New Vision Coop Charitable Donation Guidelines and Procedures
New Vision Coop members support building strong communities where our members and employees live.

The New Vision Coop Board of Directors evaluates and awards applications for donation requests that:

Past awards have been given to the FFA for building improvements and education, 4H, local food banks, various fire and rescue departments, park improvements, YMCA, veteran facilities and memorials.
We are proud of our support of community philanthropy but recognize that it is not possible to fund every request.
