Apply to be a Co-op local cause


To apply to be a Co-op cause you must have a project or event in mind that:

  • takes place in the UK or Isle of Man
  • doesn't have religious or political aims (although you can still apply if you're a religious organisation)
  • meets the Co-op's values
  • takes place or will still be running after October 2018
  • benefits your local community

We'll give preference to projects run by small, local organisations.

You can't use money from the fund solely to pay for staff salaries or general running costs, or to make a donation to another organisation.

If you're successful

We'll let you know if you've been selected in October and you can start promoting your cause to our members from November.

You'll be paid a share of the funding every 3 months, with the first payment at the end of January 2018 and the last in October 2018.
