In 2019 we delivered £17m* to over 4,000 local causes, thanks to our members.
When Co-op members shop with us, 1% of what they spend on selected Co-op branded products and services goes to support local causes through our Local Community Fund. Members can choose a local cause that they want their 1%** to support.

Become a Co-op Member
To get involved in the next Big Co-op Payout, sign up to become a member for £1 and choose a local cause to support in your community.
You'll also get 5% of what you spend on selected Co-op branded products and services back to spend on your next shop.
How the Local Community Fund works
Every time our members shop at Co-op, 1% of what they spend on Co-op branded products helps to fund community projects in their local area.
Members can select which cause their 1%** goes to, so the more members that pick your project, the more money you'll get.
We choose new causes for our communities every 12 months.
