Grass Valley – Are you a nonprofit located within the Sacramento River Watershed with a project or programming that contributes to the overall health of the watershed?  

BriarPatch Food Co-op is issuing a limited number of grants in 2022 as part of a year-long focus on the sustainability and viability of the watershed.    

Through the Cooperative Community Fund, $5,000 is available for grants to one or more qualifying nonprofit groups. The application period will be open May 1 through October 31.   

Since it was established in 2000, the Co-op’s Community Fund has generated more than $60,000 in donations to more than 50 local groups. Grantees are chosen by BriarPatch staff members and checks are distributed to chosen groups as soon as funds are available, typically at the end of the calendar year. Past support is not a guarantee of future support.  

In addition, the application period for the Round Up at the Register program opens June 1 and ends September 30.   

This highly competitive program raises money for a different nonprofit each month when customers “round up” their purchase price at the register. In 2021, BriarPatch donated $40,519 to community causes through the Round Up at the Register program.
