These resources are compiled by the Sustainable Economies Law Center, a worker-directed 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides legal support, education, and funding to deeply participatory organizations we believe are essential to economic transformation. We have cultivated expertise in several legal areas that affect how funding flows to democratic organizations. Since 2016, we have received dozens of grants and donations that we’ve used to fund six cooperatives. In this Toolkit, we share what we’ve learned and what we’ve practiced.
It is largely due to lack of legal understanding that many funders are unwilling to fund cooperatives and other projects for economic democracy. We hope this Toolkit can change that! Knowledge is power! Click here to find the toolkit or the image below.
