Community Involvement

Community Involvement Matters to Us. Supporting the communities where we work and live is a key part of our mission at Plum Market. The most common way in which we show that support is by donating Plum Cards or Gift Baskets for auctions or use at special events.

A profound commitment to the community is simply part of who we are at Plum Market. However, due to the volume of requests that we receive, we cannot grant every request. So that we may support the community as fully as we can, each approved organization will be limited to one donation per calendar year. Past support is not a guarantee of future support.


We also participate in Educational Scrip Programs.

Plum Market takes pride in being a good neighbor and supporting the local communities where we work and live.
These are some local organizations with whom we’ve partnered for support:

  • Local Public & Private Schools & Colleges
  • Friendship Circle
  • Karmanos Cancer Institute
  • Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center
  • Children’s Leukemia Foundation
  • Cranbrook House

Educational Scrip Program

At Plum Market we give back to the community in many ways, from product donations, to our community sponsorships and Scrip through Great Lakes Scrip Center.

Plum Market gift cards are available from Great Lakes Scrip Center. Qualifying schools and non-profits can purchase Plum Market gift cards at a 3% discount. To set up a program or purchase cards, simply fill out an enrollment form.
