What types of nonprofits does Lucky’s Market partner with?
Through Lucky’s Market’s values of Passion, Integrity and Community, our Community Impact Program is dedicated to improving the quality of life in our communities where we live and work. We support local non-profit organizations that address vital community needs within our four areas of focus: Healthy Communities, Youth & Education, Sustainability, and Resilience
Lucky’s Market partners with 501c3 non-profit organizations that create a direct & measurable community impact. Though we’d love to help everyone, please note that you must be a 501c3 verified non-profit doing work within our aforementioned areas of focus. We do not fund international focused organizations; political or religious organizations, workshops, conventions, or conferences; foundations who allocate funds to other organizations; schools without 501c3 PTO/A’s; or individuals for any reason.
Can Lucky’s Market donate food and drinks for our upcoming event?
We no longer have the capacity to order product; however, we donate gift cards to nonprofits (that meet the criteria above) on a rolling basis. If you’re a nonprofit that would like a gift card to purchase product for an upcoming event, please fill out an application at least 5 weeks in advance.
Can Lucky’s Market sponsor my event?
We proudly partner with many organizations, but we don’t sponsor events themselves. Rather, we aim to fund tangible, measurable outcomes that directly support those who live in the communities we serve.

Does Lucky’s Market offer a discount gift card program for fundraising purposes?
You bet we do! Nonprofit organizations may purchase Lucky’s Market gift cards at a 7% discount. The nonprofit may then sell the cards at face value, retaining the 7%. There is a $100 minimum card purchase. Please, fill out an online application and include the amount of your gift card order, along with the number and increments ($25 cards, $50 cards and $100 cards) you would like. The store will contact you when your cards have arrived.
Does Lucky’s Market offer a volunteering program for staff?
We sure do! Our team members accrue paid volunteers hours through our G.I.V.E. program that they may use for volunteering at a nonprofit of their choice. If your nonprofit organization is interested in Lucky’s Market team members volunteering, please contact your local store to share information on volunteer opportunities.
We are a for-profit business working with non-profits. Can you support our next event?
We appreciate your interest, but unfortunately we require our partners to have 501(C)3 IRS documentation. If your nonprofit partners would like to apply for support, please have them fill out an online application.
Why does Lucky’s Market need so much documentation from a nonprofit?
We require a 501(C)3 IRS Determination Letter, in addition to a W-9 to be considered for a partnership. This is how our Community Impact Team verifies nonprofit eligibility and ensures we have proper methods for funding. We focus on four different areas of impact, and prior to submitting an online application, it is the nonprofit’s responsibility to determine whether the organization meets the guidelines and funding priorities for Lucky’s Community Impact Program.
