Community Grant Program

Oryana Community Grant Program

Our Community Grant Program is a charitable giving program based on Cooperative Principle #7 which states: “While focusing on member needs, cooperatives work for the sustainable development of communities through policies and programs accepted by their members.” In each profitable year we have, Oryana has made a pledge to donate a portion of our end-of-year proceeds (pre-tax) to a non-profit organization in our community. As one of the benefits of becoming an owner of Oryana, member-owners have the opportunity to vote for one of the finalist organizations chosen by the grant board committee.

In 2013 Oryana member-owners awarded $5500 to ISLAND of Bellaire. The Institute for Sustainable Living, Art & Natural Design is a non-profit arts and ecology center dedicated to connecting people with nature, art and community.

Members are now able to vote for this year's finalists:

  1. T.C. Community Garden
  2. Northwest Michigan Invasive Species Network
  3. Food Rescue of Northern Michigan

If you are a current member, please go to Customer Service, get your ballot, fill it out, and place it in the ballot can. Your vote counts!
