Does your co-op need to raise more money? Is your co-op located in a lower-resourced community? Traditionally more resilient than other businesses during economically challenging times, cooperatives can be a great support to their communities in times of political and economic uncertainty. Yet, in order to do so, co-ops need to have sufficient money in the bank. Our panelists have recent experience with a variety of funding sources that could be just the ticket for your project; two of their co-ops are located in lower-income communities. What are the pros and cons of grants? Member equity? Member loans? Direct Public Offerings (DPOs)? Come with your questions and we’ll see if we can provide answers.
