ORICoop Foundational Members

In March 2017, ORICoop was formally registered as a Co-operative in Victoria, and the ORICoop Board appointed. We were so encouraged by the support we received in our Pozible campaign, and welcomed over (50+) foundational members, and raised over $12,000 (of our $10,000 goal).

Here are our ORICoop Foundational members, and we thank them for their support in the early stages of our formative journey.
