Benefits of being an Eden member:
Power to have an impact in your community life. Typically, you have to take office or be a civic organizer in your community to have any on your community. Eden creates the opportunity for you and others to pool money, align on the representatives that will represent your concerns best in allocating that money, and finally spend the pooled money to your benefit.
1) the benefit of applying more funds (the pooled funds) than you could apply to a project individually and
2) have more influence than you would have in others systems of coordination. See How does Eden emphasize and support the power of the individual? in this document for details on how your influence is magnified.
