“At the core of cooperatives is slow, steady, and meaningful change. It happens with open minds and hearts one day at time, step by step, with diligence, focus and commitment. At the heart of the work is a building of mutual respect for each participant, moving at the speed of trust to accomplish our community’s greatest social challenges. Our donors and supporters understand the impact and social good that cooperatives are designed to create and have the opportunity to provide our communities, our nation and our world. They know we can’t make the change without them. They trust that we are as committed as they are passionate about building a better world through the cooperative business model, and we are honored to be in partnership with people that care as much as we do.”
