Purpose

A Coworking and Makerspace Cooperative in Philmont, NY




About

We’re a member-run cooperative located in Philmont, NY. We were established in 2017 after taking over the former for-profit Purpose Coworking space.

We’re good neighbors

Members come from all over the Hudson Valley. We engage with the surrounding community via free programs and by donating space and providing visibility to local organizations.

We wash our own mugs

Members build, maintain, clean, and fix things to keep costs down and build sweat equity. We embrace cooperative anarchy and make decisions slowly and intentionally.
