Cascade Cooperatives promotes local and emerging cooperatives in Whatcom and Skagit counties and educates the community about the cooperative business model.

Why choose a co-op?

We support the local cooperative business community in Whatcom and Skagit counties in Washington state.

Cooperatives offer a more sustainable and equitable business model than typical companies:
  • member- or worker-owned
  • profits circulate locally and build community
  • motivated to care for our community and the place we live
  • managed through member voting or democratic worker management

At Cascade Cooperatives we:

  • share resources with other co-ops
  • promote a healthy business ecosystem
  • promote networking between different kinds of co-ops, including social co-ops, co-op businesses, and other forms of cooperative enterprise
