About the ONE Prize
ONE Prize is a customer appreciation program and community fund started by River Market and Donald’s Market. When Donald’s Market Goodness Rewards (NW) members shop at Donald’s, the grocery store contributes 1% of every dollar spent to the ONE Prize fund.
The intent of the ONE Prize is to kick-start new projects or strengthen existing ones that contributes positively to living, working, or playing in our city. If you have a project idea, the Call for Proposals is announced every Spring.
How is the ONE Prize awarded?
This year, Goodness Rewards (NW) members collectively raised $6000. In mid April, the proposals received will be shortlisted by a jury for final voting by Goodness Rewards (NW) members. Goodness Rewards (NW) members will vote for their favourite projects through online ballots. Only members who signed up before December 31, 2017 will receive a ballot to vote because it is their shopping dollars from the year that contributed to the annual fund.
How do I sign up and contribute to next year’s ONE Prize fund?
