Fairplay is an independently owned, full service grocery store.  Not only do we value our customers, we value the communities we operate in as well.  We want our communities to thrive and we are honored to contribute to/ support non-profit, 501(c)(3) organizations whose mission fits the following focus areas:

Hunger Relief

Fairplay believes that hunger relief should be a number one priority in every community.  The bulk of our donation budget will be used to support organizations providing hunger relief.

Homeless/Women & Children Shelters

Fairplay also believes in supporting organizations that provide shelter and safety to the members of our communities.


Educating our youth plays a vital role in creating a thriving community.  Fairplay believes in a strong educational system.  We will donate to educational programs specific to the advancement of knowledge.

Fairplay does not generally support:

Individual/Team Fundraising

Athletic programs

School Field Trips

Parties (of any kind), ceremonies or memorials


Requests on behalf of another organization

Advertising requests

Fraternal or labor organizations

Lobbying or political initiatives

No donation request will be considered without a specific explanation of what our donation will be supporting, without  your most recent 501(c)(3), without  a signed and dated IRS W-9, or that falls outside of our focus area.  ALL donation requests must be received at least 30 days in advance.

All donations requests must be submitted to donations@fairplayfoods.com or faxed to 773-299-1508.

Like every organization, we have limited funds and are unable to fulfill every request.  In order to assist as many organizations within the community as possible, we can only send support to an organization once per calendar year.  If your request is approved, you will be notified thru email.  Due to the high volume of requests, we will not respond to telephone inquiries regarding request approval.
