Local Finance Guild

The Local Finance Guild focuses on ways to transition from an economic system which contributes to alienation, competition, and an illusion of scarcity, destroys community, and demands endless growth to one that supports sustainability, wholeness, and connection of human gifts with human needs.  Ways to revitalize our local economy include pairing local investors with local businesses that need capital through our LEG UP group, creating a Lopez foundation for grants, promoting credit unions, and looking for opportunities to set up equity investing such as a community solar project.  

If you would like to get involved in any of the projects of the Local Finance Guild, leave a reply below and you will be contacted.
