Community Innovation Fund
Through a partnership with Impact Alamance, CoOperative was made the host of the Community Innovation Fund. This fund is made up of $100,000 that has to be spent down by summer of 2018. The fund is designed to act as a catalyst for creative projects and community development efforts within Alamance County. The goal for the fund is to identify, develop and support community-led initiatives which further our vision of thriving, dynamic community that values and invests in its people and places by supporting creativity, innovation and access to opportunity.

Did you know Alamance County has it's own chapter of The Awesome Foundation? It’s a global community that advances the interest of awesome in the universe (and right down the street), $1,000 at a time. We’ve distributed Awesome Fund grants to projects and their creators right here in Alamance County and are always seeking the next awesome idea. Awesome projects have included a forty person hammock in a city park in Boston, a mobile bike shop in Baltimore, a social entrepreneurship program for middle schoolers in Philadelphia, and so much more. The best part? Your awesome project could be part of this list. Click here to apply!
