We encourage all cohousing groups and communities to consider an annual gift of support to Coho/US. Your community’s gift will help us serve you and others as we nurture the growth of cohousing and help our communities thrive
Engaging your members in supporting Coho/US strengthens our movement. Please consider sharing with your members our Coho/US Overview and Strategic Goals.
Why Support Coho/US?
- You want to promote cohousing across the nation.
- You want your community to be recognized as a supporter of cohousing.
- You want to support Coho/US as a vehicle for recruiting community members, finding resources and attending conferences, and connecting with the cohousing world.
