Nonprofit Recording Co-op Business Plan

Nonprofit Recording Co-op Business Plan

Gamehenge Tapers Co-op is a not-for-profit organization that was created to serve the Portland tapers community. Tapers are a hobby-based community that trades recordings for personal and non-commercial use. The Co-op will supply the equipment necessary to support the taping of shows. This supports the trading community, which is people who trade live shows only for personal consumption. The Co-op sells recording equipment wholesale at a low overhead. By offering the members heavily discounted rates, it encourages them to become more active tapers. Because the organization operates as a non-profit cooperative, members will volunteer their time in order to help it succeed. It exists to help the trading community.

Membership dues and a small charge for overhead will allow the organization to cover costs associated with doing business and allow it to slowly grow. Gamehenge Tapers Co-op is increasing its membership roster by at minimum 20% annually.
