Update: August 26/2021
We have decided to allocate all of our remaining funds for 2021/2022 to support a project we're very proud of. We've partnered with the Vancouver Aboriginal Friendship Centre Society and the Vancouver Mural Festival to create a mural at the rear of our East Vancouver store. This is by far the biggest single sponsorship we’ve ever taken on in the history of our company. We feel that this project is important to help start community conversations about the path of reconciliation.
We are not accepting applications again until 2023.
As a small family run business, we recognize the commitment for local community involvement. We proudly donate to a variety of community-based events and corporate initiatives that align with our values and goals
We know that each and every request we receive supports a wonderful cause and we are honored to be included in so many great initiatives. Due to the overwhelming number of requests we receive each year, we have developed a list of eligibility criteria.
Important: We will not accept any applications made in person or over the phone
We are most likely to support requests that:
- Focus on children and youth in need
- Support feeding less fortunate persons
- Foster community growth that benefits families and children in our store communities in Strathcona and Kitsilano
- Support food and cooking
We do not support requests that are:
- Requested on short notice
- Fundraising for individuals or for profit businesses
- Outside of the Vancouver lower mainland
- Political organizations
- Organizations that discriminate
Unfortunately we are unable to support organizations such as sports teams due to the sheer number of requests we receive. We believe it would be unfair to support one person or team and not the other.
