At Outpost, we envision an ideal world where our community has access to organically and locally produced goods, is educated about choices that impact the environment and supports a locally-based economy.

Outpost Community Partners is one way we strive to achieve this vision.

Every year four locally-based non-profit organizations are given the opportunity to partner with Outpost in order to build greater community awareness of the group and also raise much needed funds. Each organization will receive a $3000 donation from Outpost, one-fourth of the earned interest from Outpost’s Co-op Community Fund and an opportunity to partner with Outpost on an additional fundraising event.



Fall 2016: Centro Hispano Milwaukee

In an ideal world…"The community would be strong and vibrant and self-sustaining. There would be equity and support for all community members. Economic self-sufficiency and health and food disparities would no longer exist."

Director of Adult Education
