The Data Commons Project has primarily been a volunteer effort since it was conceived in 2005.  We have had occasional grants, including the generous support of Equal Exchange, the Cooperative Charitable Trust, and the USDA.  Donating helps us pay our programmers for some of their work and keep our technology up to date.  If you like and want the project to grow, please consider donating.  

Donations can be made to our fiscal sponsor, the Cooperative Development Institute, at this address:
