You can make a real difference in the success of our local co-op economy by helping us provide the kind of practical support workers need to operate a successful cooperative.
We have an urgent need for funding
to support early-stage co-ops.
The initial phases of a co-op development project lay the foundation of strong relationships, a thorough understanding of the industry, and investment in education and training for the future co-op members. The co-ops that ask for our support are most often from immigrant and BIPOC communities, women or non-binary, or other workers that find themselves shut off from the opportunities given to those more privileged. These are the communities that benefit most from early stage co-op support, and this work is the hardest to obtain funding for.
Please consider a one-time or recurring donation so that we can support cooperators in the critical early stages of their development.
