We Did It!

In the last week of our campaign, KCFC member-owners stepped up in a big way. By raising $25,000 in member loans, we took full advantage of The Common Market's dollar-for-dollar match. This means a total of $50,000 has been secured to bring KCFC closer to opening its doors!

$25,000 in 25 Days.  KCFC. The Common Market. Good. Fresh. Local.

There is still work to be done...

Opening a cooperative grocery store truly takes a village. We have a timeline to open by the end of 2017, but that can only happen if KCFC member-owners continue to step up and show their support. Ways you can do that include:

  • Make a loan:
    This campaign is over, but we will continue to be fundraising over the next few months to secure the last bit of capital needed to break ground. At last count, we're approximately 80% of the way to a fully funded project. You can close that gap with a loan to KCFC.
  • Talk to your neighbors about KCFC:
    Everything's better with more members-owners. With our GM hired, $25,000 campaign completed, and the project so close to the finish line, now's the perfect time to join. Remember, we offer flexible payment plans, too!
  • Volunteer your time:
    All of us together help make the dream possible. Whether it's joining a Committee, running for the Board, providing a service, or helping to maintain the site, all hands are welcome! Email volunteer@kcfc.coop to learn more about how you can support the project in ways that interest you.

What we're building towards...

A 2,000+ square foot, member-owned, community-staffed, job-creating and locally-focused grocery store, cafe, and bar (with 4 rotating taps of local beer and draft wine, plus growlers and bottles to-go) owned by you and open to all. Read more about the store features in our "Explore Your Store" blog series.
