Applying for Change for Change

Thank you for your interest in PFC's Change for Change program!

Every time you shop at PFC, a friendly PFC cashier asks if you'd like to round up your purchase to the nearest dollar. When you round up, all of your change goes toward the Change for Change organization for that month. 

Many people within PFC are involved in the selection of Change for Change recipients. Recipients are currently selected three months at a time, with one organization receiving Change for Change donations for one month.

PFC's Antiracism Transformation Team has developed some criteria for Change for Change selection, including:

  • alignment with PFC Ends
  • antiracist and anti-oppressive values
  • priority given to organizations for and by People of Color
  • priority given to those located in or serving the Northside and/or Eastside neighborhoods in Kalamazoo
  • priority given to organizations with smaller budgets, in which donations through Change for Change may have a higher impact

If you meet the above criteria, please email with the following information:

  • Your organization's name and mission
  • What kind of work does your organization do in the community?
  • How does your organization's work complement PFC's Ends of creating access for all to food that is healthy for people, land, and ecomony?
  • How would your organization benefit from donations from Change for Change?
  • Contact information for a representative from your organization. Having someone from your organization attend a staff meeting at PFC is very helpful in informing staff about your organization so we can answer questions from shoppers when it's time to round up.

The deadline for consideration for January, February, and March 2020 is December 8.
