If you are interested in having Rainbow sponsor a specific event, or would like an in-kind donation of food or other items, use the form on the right or email email@example.com.
The Donations Committee requests FOUR weeks from the time your request is submitted until we can process. The information entered below is the minimum we require for considering your request.
The Committee largely provides one-time donations for organizations, and not events. The Committee is made up of two worker-owners who are elected annually by the rest of the cooperative. The purpose of the Committee is to administer donations to local non-profit organizations, groups and projects in our community.
Previous donations/grants from Rainbow do not guarantee future awards. Our committee members are often working on the sales floor when Donations calls come in, for this reason we suggest that you email any/all questions about the Donations process.
Your organization must have tax-exempt 501(c)(3) status or be fiscally sponsored by a 501(c)(3). If you are requesting food, please note that you should estimate the cost of what you are requesting and specify that amount. You can then explain what the amount requested will be used for.
All Rainbow Donations are currently awarded as a check. Checks cannot be redeemed or cashed at Rainbow, please keep this in mind as all checks will be awarded and sent to the organization named on this application.
