Please understand that we are a co-op, and as such we return all of the profits to the farm families at the end of each year.
The generosity of the 1,000 farm-families who own Cabot and their interest in supporting the communities in which they live and where they sell products allows us to offer donations.
The resources available for support are limited. Preference is given to first time requests from organizations that provide the greatest impact on the fabric of the community.
Be sure your event or organization meets the following criteria:
If you have received a donation from our farmers before, please know that we have to limit consideration of requests from the same organization to once every 2 years so that we may help others in need.
Please note that while your request may meet all the above criteria, Cabot receives 100's of worthy applications each year, and unfortunately it's impossible to honor them all. Because we are a co-operative, our first priority is to the farm families. Requests that provide maximum exposure to the farmers and their products are given preference.
Does your organization work to make your community a better place? Do they assemble or collect at food banks during big drives? Do they build, clean, or clear neighborhood housing, gardens, playgrounds or beaches?
We want to help fuel busy volunteers and staff, no matter what they are doing to help make the world a better place. Any volunteer organization is open for consideration.
