TCCN now on - 
Exciting & easy new way to support Twin Cities Cohousing Network

Not only are we meeting on Thurs., Nov. 15, that day also is Give to the Max Day 2018 here in Minnesota...a day when your small gift can help Twin Cities Cohousing Network access special bonus random grants from

Please open your hearts and pocketbooks for local organizations working at the forefront of making our communities better, including Twin Cities Cohousing Network. You also can simply "like" our profile on our page.

This year, it's possible to set up your GiveToTheMax Day (GTTM) donation in advance. Please consider a gift--large or small--to help fund our all-volunteer collective work to educate about and facilitate more cohousing communities forming in the Twin Cities. Amplify the power of information and grassroots connection.

Various bonuses can be won by nonprofit organizations whose donors contribute during the GTTM Day campaign. You may contribute as little as $10 through the website, which then gives our organization a chance to access an hourly bonus donation. For those who are able, larger gifts are appreciated, of course, too.

The organization has vastly upgraded its interface over the last couple of years.  Try it out - minimum donation is $10.

Thank you!

Cohousing in the media

Our friends at Monterey Cohousing were featured in this tpt REWIRE segment.

Secured:  501c3 nonprofit status

Through persistent effort by the board, Twin Cities Cohousing Network was approved for and received 501c3 status from the IRS. 

This opens up many doors for the organization. We hope you'll continue to send us your ideas for further developing Twin Cities Cohousing Network to fulfill the vision you have for cohousing a place for you or your family to live, as well as an option among housing choices available for all.

Starting in February. Let us know your background and interests in an email to twincities [at] cohousing [dot] org and we'll put you on the Doodle poll list to set up our initial meeting.
