Support Worker Cooperatives in Ukraine
Ukraine's cooperative businesses and members are at risk as Russia's invasion of the country continues. Under incredibly challenging conditions, the country's consumer cooperatives are working to maintain operations so member-owners can continue to rely on co-op goods and services.
The National Co+op Grocers (NCG), an organization of 148 food co-ops across the U.S., has partnered with the Cooperative Development Foundation (CDF) and the National Cooperative Business Administration (NCBA CLUSA) to launch a fundraising drive through the CDF's Disaster Recovery Fund to support Ukrainian cooperatives with immediate ongoing aid. NCG has pledged a 100% match for all donations up to $100,000 made by the food co-op retail system.
