There are 6 ways you can support what we're doing:
1. Become a Member-Owner
Invest in the co-op today as member-owner. As an owner, you get financial and governance rights. You can help shape the direction and priorities and get involved in management at any level.
Supporters and Artisans: Learn More about Membership >>>
2. Shop the Marketplace & Our Fundraiser
Shopping on our marketplace supports our artisans directly and encourages all the members of our cooperative. Plus: you get really cool handmade goods!
The "Mutual Aid" Fundraiser is a great place to start: buy handmade items specially crafted by our artisans with Artisans Co-op branding, colors, logo, or mascot. Your fundraiser purchases connect you with an artisan and support their careers (artisans decide the donation amount) AND donate funds to the co-op: it's a win-win-win!
3. Spread the Word
- Share what we're doing with one potential artisan or supporter you know.
- Hang one of our artisan-designed flyers in your neighborhood
- Read our grassroots campaign post for more fun ways you can help spread the word today
4. Buy a Gift Card
A gift card purchase today will help an artisan tomorrow, and the gift recipient will get to learn all about Artisans Cooperative, too!
Our member voted: we are "bootstrapping" it ourselves through sweat equity. We are managed by unpaid member-owners and operating on sales, small donations and membership investments. Donations help us pay for start-up expenses like domain hosting, email programs, and start-up clinics. We are not a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization - we are a member-owned business, and donations may not be tax-deductible. We cannot provide tax advice.
- Donate directly to Artisans Cooperative on Ko-fi or PayPal
- Payment options for checks, member investment buy-ins, and more.
