"KOMBIT" (comb-beet) is a Haitian word used to define a community working together towards a common goal. It's an intentional practice of individuals coming together to accomplish more than they can accomplish alone
Kombit is a monthly donation community in support of the work Urban Roots does in partnership with our Madison neighbors and community partners. As a member of the Urban Roots Kombit community, you become part of a group of changemakers and placemakers who care about bringing about more beauty and justice to this world. And you get the joy of knowing you are making a difference in the lives of many people, creating change, creating jobs, and letting your money speak. When people come together, we have a powerful collective wealth! Not just financial - but all kinds of skill, talent, and social capital based wealth!
