every cooperative has a story

Everyone loves a good story, and cooperatives have some of the best to share (though we may be biased).

This website was launched at the start of National Co-op Month in October 2016 to share the many ways cooperatives build community, trust, jobs, and so much more. The initial collection is a mix of published stories and original pieces created over three months by Cooperative Network with funding from the CHS Foundation. The stories here are a reflection of the seven guiding principles that all cooperatives share.
