    Building Sustainable Solutions Through Partnerships and Capacity Building

Sharing expertise creates opportunities for learning, growth and collective success. That’s why we work in collaboration with a variety of organizations to convene leaders, deliver technical assistance, support capacity building, and share our three decades of experience and financial acumen. These networks are a key part of many local and national initiatives and have proven to shorten the distance to success by serving as a clearinghouse for ideas, innovation and learning opportunities. Sharing what works—and what doesn’t—helps level the learning curve for those committed to transforming communities.

The Co-op Innovation Award represents one part of our strategy to promote food, worker and housing co-ops. To date, we have provided over $80,000 in awards to support organizations who are helping to scale the cooperative model.
