  Our Story  

At Forest Ridge Financial, we understand the unique challenges faced by organizations in managing their finances effectively. That's why we offer personalized bookkeeping solutions that cater to the specific needs of each client, ensuring accuracy, compliance, and peace of mind. But we're not just here to crunch numbers; we're passionate about educating our clients on financial management best practices and the benefits of the cooperative structure.

Speaking of cooperatives, we firmly believe in the power of cooperation and solidarity. By operating as a cooperative ourselves, we embody the values of democracy, equality, and community self-help. Through our work and advocacy, we aim to promote the cooperative model as a sustainable and equitable business solution, empowering organizations to thrive while fostering economic resilience and social responsibility.

Cooperatives have a rich history rooted in community, solidarity, and economic empowerment. Dating back to the 19th century, cooperatives emerged as a response to the social and economic challenges faced by workers and marginalized groups. By pooling resources, sharing risks, and making decisions democratically, cooperatives offered a viable alternative to traditional business models, placing people over profit and fostering sustainable development.

Throughout the years, cooperatives have played a pivotal role in various sectors, from agriculture and finance to housing and healthcare. By adhering to the seven cooperative principles—voluntary and open membership, democratic control, member economic participation, autonomy and independence, education, training, and information, cooperation among cooperatives, and concern for the community—cooperatives have demonstrated their ability to promote economic resilience, social inclusion, and environmental sustainability.

We recognize the importance of cooperatives as a force for positive change. That's why we are proud to operate as a cooperative ourselves and to advocate for the cooperative model as a means of building a more just and equitable society. Join us in honoring the legacy of cooperatives and shaping a future where cooperation reigns supreme.
