Congratulations on being accepted to BUD!
We’re so excited to build, unlearn & decolonize with you. Here's what's next...
- Please complete this Registration Form to attend BUD.
- Here's a link to the Payment Page for BUD. We want you to know that you can absolutely still attend BUD if you can’t make the registration payment. If your amount for registration still feels good to you, go ahead and make that payment on the link above by September 13th. Get in touch with Dallas ([email protected]) if you've got questions about any of this.
CoFED is committed to making BUD as accessible and equitable as possible. To make BUD affordable for everyone, please pay what you can. The full cost of registration is an estimated $3,200/person and includes: intentional scheduling, an uplifting curriculum built to inspire and inform, loving weekly check-ins with your facilitators, decolonized networking, a generative support system, rest-centered building, a toolkit for unlearning various oppressions, Earth-connected place-based work despite virtual gatherings, and so much more! Due to Covid-19 and the economic crisis many of us are facing, we are offering more than 50% off of the registration cost - the cost now is $1,500. Sliding scale registration per person is as follows:
$200 - Annual household income of $40,000 or less
$350 - Annual household income between $40,001 - $60,000
$500 - Annual household income between $60,001 - $80,000

$1,500 - Annual household income of $100,000 or more
If needed, your team has several places to turn to for scholarship and funding:
Funding can be obtained through your host co-op or organization. Consider professional development or programmatic budgets, or funding set aside for technical assistance and organizational development. College students can look to campus funds such as student clubs, sustainability commitments, academic departments' conference and travel budgets, etc. CoFED can help with this.
Try some community fundraising! CoFED believes deeply in community wealth-building, and living in collective abundance. We can help connect you to your local and regional community of aligned cooperatives, cooperative associations, and credit unions. Or you can implement your own fundraising idea! For example, a team in California found financial support from a local grocery cooperative as well as a regional non-profit whose mission is to advance health and food access. Not only did it lead to financial support; it also created new partnerships for their project that they continue to benefit from today. CoFED can also help with this!
