The Local community fund give
1% for our community.
This is our way of giving back to local communities
As a member, every time you shop at Co-op, 1% of what you spend on selected own-brand products and services goes to the Co-op Local Community Fund.
Co-op members have helped raise over £14 million for local causes.
This money, together with money from carrier bag sales, supports projects close to where you live.
Select your cause
If you’re a member you can choose a local cause you want your 1% to go to.

How the fund works
Every time our members buy Co‑op branded products and services, from buying a loaf of bread to planning a funeral, 1% of their spend goes to a local cause, like yours.
For the 6 months you’re part of the fund the money builds up. Throughout the 6 months, members can choose which cause their contribution goes to.
You’ll receive your funding at the end, if members don’t choose a cause during the 6 months we’ll share the contribution they’ve built up equally between the causes in their community.
