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

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

Why choose a co-op?

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
