The California Center for Cooperative Development (CCCD) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation that promotes the cooperative business model to address the social and economic needs of California communities through the development of cooperatives, education, training, and technical assistance. CCCD serves as a resource about cooperatives to the public, media, and others interested in additional information.
CCCDs advocacy and promotion of cooperatives includes using this member-driven, democratically-governed model to create opportunities for disenfranchised groups and to build local economies through job creation, home ownership opportunities, enterprise expansion and developing sustainable local food systems. Cooperatives build local economies and stronger communities.
