Keep It Local Mayerthorpe
July 16, 2020

Our revamped Keep it Local Mayerthorpe Program has been an amazing success! This program donates 1% of your grocery purchase totals back to your favourite local community groups, providing up to $18,000 in annual support to our community partners.

We are excited that the simplicity of the new process meant that we were able to process these donations faster than ever, while making it more convenient than ever for both our local groups and their supporters. Gone are the days of collecting boxes full of receipts, the program now features a simple annual opt-in from both our charitable recipients and their supporters.

2022 Supporter Registration is now open

Don't see your cause listed? Let them know how to register for the program by sending them to this page. Organizations can register here. Once the organization has been reviewed by our program administrators, it will be added to the list for supporters to select. 

*Donations will be capped at $9,000 per semi-annual period across the entire program. This ensures that we can continue to provide the same level of support as previously given, while ensuring that the program remains sustainable. If 1% of eligible purchases by members in the program exceeds $9,000 in a semi-annual period, funds will be distributed proportionally based on the percentage of sales relating to each organization's supporters.

Calculations will be made by membership number based on patronage records of purchases made at the Mayerthorpe Co-op, similar to how individual members' equity allocations are calculated. No receipts need to be collected or submitted. Eligible purchases will not include lotto, tobacco, gift cards, and bottle deposits. Calculations will be made twice a fiscal year, with the first payment reflecting the first 28 weeks of our fiscal year and the second reflecting the last 24 weeks. Our 2022 fiscal year began January 30, 2022.
