SEED: Seward Co-op's Donation Program

April SEED recipient: We Win Institute

SEED donations will support the efforts of We Win Institute, which instills pride, confidence, and academic, as well as, social skills in children by giving them knowledge and experiences that honor and celebrate their cultural roots.

So far this month, 22,987 customers have donated $10,179 to We Win Institute!


Throughout our 42-year history, Seward Co-op has been committed to giving back to our community. In 2011, we introduced a new way for customers to deliver on this commitment.

SEED is focused on organizations that share our commitment to a healthy community and/or support our P6 initiative — products that are local, cooperatively-owned/non-profit, and small farmer/producer. Make charitable donations on an ongoing basis, during your transactions at the register, by rounding up your total to the nearest dollar or adding whatever amount you'd like to donate.
