Community Support FundActions
Neepawa-Gladstone Co-op’s Community Support Fund provides cash or in-kind donations to non-profit groups and organizations to help support programming, complete projects or improve facilities and/or services that enhance the quality of life in the communities we serve.
This program also includes community sponsorships and gift card/product donations.
If sponsorship is approved, it is expected that Neepawa-Gladstone Co-op is recognized as a sponsor so that attendees, participants and our members are aware of the contribution. The requirements of recognition will be determined by the amount of the sponsorship/donation. Recognition may include signage at events and images to use on your social media posts. These requirements will be communicated after a sponsorship is approved.

More information and requirements
Please note that someone on your group must have a Co-op membership to participate in this program, and that your group’s purpose should align with Neepawa-Gladstone Co-op’s values.
Neepawa-Gladstone Co-op, like other community-minded businesses, receives numerous requests for donations. Please allow a minimum of 2 weeks to review your requests and respond.
We work hard to assist in as many community organizations as possible, however due to the high volume of requests received, not all worthwhile proposals will be approved. Such a response does not reflect upon the value of your organization and the valuable service you provide.
