The Howard Bowers Fund silent auction at CCMA is the Fund's biggest fundraiser of the year. Your donation will support training for cooperative boards and staff at CCMA and throughout the year. Donations to the event will be advertised on the CCMA website and social media. Auction items range from co-op t-shirts, reusable shopping bags, gift baskets and "swag" items to complimentary registrations to the top co-op conferences. Please consider a donation that showcases your co-op!

Since 1994, the Howard Bowers Fund has provided over $500,000 in support for food cooperatives through the support of board and staff training of new and established co-ops and scholarships to CCMA and Up and Coming. Because of your support, 20 people will be attending CCMA in Sioux Falls on scholarship!
