Fundraising Complete – We Raised $2.4 Million in Start-up Grant Capital!
As of August, 31, 2018, we completed raising the necessary $2.4 Million in startup grant capital. Our last commitment, from the Maine Credit Union League brought us right to the mark. We are very appreciative of the League’s support and advice throughout the process.
Our commitments came from a wide range of donors: Maine Foundations, individual donors, a USDA Grant and support from the Maine Credit Union League. All have seen the value of creating an institution for a better food system in Maine.
We have also submitted our primary Federal Regulatory Application. At almost 1,000 pages, it was a major effort. Now we look forward to a few more regulatory hoops and hopefully opening our doors in 2019.
If you’d like to know more or help support our work during the next 9 months, please let us know.
