Will you help us open the doors to the co-op?
Our growth needs community support.
It is very inspiring to see the commitment of our owners to keep our project moving along AND to welcome new owners to the family. Even in challenging times like this, we know we can count on each other to continue driving the momentum of our co-op forward.
As we head to 850 owners we move unto the next stages of co-op growth. We have identified 702 York Street as the #1 contender site for the ultimate co-op location. We are planning for an online store as a first step in making select locally produced food available and we must keep raising funds - to have enough in our bank account to keep moving forward.
It will take some real money to open an online store and to remodel a site into an amazing co-op, prepare it to suit shopper needs, hire a great team to operate the store, and ultimately open the doors.
We are confident in the enthusiasm and support of our fabulous owners, donors, community and businesses.
Remember: Every dollar given is a dollar for our community. Together we grow and provide good food on our family tables. Together we provide food security. Together, we are the Clipper City Co-op.
Please help us continue the progress by making a contribution today. Big or small, every dollar helps and is needed.
As always, we appreciate you and are most grateful for your support.

MAKE AN OWNER LOAN
An OWNER LOAN is a unique feature of a co-op that allows owners, 18 or older who reside in the state of Wisconsin, to make an unsecured monetary loan to the co-op and receive interest bearing pay-back. Loans can be made starting at $1,000 with no maximum. This is a great way to contribute and make a wise financial investment.
