We rely entirely on donations to do this important work. We charge no fees to the lenders or to the borrowers we serve.
Every week we search out new lenders, and sustainable farmers who need capital. And we connect them. Again, and again – all year long.
We are the only resource we’ve found, if want some help adding local-farm/food-advocacy-style altruism to your portfolio.
And for the farmers ~ we are often the resource that keeps them going.
We want to continue doing this – but it’s up to you.
Please donate to Slow Money NC today and help us catalyze more peer-to-peer lending, coach both lenders and borrowers, and hold gatherings so more people can learn about the importance of local financing of local farms!
For every $1 donated to Slow Money NC, approximately $50 flows to local and organic food enterprises via our small, but hard-working Slow Money team. That’s an extraordinary and powerful multiplier! It means your contribution has impact! You are creating resilience in your foodshed, bringing more healthy, locally and sustainably grown food to your community. Thank you.
Every dollar counts. Your local farmers, local eaters, the fertile topsoil, and our precious planet all thank you!

*To be exact, a new Slow Money NC, Inc. 501 C-3 non-profit application has been filed with the Internal Revenue Service, and is under review, so is pending. We have an EIN# from the NC Secretary of State, and have no reason to doubt our application will be accepted in the next few weeks. As soon as that is final, we will mail letters to all donors to use for tax purposes.
