Donation Policy and Request Form
The Medford Cooperative mission states that we will serve your community cooperatively and professionally. With that, a large part of the cooperative spirit is supporting the communities that support us. We believe it is important to share our success with our customers as well as the communities we serve. To do so, we provide donations to non-profit organizations that align with our funding priorities:
- Education and Youth Development
- Community Growth and Development
- Community Well-being and Safety
- Agriculture-focused Organizations
All requests for charitable contribution are coordinated and administered by Medford Cooperative Administration, not our individual departments (e.g. Ag Services, C-Stores, Energy Services, Grocery Stores, Hardware Stores, IT Solutions).
Requests are reviewed on the 15th of each month. Please submit your request as early as possible and prior to the 15th of the month.
Requests must align with the aforementioned funding priorities.
Medford Cooperative only makes donations to entities and/or members of the Cooperative. If you and/or your organization are/is not currently a member, please contact us to apply today (free of charge).
If tax-exempt, organizations must provide proof of 501(c)3 tax-exempt status.
Incomplete requests or requests not on our ‘Donation form’ will not be considered.
Requests for events that have already occurred or items that have already been purchased will not be approved.
If your organization receives a cash donation, for tax purposes, we ask that you provide a formal acknowledgement letter to Medford Cooperative.
We do not fund organizations raising funds to donate to other organizations. We prefer to donate directly.
