Hi all As Diane notes in her email below, we need $1,500 for mailing and other out-of-pocket costs to supplement the hundreds of volunteer hours which have gone into creating the Phase 3 Survey. Donations have begun to come in (thanks!) but we still are short of our goal. CohoUS has informed me that they will accept your designated donations to help with the Phase Three survey and have set up a separate account to receive them. Since they are a 501(c)3, donations will be tax deductible. Make out the check to CohoUS, being sure to note on it that it is for "Phase Three". Send the check to: Georgi Jenkins, Operations Manager, Cohousing Association of the United States PO Box 28218 Seattle WA 98118 Thanks so much for your help with this important work. The more we know about the benefits of cohousing, the more effectively we can persuade policy-makers and funders to support it. The information will also help us find ways to strengthen our communities. Rick PS Remember--there is still time to register for this year's exciting national cohousing conference (and the Research and Writers Workshop!): Creating Sustainable Neighborhoods; Learning from the Cohousing Experience!

( http://www.cohousing.org/docs/2011/survey_of_cohousing_communities_2011.pdf) This year we have been working on Phase 3, a random survey of cohousers, and we are about to send out the questionnaires. For various reasons we plan to mail invitations to participate in the survey. That will require funds for postage and printing. The researchers themselves and CohoUS have contributed all they could, but we are still about $1500 short of the needed amount. If you can make a contribution to this effort, please contact: "Richart Keller" <richart.keller [at] gmail.com>, Diane Margolis < diane [at] cambridgecohousing.org> or "Angela Sanguinetti" < angelasanguinetti [at] gmail.com>. _________________________________________________________________ Cohousing-L mailing list -- Unsubscribe, archives and other info at: http://www.cohousing.org/cohousing-L/
