In the beginning, we picked “Collective” as part of our name because we wanted to be a community based nonprofit where local residents and business owners would play an important role in the work. We are recruiting members to provide a way for people like you to become personally a part of the work we are collectively doing in the Edgewater community. Becoming a member of Edgewater Collective shows your desire to join this important work of creating a thriving Edgewater for all.
