Every month, La Montañita sponsors a local community-based organization through our Donate-a-Dime bag program. When you bring your own bag, you reduce your carbon footprint, and we’ll donate a dime to a worthy organization! It all adds up.

If your organization would like to participate in this program, please send the following information to Robin Seydel at proof of 501c3 status, a short description of your organization’s mission and work, a short description of how the money will be used, and complete contact information for the organization. Selected organizations are placed on a waiting list for future months. Recipient organizations are announced on a seasonal basis. Be aware, the waiting list is extensive, so sign up soon.
