What is a co-op? In the loosest sense, a co-op is any voluntary organization composed of a group of individuals (or organizations) formed for their mutual (generally, financial) benefit. These associations share a number of features (visit our co-op page for more info):
- They are democratic, volunteer associations.
- They are formed for mutual financial benefit (to save money or to increase buying power); in short, they are businesses.
- They have no owners other than their member-owners.
- They are non-profit organizations in the sense that what would be profit in other organizations is returned to the member-owners.
