Affordability: What It’s Good For

Posted on March 7, 2013 by

At Acorn, as in the larger world, the most important thing to be able to afford may be giving something away.

Let's make the communities movement thrive!

You can help more people discover intentional communities by signing up as a monthly donor. For every new monthly donor (even as little as $5 per month), we will receive an additional $100 thanks to the Fund for Democratic Communities! 

Your donation gives belonging and hope for the future.
