Community Giving

Donation Guidelines

The Big Carrot is committed to contributing to our neighbourhood. We are proud to donate a percentage of our annual profits back to the community. We support local non-profit organizations that provide on-going services within our community and whose goals are consistent with The Big Carrot mission statement.

We support groups and organizations that promote:

Co-operative Development, Organic Agriculture, Community Projects, Environmental Preservation, Healthy Food Programs

If your non-profit organization is seeking a donation, please submit your donation request on letterhead, describing your organization, goal of your project and how a donation from us can benefit your project. We limit one donation request per organization in any calendar year. Unfortunately we are unable to support individual causes and individuals soliciting pledges or holding fund raising events on behalf of a charity. Although we consider most requests for support very worthy, not all can be fulfilled.

In Kind Donations

Fund raising local elementary schools and community groups who would like to request food products, raffle prizes, Big Carrot gift cards or silent auction items, should submit donation requests at least 4 weeks in advance. Please provide all pertinent information on your organizations letterhead including organization, address, date & time, reason for the fund raising event, approximate attendance, and contact information.


Please submit your information package at least 2 months in advance.

All Donation requests must be dropped off at our customer service desk, mailed or emailed. We will contact you upon review of your submission. Requests by phone or fax will not be accepted.
