We understand that many fundraising events for local non-profits and charitable organizations planned for this year will not happen, and that you need this money to exist. We want you to still be around when this is over, so we are offering an option of granting (grants between $1,000 and $10,000) through the Prairie Sky Co-op Community Investment fund.
Prairie Sky Co-operative’s Community Response Program Grant is a one-time funding intended to support qualified charitable or non-profit organizations in our trading area whose staff, volunteers, programs and operations have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19.
For eligibility criteria and application form and information, see the link below.
Applications received before May 21st will be reviewed by management and board of directors.
Prairie Sky Co-op has the authority to approve, deny or alter all grant funding application requests.
