PCC Community Grant recipient guidelines

  1. All requests must be faxed, mailed directly to PCC or submitted using our online application.
  2. Requests must be made formally using the PCC Community Grant application.
  3. Organizations awarded a PCC Community Grant will be ineligible to receive another grant for the next five years. Organizations awarded a grant will be ineligible for further donations from PCC Natural Markets for 12 months following the grant donation.
  4. Organizations must be located within a five-mile radius of one of our stores, and the efforts of your organization must focus on our local community.
  5. The recipient must be a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Proof of your 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status is required. Programs that focus on improving the quality of life of our community — particularly as it relates to health, nutrition education, and environmental preservation — are encouraged to apply.
  6. Requests from organizations who identify as any of the following will not be considered by PCC:
    • Political or religious groups
    • Service clubs or fraternal organizations
    • Third-party fundraising
    • Private clubs funded through membership fees
    • Sporting events or teams
    • Scholarships
    • Individuals/sponsorship of individuals
    • Organizations that permit the exclusion of a group based on their race/ethnicity, religion, sexuality or lifestyle
  7. Multiple applications for a grant will not increase chances of selection. All applications will be reviewed equitably and not based on a first-come, first-served basis.
  8. Applications are reviewed quarterly; applications will be kept on file for one year from the date received. After one year, a nonprofit who has not been chosen may once again reapply for the grant.
  9. Organizations that receive a grant understand PCC Natural Markets may write a story about the grant to share in our publications and/or social media platforms.
  10. Only awarded recipients will be notified.
