Costco Wholesale’s primary charitable efforts focus on programs supporting children, education, and health and human services in the communities where we do business. Throughout the year, we receive a large number of requests from nonprofit organizations striving to make a positive impact, and we are thankful to be able to provide support to a variety of organizations and causes. While we would like to respond favourably to all requests, the needs are understandably far greater than our allocated resources and we are unable to accommodate them all.
Donation and Grant Eligibility Guidelines
To apply for Costco support, organizations must meet the following general requirements:
