Member Loan Campaign

MoCo is thrilled to announce that the time for Member-Owners to help take the final steps to open the doors of our co-op is here!

Our co-op will be a welcoming space for the community to gather around a diverse selection of local, organic, and high quality foods. And when you walk in, it won’t be just another store; it will be OUR store!

To get there though, we need your help. We need to raise $300,000 in MEMBER-OWNER LOANS so we can cover “””"equipment “”” and startup costs, as well as provide working capital to give us financial stability.  In Phase 1 of our Campaign we raised over $190,000 or two thirds of this goal. 

By joining MoCo, you have already been a huge part of our success and growth, and we THANK YOU for that!  Now, we need your support in another way. In order for us to MEET OUR GOAL and be fully capitalized, we will need Member-Owners to loan $1,000, $5,000, $10,000, $20,000 or even more. We hope you will be one of those Member-Owners!

The goal of raising $300,000 is challenging, but with your help, and what we have already accomplished, we know WE CAN achieve it. In the next few weeks we’ll be calling and emailing all Member-Owners to discuss your interest in our campaign.
