Nationwide Foundation Supports CDF Mission
The Nationwide Foundation, a private foundation supported by donations from Nationwide companies, showed its continued commitment to building a more inclusive economy through cooperatives with a $60,000 grant to the Cooperative Development Foundation. This generous grant will be used to support CDF's operations as well as NCBA CLUSA's 2020 Cooperative IMPACT Conference and Council of Cooperative Economists.
"The Nationwide Foundation support will help CDF and NCBA CLUSA in our work to improve economic opportunity in the United States by promoting and developing cooperatives. As a mutual insurance company, Nationwide knows the power of people working together. They have been a consistent partner of cooperatively owned businesses and the organizations that support them. We greatly appreciate their continued support," said Leslie Mead, executive director, CDF.
Since 2000, the Nationwide Foundation has contributed more than $498 million to non-profit organizations across the country that work to meet crucial needs in communities with significant presence of Nationwide associates.
