Mariposa Food Co-op provides donations in support of organizations striving to create a better community. Donations are typically provided in the form of Co-op gift cards, which can be used to purchase goods for your event, such as door prizes or auction items. Mariposa will consider requests for event sponsorship ads (program books, etc.)

Mariposa requests that you use our name and logo in your publicity for the event whenever possible (we can provide logo to use). In addition, we’d like a copy of your publicity materials that mention Mariposa for our records.

Please review the donations eligibility requirements and guidelines below before submitting a request.
