## What is the CoTech Fund?
2020-04-04 06:21:30 +00:00
Following a [successful pilot year]( we have decided to make the CoTech fund permanent. The fund is a voluntary system where members of CoTech can contribute £1 per member, per week. The subscription is collected annually in advance. The fund can be used for any purpose that supports CoTech including, but not limited to:

- Marketing and promotion
- Events
- Paying for infrastructure costs (such as the [community forum](
Those co-ops who have joined the fund decide collectively how the fund should be distributed. We try to achieve this by consent, but where necessary can use a "one co-op, one vote" rule.
## How do I join the fund?
Send an email to `` and tell us how many members are in your co-op. We will then invoice you for the appropriate amount.

## How do I propose spending to the fund?
According to [the process outlined in 2019](
- A thread will be created on [CoTech Loomio]( to propose a spending item and the rationale behind it - [an example](
- Co-ops [contributing to the fund]( will have a week to inspect the notion and block it if they disagree. If there are no objections, the spending is approved.

## Where can I find out more about the fund?
There is a [fund category]( on the community forum where we post fund updates and discuss how to use the fund. Everyone can read these updates, and members of the co-ops in the fund can post.
