Description

Become a Sustaining Member of Cosmos Co-op to support our community of writers, artists, scholars, media makers, and other visionary creatives. As a Sustaining Member at any level, you’ll be part of a growing, global movement that is bringing together consciousness, creativity, and cooperation in the service of a more beautiful world.

Your Sustaining Membership includes:

  • Access to the Infinite Conversations private community forum, with moderated discussions and deep dialogues focused on art, literature, philosophy, spirituality, and any other topics our members are discussing.
  • Access to members-only features of our literary arts journal Metapsychosis, including private reading groups and author events.
  • Members-only discounts on courses, workshops, and retreats, as well as new releases from our publishing imprint, Untimely Books, and other member projects.
  • Voting rights in the co-op, with the ability to influence and help shape the direction of our organization and community by participating in working groups, advisory committees, and leadership circles.
  • Eligibility to become a Creative Member of Cosmos (requires a separate application process), which includes writing and collaboration groups; publishing and promotional opportunities; and the ability to earn money through patronage dividends and equity-based contributions to other members’ projects.
  • Investment opportunities in member projects, as well as the co-op as a whole (coming soon!), along with the opportunity to sponsor creative members and help bring their projects into the world.

The minimum Sustaining Member contribution is $12/month or $120/year. If you have the means to give more, please do! If you would like to be part of Cosmos, yet require financial assistance, please contact us to inquire about work-exchange and sponsorship opportunities.

For Benefactors

If you would like to make a sizable contribution to Cosmos—minimum $1000/year—you will also be eligible to participate in the Benefactors advisory circle, and be invited to join in quarterly meetings with Cosmos leadership. We will also feature you or your organization on this website on our Sponsors page (coming soon).

Please note that because Cosmos is registered as an L.C.A. (Limited Cooperative Association) rather than a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, donations to Cosmos are not tax-deductible.
