Community Investment
January 16, 2024

Our Co-op was built to serve and grow our community. That’s why we return our profits to our members and support the causes and programs that matter to you.

A strong social conscience has always been part of how your Co-op operates. Our business has been built on a foundation of community involvement and service. We run a strong, financially viable business that returns profits to our members and we invest in the communities in which we operate. We are an integral part of your hometown and care about and support the causes that matter to you and our communities.

Our communities' needs are diverse. We get it. We’ve designed our programs to help our local communities to thrive and enable organizations like yours to do what you do best for the betterment of our community.

Non-Profit Discount Program

Pembina West Co-op is proud to support organizations like yours that invest in our community. We are pleased to offer a discount to eligible organizations on a variety of purchases that support your organization’s events, programs, and fundraising efforts. The discount program supports programs and events that serve our local community and are not profit-generating. Examples may include sports teams, community associations/halls, community service organizations, and religious organizations. Learn more and apply online today.

Gift Card Fundraising

Pembina West Co-op’s Gift Card Fundraising Program helps local community groups and non-profits like yours raise funds to support activities and operations. Your supporters buy Co-op Gift cards from you for face value and get face value.
For every Co-op Gift Card you sell, your group keeps 5% of the total value to an annual maximum of $6,000 per fiscal year. Learn more and apply to run a Gift Card Fundraiser for your community group.

On-Site Fundraising Events

Pembina West Co-op is a proud community builder, and offers a variety of ways for your local group to raise funds for your programs and activities. Your organization can host a fundraiser BBQ at a Co-op location, we'll provide the use of our BBQ, a great high-traffic location, and supply all required food products at a discount. 

We also have the opportunity for your group to set up a table near the entrance to our Food Stores to get some face time with potential supporters. You can collect donations, sell tickets to your event or raffle, or sell your fundraising calendars or other promotional items. Please note that sale of food items or other duplication of in-store products is not permitted.
