Thinking Outside of the Box
T wice now we have now experienced community members that wanted to support CohoUS, but the line item had not made it through their community's budget process, so the members became inventive! On the general meeting agenda there was a note to request for people to bring their checkbooks. Once gathered together, they passed around pens and many chose to support the association and wrote a check in the amount of $25. Then someone bundled them up and mailed them to CohoUS (4710 16th St Boulder, CO 80304). If a community donation to CohoUS is not in your budget, please consider this option!

We Want You Join the Cohousing Team!
T he “Fun”draising AKA ”Friend” Raising Committee is a great place to connect.
This can be fun, you get to talk to the folks who are most invested in Cohousing about what works for them and help strengthen the work for the organization. There are roles for “people “ types, administrative types, database types, and all-around thoughtful people. Fundraising Committee. Works with the executive director and Board to ensure there is a strategic fundraising plan. Members serve as “point people” on specific fundraising activities, with a focus on fundraising from communities, individuals or businesses.

"Party Planning" AKA Events Committee is a great way to help spread the word.
Cohousing conferences are not just one big party but also a fantastic way to gain knowledge and meet other cohousers; this takes some planning and we'd love to have your ideas. Help us create fresh updated marketing materials for National Cohousing Open House Day. If you are interested in recruiting cohousing professionals for WebChats or brainstorming topics, we could use your assistance.

Committees typically meet once a month for an hour via ZOOM video conference. Though appreciated, no experience needed, just your enthusiasm! Contact Karin at karincohous@gmail.com
