Gamehenge Tapers Co-op is a not-for-profit organization that was created to serve the Portland tapers community. The tapers community is a hobby-based group that trades live recordings for their own personal use and no commercial gain. The Co-op provides equipment to facilitate taping shows. This also supports the trading community which trades live shows for personal use. The Co-op sells recording equipment wholesale at a low overhead. Members are encouraged to become tapers by being offered heavily discounted rates. Members volunteer their time to support the co-op and make the organization successful. This organization exists to support the trading communities.
Dues for membership and a small overhead fee will cover the costs of running the business. This will allow it to continue to grow. Gamehenge Tapers Co-op will be increasing their membership roster by at least 20% per year.

- To establish a co-op with the primary goal of serving its members.
- To increase the membership by 20% every year.
