The Local Crowd is transitioning to a member-owned cooperative and the first 50 members to join will be the Founding Members.
What does it mean to be a member of the TLC Cooperative?
Membership is Ownership! As a member, your community will enjoy all the features and benefits of a localized crowdfunding platform; plus, your organization will receive a percentage of the platform fees. You will also have a voice in the ongoing management and future of TLC, so you can grow it from the grassroots—and keep it focused on real, local needs.
Founding Members will be part of the formation of this new and powerful cooperative. Their input will build the foundation and shape the future. Founding Members will be recognized as the visionaries who created the initial structure and set the intention for the work to come. These Founding Members will be part of a permanent web page noting their contributions.
Some Founding Members may also want to serve on the Transition Team to develop organizational documents and an initial operations plan. Much work has already been done, so this process won’t be as demanding as starting from scratch. It will be a great way to get to know your fellow TLCers from around the country and share your talents. Some members may want to serve on the cooperative board once elections are held. Fill out the Co-op Interest Form now to let us know how you would like to participate.
The opportunity to become a Founding Member happens only once. The time is now!
