Local Investing Success with TLC Upper Valley!

The Local Crowd (TLC) Upper Valley is a locally based crowdfunding platform that empowers individuals to invest in the businesses, organizations and initiatives that support vital communities in our region. We recently wrapped up the pilot phase of this project that supported five projects in Canaan, Enfield, Topsham, and White River Junction that collectively raised almost $50,000 from more than 300 contributors!

Thank you, Upper Valley, for supporting:

Whaleback Mountain: Base Lodge Energy Efficiency Updates, $21,180
Mascoma Friends Feeding Friends: Friends Feeding Foodie, $13,970
 Willow Tree Community Compost: Closing the Food Waste Loop, $4,080
 Sunrise Farm: Close the Loop with Compost, $4,555
The Growing Peace Project: Food for Thought, $5,725

Sixty percent of the TLC Upper Valley campaigns met or surpassed their crowdfunding goals (Kickstarter has a 31% success rate).
