Founding Member-Owner Bonuses
Did you know that founding member-owners of the co-op receive even more benefits than your regular ol' MoCo Member-Owners? If you become a member before our store opens in August, you, too, will receive the following bonus benefits:
- An invitation to our Founder's Event the night before our Grand Opening
- 2% discount in-store for the first year
- A MoCo mug with complimentary brewed coffee for an entire year!
- Patronage* after MoCo has been up and running for a full year
*Each year, if the Board determines there are available profits to circulate to member-owners, you'll be sent a check based on the percentage of sales you contributed throughout the year. You'll be sent a MoCo Loyalty Card soon to swipe each time you make purchases in the store so we can track your patronage percentage. The Board will review profits annually and determine patronage each year based on the operational needs of the Co-op.
There are so many great local businesses that are supportive of MoCo's mission. In fact, they are so supportive that as incentive to join MoCo that they offer discounts or benefits to all MoCo members! We love our neighbors and hope you will show them your appreciation by giving them your business!

The MoCo Membership Assistance Fund is a pool of funds dedicated to increasing food access in the Lamoille Valley region by subsidizing co-op membership for low-income members. It extends the full benefits of co-op membership to those who cannot otherwise afford the $200 member capital requirement. The funding has come from co-op members who have donated to the program.
The Fund helps MoCo reach its goal of ensuring that the co-op is “accessible to all.”
how much will it cost?
The cost to you will be $100.00, which can be paid monthly in increments as low as $10.00. We are currently offering a limited number of assisted memberships. When we receive more donations to this program we will open it up to more people.
who is eligible for assistance?
Anyone who cannot afford to pay the $200.00! We will not ask any questions, but are offering this on a good faith basis. You alone determine whether you need the support of this program to become a member-owner. We also ask if your financial situation changes in a way that allows you to make more partial or full payments that you do so. This will enable the pool of funds to be spread more widely among members in need. Requests for membership assistance is for new members only.
how can others help?
Members, shoppers, neighbors and local businesses and institutions are encouraged to contribute in any amount. The larger the fund, the more we will be able to do outreach and expand co-op membership to the populations who stand to benefit most from access to nutritious foods, community engagement, and cooperative business ownership.
