Dear Shared Capital Co-op Members, Investors, and Friends,

The Good News

Demand for financing for cooperative projects has never been higher in our 45 years. In 2022, we had a record year of $7 million in lending. By August of 2023, we had already broken that record and we lent a total of $11 million for the year. We are continuing to make loans and there is still over $3 million in additional projects seeking financing this year that we have not been able to meet. 

The Opportunity

Help us meet this cooperative moment. We are inviting you to invest to help us raise $3 million for cooperatives. You can directly support cooperative expansions, conversions, and start-ups by investing in Shared Capital. We hope you will join more than 200 individuals, cooperatives, foundations, and other impact investors who have already invested. If you are interested in helping build a new economy, now is the time!
