MOCO is committed to community!

An important part of MOCO’s mission is to strengthen our community – socially, environmentally, and economically.

One of the ways in which we support Lamoille County non-profit organizations, is through our program;

‘Round It Up for Change’.

Here’s how the program works:

Staff members will offer MOCO shoppers the option to round up their purchases to the nearest dollar, every time they check out. At the end of the collection period, those funds are donated to the chosen nonprofit.

Criteria to apply:

Organization must be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit registered in Lamoille County. Organization’s work must align with MOCO’s mission.

(Please note that MOCO does not donate to individuals, partisan organizations or organizations that advance a particular religious view.)

Application Process:

The Round It Up For Change calendar year runs from Dec 1 – Nov 30. Each collection period runs for two months: December 1 – January 31; Feb 1 – March 31; April 1 – May 31; June 1 – July 31; August 1 – September 30; October 1 – November 30.

Due to Covid-19, modifications have been made to the timeline this year (see below) and will continue into 2021. In order to return to the calendar year schedule, five recipients will be chosen for the new year.

All five recipients for the program are chosen via voting by MOCO members at the annual meeting and through absentee voting opportunities at MOCO.

MOCO’s responsibility is to raise awareness of the sponsored organization: Information on nonprofit recipient will be provided on the in-store bulletin board, on signage at the point of sale, on our website and in the “MOCO Beet” eNewsletter.
