Country Fair annually gives to a variety of local charities. These donations range from youth sports team sponsorship to major non-profit organizational sponsorship. With so many deserving non-profits in our hometown community, Country Fair wanted to make a larger impact. The Country Fair Cares program was created to assist 501 c-3 non-profit organizations with a pooled funding formula.
Country Fair’s leadership selected five non-profit organizations to become 2020 Country Fair Cares (CFC) partners. These partners include The National Alliance on Mental Illness of Erie County (NAMI), Mercy Center for Women, Erie Philharmonic, St. Martin Center and Erie Animal Network.
2¢ of every gallon of gasoline sold at the designated “CFC Charity Pump” will be allocated to the CFC program. Funds will be dispersed equally to each charity.
The program runs from May 1-October 31, 2020, at 38 Erie county Country Fair locations.
Non-Profits who wish to apply to be a CFC partner in 2021 may submit an application which can be downloaded below. The deadline to apply is October 15, 2020.
