Giving Back

     As a local, family-owned business, Kowalski's Markets have been active in the communities we serve and are always excited to partner with you in your fundraising efforts. We've literally tried hundreds of different programs over the years and have settled on the following programs to help local organizations with their fundraising needs:

Gift Cards

We offer nonprofits a discount on our gift cards based on the volume of cards purchased. The nonrofit then sells the gift cards at face value and keeps the difference. This program has been very successful with churches, sports organizations and clubs.

Group Fundraisers

Many teams or youth groups have become "carry-outs for a day" at their local Kowalski's Markets. The program is simple: we make a donation to your nonprofit organization when your group comes in and carries out groceries for a few hours.

Your nonprofit can take advantage of any of these opportunities by contacting the store manager at the Kowalski's Market in your community.

Supporting The Food Shelf

We've partnered with Second Harvest Food Shelf to make sure all of our day-old product ends up in the hands of those in need.

Groceries for Good Causes

We're proud of the fact that over a half million dollars has been donated to local charities through this program. We make a donation to your non-profit based on the amount of receipts placed in your charity's box at the front of the store. Contact your store manager to have a box allocated to your nonprofit. You'll get a check each quarter.

Supporting The Arts

Your music group can perform in our stores and receive a monetary donation.

We look forward to supporting the many organizations throughout the community and thank you for shopping at Kowalski's Market.
