2020 has been a year like no other for small businesses. To help sustain EDC's work, we are respectfully asking for your support so that EDC can continue building a more inclusive Evanston. If anything, COVID-19 has made the need for a resilient, equitable Evanston community more visible than ever. Our employee-owners would be grateful for your help to cover our operating expenses as we continue working towards this vision each day. Thank you!
Our mission and values drive our day-to-day work, and we seek cooperative members who care about the Evanston that their great grandchildren will live in. EDC’s community-owned business collaborates with our entire town to own long-standing social issues, because we need to move the needle on affordable housing, local workforce development, racial equity, and climate action today.
EDC shares provide you with one vote, like every other member of our cooperative. Your membership means that you help govern our organization’s work in the Evanston community, providing expertise and direction on business operations and our long-term social goals.
As an EDC member, you will collaborate with local civic leaders and construction workers to address our town’s biggest challenges through our democratic, collectively-owned business.
Our mission and values are at the core of what we do, which is why we seek to build and share community wealth in a more equitable way through our cooperative model. By supporting EDC, you’ll be helping the entire community work toward long-standing goals of sensible housing, workforce development and environmental sustainability.
