We've had many awesome milestones along the way to opening our member-owned grocery store.
From conducting our feasibility study at our first 100 members, to launching our search for a location at 750, we are getting closer and closer to making this store a reality.
Why is March 31 an important date for us?
March 31 is when we need to have raised the funds to secure our location. Without a successful capital campaign, we will not be able to move forward with our site. Our lease is contingent upon us raising these funds.
If you want to help bring a community owned grocery store to Oshkosh's central city you can:
Become a member-owner! We need to continue to build our membership to 1200 before we open our doors.
- By the way- member-owners who are 18 years old and live in the State of Wisconsin are eligible to make a member-loan! Once you become a member, someone from our campaign team will be in touch about the details of this exciting and unique opportunity.
- Already have a packet, but have some questions about how to complete it? (We get it, it's a hefty legal document!) Email us at email@example.com to set up a time for us to help.
- Make a donation. We need community support to make this happen and a food co-op will benefit the entire community. Thanks to the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation, we can accept charitable contribution to our project.
- Questions? Are you interested in making a contribution but aren't sure where to start? Perhaps you're a member who would like to learn more about why member-loans are important to this campaign? Not sure how to make the biggest impact? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 920.312.7220 for more information.
Based on our most recent market study, this site is the best location for our store.
Will you help ensure it can be a reality? 191 co-op owners and community supporters have already contributed to the capital campaign. Will you join them? We can do this!
