About the People Fund

The People Fund is a charitable nonprofit organization that provides monetary grants to help those who can’t find or do not qualify for help through other community and charitable agencies. Since its incorporation in May 2002, Consolidated Cooperative and The People Fund have been able to grant over $1 million to neighbors and organizations.

The People Fund is proud of the positive impact it has had in increasing the security, safety, health-awareness and quality of life in our community. It has funded several local health and safety organizations, while also preparing and educating our community’s growing children by funding several local educational programs for students from elementary to college.

Grant decisions are made by the Consolidated Cooperative Foundation board of directors, which is independent of other Consolidated Cooperative boards and is composed of community leaders who volunteer their time to support the foundation and The People Fund.
