URGENT! Help our neighbors, the East Phillips Neighborhood Institute!
A historic environmental justice opportunity is unfolding in Minneapolis. The East Phillips Neighborhood Institute is preparing to buy the Roof Depot building and construct a cooperatively-run community hub centered around an indoor urban farm and affordable housing.
But EPNI is far from the finish line and in a critical phase of crowdfunding. Though we are pursuing grants and other long-term funding, we have immediate costs this fall that can’t wait. If you can help EPNI raise $50k by this Friday, August 25th, we’ll receive a crucial $10k matching donation, further increasing the impact of your donation.
We’re at just under $30K of our $50k goal, and we have five days left to get there!
To learn more about the East Phillips Neighborhood Institute, go to their website: https://www.epnifarm.org/
Follow the link below to contribute funds–if you’ve got a spare $5 or $500 bucks hanging around!–everything helps!
