In my distant past I worked for a community foundation and sought and wrote grants to national foundations like Ford Foundation, Kellogg Foundation, etc. there is a great deal of research you can do on the Internet to find funders interested in community development and housing issues. I would also suggest researching local community foundations where private funds are many times directed towards these issues. Often foundations will have initiatives that actually address issues cohousing community's may have. You would need to put together a concept paper or a research proposal to identify how Cohousing is addressing systemic problems in communities and how directing funding could enhance or expand the impact cohousing community's have within the community. Foundations look for results, change in the status quo, and how their dollars make a difference. One of the big assets you have is the ability to replicate research findings on a broader scale nationally. You might want to think about pulling together from the cohousing community's people who have worked with foundations or have a grant writing experience to be a think tank for how funds could be utilized to create change within their communities, cities, states and the world. You need to have some very unique and specific ideas that have outcomes from the investment of funding which will create change. Jan Kenney Placitas Sage Co housing Sent from my iPad
