Help build new sustainable and cooperative economies across Africa and globally for these students.


Please indicate "Community Currencies — Africa." on your check or online payment.

We believe that communities should be afforded the same privileges as nations and empowered to develop their own prospering economies with the stability of their own currencies. Because of our shared purpose, we are happy to announce that the Schumacher Center has agreed to serve as a sponsor of Grassroots Economics’ work in Africa. Donations are therefore tax-exempt under US law.

We encourage those that are able to support the cause by making a tax deductible donation to the Schumacher Center for a New Economics. To make sure your support reaches our work in Africa please indicate "Community Currencies — Africa." on your check or online payment.

Grassroots Economics is a non-profit foundation. We implement our programs through training students, sponsors and partners that support our programs from time to time. We are seeking support to both spread our programs through sponsored training of leaders across Africa and to deepen cooperative economic resilience in communities already using Community Currencies through increasing health, education and trade opportunities.

Donations are used to support the development of cooperatives and their businesses, train leaders and communities on developing and maintaining community currencies based on their cooperatives.

For year end financial audits, or direct bank wiring instructions or more information please contact us. Also please take the time to tells us us about yourself and where you want your donation directed so we can put your name on our sponsors page.

Help these programs spread to more areas by making a contribution to help marginalized communities. This support affects the lives of more than 200,000 people living in informal settlements and low income rural areas.
