Weaver Street Market awards grants each year to local nonprofits for community projects that focus on “Access to Healthy Food.”
The grants come from our Cooperative Community Fund (CCF), a sustainable endowment fund for community donations. WSM grows the endowment fund through contributions from owners and shoppers, including the purchase of Hope for the Holiday products, proceeds from wine shows and co-op events, and donated owner dividends and shares. The endowment’s current value is $332,247.
Grants are paid from the interest that the endowment fund generates. Each year, a committee of consumer owners and worker owners evaluates grant applications and selects recipients. Since its first grant award in 2006, the CCF has awarded grants to 42 local nonprofit organizations for a total of more than $70,500.
The CCF Grant Committee is now accepting applications for 2023 Grants. The grant application below includes a FAQ page about the selection process. Applications are due 10 pm, Tuesday, August 15.
