As this year draws to a close, the Cohousing Research Network (the research arm
of the Cohousing Association) is asking our community to help us continue to
support the growth of Cohousing. As a volunteer-run organization with no paid
staff, every dollar we raise goes directly towards projects and events. Even a
modest gift helps and you can donate through the Cohousing Association
click on the "Cohousing Research Network" radio button to earmark for our use.
We value collaboration, sharing and research!
Here are ways you can make an impact and what your gift would make possible:
$25-$50 gets Cohousing Research Network printed materials at conferences.
Some of volunteer steering committee attend and present at Cohousing and
related subject matter conferences. Your donation would cover printing costs so
that we can spread the word about Cohousing and provide requested materials.
$125 covers a year of web hosting and domain registration fees for
Our bibliography and online research discussion group are free and available to
all, hosting isn’t. A donation of $125 would cover one year of our hosting
costs, keep our researchers’ bibliography live on the web for all our visitors
and our online forum for research related conversations.
$500 sponsors our Web site’s phase one build-out to create a bibliography
We’ve engaged the services of a software developer and identified software to
help us turn our static bibliography into a fully searchable database. Your
$500 donation would go towards our phase one costs.
$1000 helps send one or more of our volunteer steering committee members to
National and Regional Cohousing conferences.
We've been lucky enough to send team members every year and we want to continue
doing so. We present and host day-long research intensives. We support the
Cohousing Association and movement. Your donation would assist in making our
research data and presentations be available to hundreds at those conferences.
Any amount will help sponsor any of the above!
Our steering committee, research and bibliography has informed existing and
forming Cohousing communities worldwide as well as hundreds of individuals,
including many researchers, looking to learn more about Cohousing. Donations
like yours keep our organization running, help us continue our research, and
share it with those who are seeking it.
If you choose to donate, you can do so at our donation page, which is managed
by the Cohousing Association. Donations to Cohousing Research Network are
