Lakewinds is committed to contributing to our communities. One of the ways we give back is through our fundraising donation program. This program is ideal for silent auctions, drawings, or prizes for a fundraising event or campaign. We contribute in the form of Lakewinds gift cards ranging from $50 – $100 or occasional products to organizations whose programs or projects that serve the communities also served by Lakewinds. We give consideration to organizations and events that fit the following criteria:

  • Environmental groups
  • Sustainable agriculture and organic food processors
  • Education in the area of nutrition, health, and wellness
  • Cooperative, community-based businesses
  • Non-profit entities that reflect Lakewinds’ cooperative principles
  • Non-sectarian, non-partisan organizations

To submit a request for Lakewinds’ consideration, download an application or stop by our customer service desk for a hard copy. Donations are considered monthly, so we request that you submit your application at least six weeks in advance.

Lakewinds has a limited donation budget, and we are unable to support every request. If you have any questions about your event or donation, please email us at marketing@lakewinds.coop. We will only contact you if your donation request has been accepted.

If you are looking for a larger contribution for your organization, our customers support our monthly Round Up program by rounding up their grocery total to the next dollar.
