Community Donations

Our Community Donation program provides gift cards to St. Paul-based registered non-profits. These gift cards may be used to purchase food for meetings and events, or used as event auction giveaways.

Each year, we donate over 200 gift cards to local non-profit organizations, totaling $6,000 on average. Recent Community Donation program recipients include:

When considering a potential donation, Mississippi Market looks at the following criteria:

  • Is the organization a registered non-profit?
  • Is the organization within St. Paul or the surrounding community?
  • When has the organization last received a donation from Mississippi Market?  Donations are generally granted to organizations a maximum of twice during the co-op’s fiscal year (July-June).
