Communities in Full Colour
February 22, 2021


Communities in Full Colour is a community-investment commitment that gives back to the places Co-op calls home. We are working to brighten up our communities by donating CO-OPĀ® Imagine Paint to the projects and initiatives that matter most to you.

See more details about the program below or stop by one of our local Homestead Co-op Home Centres in Carman, La Salle and MacGregor.

Scope of program

The Communities in Full Colour paint donation program is designed to provide local community organizations with free paint to be used towards local community improvements. The paint donation covers any interior, exterior, primer, stain or specialty coatings required. The program does NOT include applicators, surface preparation or repair products that might be required for a given project.

Who is eligible?

The Communities in Full Colour paint donation is available to registered charities, registered nonprofits, registered community groups, youth sport and recreation associations, and community improvement associations. It should be noted that all locations have limited funds available to allocate. 

Priority will be given to applications that:

  • Support projects located within the trading area of Homestead Co-op
  • Align with the charitable priorities of Homestead Co-op
  • Identify a solution to a community need

Projects ineligible for funding include ones that:

  • Support religious- or political-affiliated organizations
  • Do not align with the charitable priorities of Homestead Co-op
