The Cooperative Development Foundation
CDF’s mission is to promote and develop cooperatives to improve economic opportunities for all. The Foundation is operated for charitable, scientific, and education purposes with particular emphasis on promoting community, economic and social development through cooperative enterprise. CDF's purpose is threefold: to raise and distribute funds for cooperative economic and community development projects; to build partnerships that create cooperative solutions to today's economic problems; and to raise awareness of the role cooperatives play in the nation's and world's economies. CDF's revenues include contributions and grants, government grants, investment income and receipts from special events.
