Sliding Scale Registration
Because we want to make CommonBound as accessible as possible, registration is on a sliding scale from $180 - $550. This means we are asking you to make an honest evaluation of what is within your means for attending the conference this year. The true per-person cost of the conference is $275, so we encourage you to pay at or above that level if it is within your means. This cost is what it takes for us to provide conference space, programming, childcare, translation/interpretation, transportation, and food.
Support the work of CommonBound and the New Economy Coalition by being as generous as possible in your registration amount. Any increment of $275 allows us to offer another full scholarship to another attendee who needs it. You can also donate beyond $550, the sky's the limit!
Choose the amount that makes the most sense for your ability and needs. Please read the descriptions of the other registration levels as a guide. If this range is still outside your means we invite you to apply for financial support.
Please note that tickets for Network Gatherings, Site Visits, and Housing are considered “add ons” and may not be purchased without a conference registration ticket.
Here are our registration levels:
Builder - $550*
If you are a person with wealth or your organization is sending you and has a budget of over $1 million please register at or around this level. This covers the true per-person cost of organizing CommonBound to provide food, housing, childcare, interpretation, and transportation AND allows us to provide 1 full scholarship to another attendee.
Inventor - $400*
If your organization is sending you and has a budget between $500 thousand and $1 million, or if you are a person of economic privilege, please register at or around this level. This covers the true per-person cost of organizing CommonBound to provide food, housing, childcare, interpretation, and transportation AND allows us to provide financial support to another attendee.
Collaborator - $275*
This is the true per-person cost of organizing CommonBound to provide food, housing, childcare, interpretation, and transportation. If you or your organization can afford to register at or around this level please do.
Ally - $180*
This is the recommended rate for students, grassroots organizers, people from frontline communities, and low income/working class people.

All the above registrations include full conference access, five meals during the conference (Sat: breakfast, lunch, dinner; Sun: breakfast, lunch), interpretation/translation, childcare options, and access to housing options. Any amount paid for one individual beyond $275 will be considered a tax-deductible donation to New Economy Coalition.
