CDF’s Co-op Disaster Recovery Fund aids cooperatives and members impacted by disasters and promotes co-op enterprise in recovering areas. Contributions to the fund come from cooperative members and organizations across the United States.
This money is not for immediate relief as there are many organizations for that purpose. This money is to help cooperators rebuild their lives, to help cooperatives re-open to serve their members, and to promote cooperatives as a tool for rebuilding and economic development. CDF works with the local cooperative leadership and cooperative development organizations with projects in the affected countries to be sure that funds are distributed to cooperators and cooperatives most in need.
