Co-Purchase Colorado

Leveraging Congregation Buying Power
​for Local Economic Impact

Co-Purchase Colorado (CPC) is a movement designed to leverage congregations’ buying power to create meaningful change in the local economy.  We work with congregations to focus their spending to embody their social and racial justice values by purchasing needed goods and services from local, BIPOC, immigrant, women, LGTBQ, and veteran owned businesses in their communities. CCWB seeks to build intentional relationships with local business owners to provide support and access to these new markets through CPC.  

Values-Based Purchasing ​

 

​We deliver on congregations’ desire to align their purchasing with their social mission. By contracting with BIPOC-owned businesses whenever possible, we contribute to a more just local economy. 

Efficiency

We streamline congregations’  purchasing of needed goods and services. Partner congregations will focus on their strengths because CCWB will build relationships with businesses, vet them, and manage bidding and contract negotiations. Individual congregations will still make all final purchasing decisions. ​

​Consumer Protection

​Through the vendor relationship building and vetting process, our team will hold vendors accountable and troubleshoot as needed, focusing on supporting businesses in strengthening their operations.
