About the Cooperative Design Lab Series

In Spring 2021, NOW partnered with 15 community champions from across the country to embark on a journey of reimagining funding structures to center, honor, and uphold the values of local communities and coalitions. They learned about the principles and types of cooperative models and their role in advancing economic and social leadership; engaged in a collective design thinking process to envision new funding structures to foster deeper collaboration; and organized a showcase presentation for funders, advisors, practitioners, and invited guests.

 

Together, Design Lab members developed a reflection guide that encourages funders and their potential partners to think intentionally about the goals and outcomes of their relationship, focused on a set of key Guiding Principles and Practices that build on elements of successful cooperative and collaborative structures. Learn more about this series through this blog post, Reimagining Funding Partnership.
