BENEFITING: COOPERATIVE DEVELOPMENT FOUNDATION
Since 1994, the Howard Bowers fund has provided over $380,000 in support for food cooperatives through support of board and staff training of new and established co-ops and scholarships to CCMA and Up and Coming, Up and Running. Over 25 people attended CCMA in Boise because of a scholarship! Leading up to Howard Bowers Day and Co-op Month, we would like to showcase everyone who has been Benefited by Bowers. From grants to scholarships, the Bowers Fund has strengthened the food co-op community nationwide. The Cooperative Development Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation headquartered in Washington, DC. CDF's mission is to promote community, economic and social development through cooperative enterprises. (www.cdf.coop).
