Cultivating Our Sisterhood International Association, Inc. (COSIA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to cultivate a sense of sisterhood among women and to enhance the lives of those whom they support. Our founder had a dream about five letters (COSIA) that evolved into a charge to bring diverse groups of women together for volunteering, fundraising, personal enrichment, and professional development. Our simple yet powerful motto is: One plants, another waters, but God gives the increase.

At COSIA, our vision is to:

  1. create and develop supportive networks that are not limited by age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, and/or any other category of separation;
  2. utilize our supportive networks as resources to produce affordable events and programs that promote the development, critical review, and active pursuit of personal and professional life goals and objectives; and
  3. support through fundraising and volunteer activities socially conscious initiatives and programs that benefit women and youth from underserved communities.
