How is it Funded?
The Co-op Cred program money used for credit is provided entirely by community donations. These financial donations are essentially financial gifts. This means Co-op Cred itself is essentially a gift from community members to participants. Our major fundraising event is the Humber Ride4Real Food which takes place annually in June. Additional money needed to develop, co-ordinate, and deliver the program was and continues to be generously provided by grants from progressive foundations.
