for 2019, there will be two cycles of application deadlines:

    FIRST DEADLINE: September 1st, 2018 (applicants will be notified of decisions November 2018)
    SECOND DEADLINE: April 1st, 2019 (applicants will be notified of decisions June 2019)
