Urgent – Help Our Neighbors – the East Phillips Neighborhood Institute

submitted by gilmerje@augsburg.edu

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!
