At Outpost, we envision an ideal world where our community has access to organically and locally produced goods, is educated about choices that impact the environment, and supports a locally-based economy.

 

Outpost Community Partners is one way we strive to achieve this vision.

 

Every year four locally-based non-profit organizations are given the opportunity to partner with Outpost in order to build greater community awareness of the group and also raise much needed funds. Each organization will receive a $3000 donation from Outpost, one-fourth of the earned interest from Outpost’s Co-op Community Fund and opportunities to partner with Outpost on additional fundraising events.
