Paul Bindel,


Paul is the founder of Doghead Creative and the co-founder of Queen City Cooperative and Colorado Solidarity Fund. He is passionate about the arts and cooperative economics. The former offers space and tools to represent reality, society and history, while the latter helps us to practically reimagine the status quo.

Cierra McNamara,

Business Support

I believe societies are strongest when they look out for the least-advantaged, and individuals are strongest when they operate from generosity. I converted my business to a co-op in 2011 as a way of putting these principles into practice. I love knowing that membership in CSF allows my small contributions to be magnified in scale and scope.

Daniel Vogelsang, Website/Outreach

I am a Kansas-born farm-boy turned website-designer/web-app engineer, with a passion for environmental and commutative justice, and economic reform. The CSF offers me an opportunity to put my money where my mouth is by focusing on the re-imagination of local economy.

Daniel Paly,


Having lived in and worked with Co-Ops of various kinds I've found them to be potentially transformative ways to organize. I love CSF's emphasis on low-income and marginalized communities in particular and hope we truly do grow a Solidarity Economy that lifts up all that need it most.
