Community

At Natural Grocers, we don't really consider ourselves a grocery chain. We're more of a corner grocer -- the one who knows you by your first name when you enter the store and even helps you carry your groceries out to your car. And we think it's really important for a business to give back to its community. That's why we support the efforts of non-profit groups in our communities who are involved in the betterment of health and the environment.

 

We appreciate the work you're doing for others and we're interested in partnering with you to further help our communities. Please select the type of partnership below that you're interested in and let us know more about your mission so we can help you succeed. And, most importantly, thanks for all you do!

 


 

PLEASE NOTE: We have met our donation budget for 2014 and are no longer accepting applications for event donations this year. Please contact us again in January 2015. Thank you for considering a partnership with Natural Grocers!
