Dear Ann and CoHoUS, 

We at Nevada City Cohousing have always carried funds in our annual HOA budget 
to support the Association, along with encouraging members to do more as they 
are able on their own. But we can easily forget if we don't get a notice for 
our annual contribution from the Cohousing Association. Will the CohoUS be 
sending out reminders and encouragement to all communities to make 
contributions soon?  We are in the process of developing our 2021 HOA Budget 
now, so getting such notices out in September would likely be the most 
effective time.

    Fundraising Committee.  Please even if you have limited time consider at

    discuss how you might contribute or someone you know who might be a good

    As my late husband, Bob Zimmerman (a fundraiser extraordinaire) used to
    say, "Many board members and staff view fundraising as "genteel
    begging" *rather
    than *as creating opportunities for citizens (coho members) to invest in a
    successful enterprise (CoHo US).  Let's help all of us invest in
