Ten weeks into the capital campaign and we’ve passed the halfway mark with $1,362,750 in owner investments, which represents 52 percent of our goal. Thank you once again to our owners for your support!
At Seward Co-op we have 11,908 (and counting) owners. With $1,137,250 left to raise, if 2,275 owners (roughly 20 percent of our ownership) purchased a single share we would reach our goal. In reality, 141 owners have invested, making the average investment $9,665. Within this context, if 120 owners made the average investment we’d reach our goal of $2.5 million.
We can all positively impact the capital campaign and contribute to the success of our expansion projects. Talk with your friends and neighbors. Direct them to customer service and to me for more information. This is a great way to invest in our co-op, contribute to the health of our economy and our community, and at the same time benefit from financial returns.
