As we count down the days and count up the campaign totals, every investment gets us closer to capitalizing the Co-op. The Capital Campaign is second only to your member-ownership in importance, and is the embodiment of Cooperative Principle No. 3: Member Economic Participation.

Over the course of the Campaign, we’ve heard from owner-investors who have indicated that they may be able to come through with an additional investment as the Campaign draws to a close. With the November deadline approaching, now is the time!

Our average preferred share investment is $3,000 and our average member-owner loan is $4,000. If you are able to make an investment at the $5,000 or $10,000 level or more, you can make a very real impact and help the Co-op community realize our collective goal. Want to fully embody the cooperative spirit? Consider issuing a challenge to help everyone maximize their investment.

Please call Sheila (912-0672) or Mike (316-1090). They’re full of great ideas and can help get the word out should you choose to issue a challenge. Or send us an email at [email protected]. Thank you!
