Why We Are Now Columinate

June 5, 2019

Hello from Columinate! As some of you may have noticed, CDS Consulting Co-op is now Columinate. We have a new name that celebrates our commitment to you. We work together to light the way forward. It’s an exciting time for our co-op — as we expand our services to support mission-driven organizations like yours.

You’ll see it’s not just our name that’s changing. We’ve changed our website, and our messaging; all inspired to help your organization succeed. Our services remain the same for those who have worked with us. Our mission is an enhanced version of what we have always known about ourselves: Columinate is a consulting cooperative that provides strategies, tools, and skills to help purpose-driven organizations build and empower community.

What’s changed? Actually, not much. We’re still the same organization supporting organizations with purpose. Our experts’ focus remains the same; we have a fresh perspective and a personal touch, all designed to help you thrive. It’s truly our commitment to mission-driven organizations that has helped us clarify our focus and expand the breadth of expertise that Columinate truly represents. From food co-ops, to electrics co-ops, to educational organizations — it’s inspiring to help clients make a difference in our communities.

If you want to learn more about Columinate, I encourage you to reach out to us. Any of our consultants can tell you more about Columinate and how we work with you to customize services that meet your needs. I also encourage you to explore our new website where you can learn more about our resources and knowledgeable experts. We’re incredibly proud of the work we have done and grateful to all of you. We are committed to you!
