The Kola Nut Collaborative

The Kola Nut Collaborative (KNC) is a mutual support network of people engaged in reciprocal exchange of services, skills, and goods through a timebank where the currency is an hour of time for everyone. The Kola Nut Collaborative is a fiscally sponsored project of Open Collective Foundation.

Our network is strategically supported by Kola Community Solutions LLC, a social enterprise formed to develop and pilot innovative solutions to issues impacting Chicago communities employing Just Transition strategies to strengthen a citywide solidarity economy.
