Requests must be made formally using the PCC Community Grant application.
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.
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.
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.
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
Private clubs funded through membership fees
Sporting events or teams
Individuals/sponsorship of individuals
Organizations that permit the exclusion of a group based on their race/ethnicity, religion, sexuality or lifestyle
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.
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.
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.
