The products, leadership, advocacy and stories available through your membership with Land O'Lakes, Inc.
Land O'Lakes and our member-owners are committed to serving the many communities where we live and work through volunteerism, direct grants and matching gifts.
MEMBER CO-OP MATCH
The Member Co-op Match Program matches dollar-for-dollar the cash donation of member cooperatives, thus doubling the funds available for hometown projects. By matching funds for projects selected and funded by member cooperatives, the Land O'Lakes Foundation leverages local funding efforts and ensures community support for programs. To participate, member cooperatives should make a donation to an eligible organization then submit a matching application request.
DIRECT MEMBER MATCH & DONATIONS
The Direct Member Match Program helps maximize the charitable contributions in member communities. Similar to the Member Co-op Match Program, the Direct Member Match Program matches dollar-for-dollar the cash donations made by member producers (up to $500), doubling the funds available for hometown projects aimed at alleviating hunger, supporting education and building communities. To participate, members should make a donation to an eligible organization then submit a matching application request.
Direct member donations may be made on behalf of a member to qualifying tax exempt 501(c)(3) organizations in the form of dollars or a Land O’Lakes dairy product donation. Donations may only be used in cases where Direct Member Matches are not applicable. Complete and submit an application below with the requested amount for review. Approval or denial notifications will be communicated via email. Please allow 4-6 weeks response time on all donation requests.
The Region Grants is a grassroots program developed specifically for selected Land O’Lakes dairy communities in the Mid-Atlantic and West regions. The program works to improve quality of life through donations to valuable projects and charitable endeavors recommended by our dairy-member leaders. Community organizations applying for grants may be eligible for donations of $500 to $5,000 for local projects and programs.
DIRECT MEMBER SCHOLARSHIP
The Direct Member Scholarship program is open to all children and grandchildren of Land O’Lakes’ direct producer (Class B and D) members. The program awards three scholarships of $5,000 each to members’ children or grandchildren in any region. Applicants should be high school seniors entering either a 2 or 4-year school.
MATCHING GIFTS TO EDUCATION
The Matching Gifts to Education Program offers eligible donors the opportunity to extend Land O'Lakes giving to educational institutions throughout the country. We encourage our employees, board members and Leadership Council members to act as leaders, involving themselves in the financial support of worthy educational institutions and public broadcasting stations across the United States. Contributions made through this program are matched dollar for dollar by Land O'Lakes Foundation.
