Benefits of Membership

As a member of Cosmos, you’ll receive the following benefits:

  • Participation in monthly community meetings and events with other Cosmos members
  • Access to members-only areas in our community forum, Infinite Conversations, with high-quality dialogues and cooperative connections
  • Invitations to private reading and discussion groups, as well as pre-publication feedback groups for Untimely Books and Metapsychosis authors
  • Discounts on books from Untimely Books, as well as courses and other future offerings from Cosmos Creative Members
  • Eligibility to serve on the Cosmos Council or in other leadership roles, and voting rights on Co-op wide decisions

The minimum contribution to qualify as a Sustaining Member is $8/month or $96/year.

Non-Monetary Contributions

For people who do not have the financial means, we welcome service-based and in-kind contributions. This could include performing a variety of tasks, such as community moderation, assisting with events, or providing support for our writers and artists. Please contact us if you would like to become a Sustaining Member through contributing labor or other resources that could be of benefit to the Co-op.

Disclosures

Please note that because Cosmos is registered as an L.C.A. (Limited Cooperative Association) rather than a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, contributions to Cosmos are not currently tax-deductible. Part of the legal work we are doing will involve exploring how Cosmos can accept larger contributions or even investments, with beneficial tax implications.

Cosmos Cooperative practices transparent accounting. We hold monthly meetings of the Finance Circle, which all members are welcome to attend, and can provide details about all our income, expenses, and obligations upon request.
