The Co-op Community Fund was established in August 2013. Members are given the opportunity to purchase a 50/50 ticket at the check-out for $2.00. The draw runs from Sunday to Saturday of each week and a winner is drawn at the beginning of the following week from a computer generated list.
Proceeds from this draw have surpassed $1,200,000. Organizations seeking support through our 50/50 fund are invited to apply by filling out an application, which usually becomes available in March with a deadline of May 31.
