Community Choice Voting 2024
Seward Co-op owners and customers are invited to select four of twelve 2024 SEED recipients. Selection of SEED recipients is led entirely by a committee of co-op staff – front end cashiers and staff from our Equity and Community Engagement department. This grant committee takes great care to evaluate all applications and selects eight of the twelve recipients for the upcoming year. Those eight become our Staff Pick SEED recipients.
The committee also nominates eight organizations to be considered by community members, all of which will receive a $1,000 grant through the Seward Community Fund, whether or not they are ultimately selected as a SEED recipient. The top four winners of those organizations become Community Choice SEED recipients.
Learn about the Community Choice finalists below, and cast your vote for your top four organizations. Then, join us at our Annual Owner Meeting on Tuesday, Oct 24 as we announce the 2024 grant recipients, including the results of the SEED Community Choice vote and Board of Directors Election.
