Ocean Spray is not your typical company-
We’re proud to be an agricultural cooperative. Our Grower-Owners and employees recognize the importance of the communities in which we do business and are proud to give back where we can. Ocean Spray is committed to helping to grow and build healthy communities everywhere we do business. The places where we work and farm are an important part of our culture and we like to get involved! From Wisconsin to Texas, Massachusetts or Pennsylvania, you’ll find us involved in local events. Our charitable giving is focused on providing resources and support to organizations in our local communities.
Ocean Spray’s Community Fund
Like the fruit we grow and sell, Ocean Spray has strong roots in the communities where we work. The Ocean Spray Community Fund provides resources and support to organizations that improve the quality of life in the communities where we live and do business. The Community Fund distributes grants up to $5,000 in the following regions: Massachusetts, Wisconsin, New Jersey, Washington, Oregon, Florida, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Nevada as well as British Columbia and Eastern Canada (Defined as Quebec, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick). With these resources and the help of volunteer efforts, we fulfill the Fund’s mission to serve the many places we call home.
In some cases, these grants will be accompanied by a product donation and Ocean Spray volunteer support. Organizations interested in applying for the grants must have 501c3 status and apply using the online application (found below). The 2018 application period will run from April 23rd – June 15th, 2018. All applications will be reviewed by our committee which is made up of both employees and Grower-Owners. Grant recipients will be notified in August 2018. All organizations and projects consent to being highlighted on Ocean Spray’s website and social media channels.
Ocean Spray may also support organizations that aid families and communities in times of critical need through blood drives, disaster relief and other forms of assistance. The Ocean Spray Corporate Giving Committee reviews each request on a case-by-case basis.
