Fundraising for the Co-op as a whole

Summary: 

Fundraising for the Co-op takes time and resources, but it increases the total budget we have to discuss. National fundraising strategy is coordinated by our paid Membership Coordinator, with the crucial support of volunteers who put time and energy into local fundraising events and phone-a-thons. Media Co-op resources also go towards grant writing, finding advertisers for the Dominion, sending special mailouts and offering subscription deals.

Moving to Non-monetary

I think we need to think of ways to make the co-op as non-monetary as possible.

 I feel that a concerted approach to attract volunteer writers and workers should be a priority.

Prioritize this

Fundraising can mean many things, and I wouldn't advocate for having core staff chasing down 1-time grants. But by seeking funds in an intelligent and ,methodical way, we not only increase the revenue, we also have many more conversations about the media co-op, often with groups/individuals who might otherwise not be aware of it.
