Will you help us open the doors to the co-op?
There is so much excitement happening at the co-op!
It is very inspiring to see the commitment of our owners to keep our project moving along AND to welcome new owners just about every day! Even in challenging times like this, we know we can count on each other to continue driving the momentum forward.
As we head to 850 owners we move unto the next stages of co-op growth - finalizing negotiations at 702 York street, searching for a general manager and fundraising - to have enough in our bank account to keep moving forward!
It will take some real money, approximately 1.9 million dollars, to remodel a site into an amazing co-op, prepare it to suit your needs, hire a great team to operate the store, and ultimately open the doors.
We are confident we will raise essential funds with the support and generosity of our fabulous donors, community and businesses.
Remember: We are fundraising for US, as the owners of the Clipper City Co-op. Every dollar raised is our investment together.
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.
We need your help to open the co-op doors.

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.
