Sponsorships & Donations

To do the great work that they do, many organizations look to the corporate community for support. We all have a responsibility to step up for our community. Since 1977, we’ve sponsored or donated to thousands of non-profit organizations and charities.
We value the relationships we share with our communities. We provide fresh food, supplies, funds and people to causes large and small, choosing to support community needs in our immediate neighbourhoods first.  In short, we are always there. Our local relationships are often built with groups that share the Thrifty Foods purpose of helping our communities to Eat Better, Feel Better and Do Better.

Who can apply?

We wish we could support everyone who has a great idea or community-minded project! To make our sharing of dollars fair and to make sure those dollars stretch as far as possible in our communities, we only consider sponsorship and donation requests made by a Registered Canadian Charity or Registered BC Society. And, applicant organizations must operate in a community with a Thrifty Foods location. For all the fine print on eligibility, check out our guidelines.

How to apply?

We do our very best to respond to requests quickly. As you can imagine, we receive a lot (a lot!) of requests. Therefore, please give us as much time as possible to respond to your request (at least four weeks). And, remember that, no matter how fantastic your organization and how amazing your project or event, we can’t support you unless you give us all of the necessary details. Make sure you fill out the online application fully, or we may end up saying ‘sorry, no’ to the very best of ideas simply because we don’t have the information we need.
