Be Part of CDF’s Work to Create Economic Opportunities Through Co-ops this #GivingTuesday


Donate through CDF’s fundraiser on Facebook to double your gift!

A global day for giving back since 2012, #GivingTuesday has become the kick-off to the charitable season after a weekend of shopping events. Last year, donors from more than 150 countries gave $274 million for nonprofits.

The Cooperative Development Foundation (CDF) is kicking off its end-of-year fundraising campaign by participating in #GivingTuesday. As you plan your own holiday giving, consider supporting your cooperative values with a donation to CDF on Tuesday, November 27.

Your contributions make CDF’s critical work to improve economic opportunities for everyone by promoting and developing cooperatives possible.

This year alone, CDF has:

  • facilitated a $180,000 donation to cooperatives in Puerto Rico recovering from Hurricane Maria
  • given over $35,000 in grants to food co-ops through the Bowers Fund
  • sent 25 individuals to the Consumer Cooperative Management Association (CCMA) Conference on scholarships from the Bowers Fund
  • hosted 19 cooperative leaders and scholars from across the U.S. at the 2018 Co-op IMPACT Conference
  • hosted the 3rd Annual National Homecare Cooperative Conference, where 44 cooperators were able to attend on scholarship.

This year, Facebook and Paypal are partnering to double your donation, matching a total of $7 million in donations made on Facebook to eligible U.S.-based 501(c)(3) nonprofits. Donate now through CDF’s Facebook fundraiser or start your own.
