Co-ops for Community Day

Each spring, our member-owners nominate community organizations to participate in our Co-ops for Community Day program. Organizations with the most nominations appear on the ballot during our annual Board elections, and Rising Tide member-owners vote to determine which 10 local nonprofit organizations will be the recipients during the upcoming year beginning in August.

In this program, Rising Tide donates .5% of our Wednesday sales to a different local organization each month. Rising Tide’s Community Investment Fund is the donation recipient in November and December every year.

Below are the organizations chosen through July 2015:

September 2014: Lincoln County Animal Shelter

October 2014: Community Housing Improvement Project, Inc. (CHIP)

January 2015: Damariscotta River Association

February 2015: Pemaquid Watershed Association

March 2015: Community Energy Fund of Lincoln County

April 2015: New Hope for Women

May 2015: Healthy Kids
