IGA Community Chest

There’s a place where your groceries help support local causes on your doorstep. Your local IGA.

Every day across the country IGA Community Chest raises funds to support local communities, charities, and worthwhile causes. It could be in response to a major event like floods or bush fires or something as simple as new soccer balls for the local under 8’s.

With your help, every year we are able to support over 1,200 local causes close to our hearts and since 2010, we have made over 25,000 donations that have made a real difference in our local communities.
