TLC Monadnock Update
Orchard Hill Breadworks Launches, Raises 30% of Goal
Orchard Hill Breadworks Alstead NH 2019

Orchard Hill Breadworks successfully launched their Stone Mill for Mill Hollow campaign on The Local Crowd Monadnock this week!   Hundreds came out for their Launch Party on Tuesday and they raised $3,800 -- 30% of their overall campaign goal.

What's their Stone Mill for Mill Hollow project all about?
Orchard Hill Breadworks is raising funds to purchase a hand-built stone mill from New American Stone Mills in Elmore, Vermont.
Why a Stone Mill?
A stone mill will empower Noah and his crew at Orchard Hill Breadworks to mill grains as needed -- providing our community with better tasting, more nutritious bread while also bridging the gap between grain farmers and eaters.
Please take a look at the Orchard Hill Breadworks Campaign. Be sure to watch their video, too.
There are several ways to support this campaign. One is to give a contribution to the campaign -- click on the green "Fund Now" button on their page to get started. 
Another way to support this campaign is to purchase a reward in exchange for your contribution.  Check out the delectable rewards on the Orchard Hill Breadworks campaign page. Scroll down to the Rewards Section on the right side of the page under the "Campaign Rewards" header.

If you prefer to give "offline," please make your check out to Orchard Hill Breadworks and mail it to A Stone Mill for Mill Hollow c/o Orchard Hill Breadworks, 121 Old Settlers Rd, Alstead, NH, 03602.
Each and every donation helps make this project happen. Thank you!

Community-Based Crowdfunding Program Seeks Proposals From Social Enterprises
Emphasis on Affordable Housing, Sustainable Agriculture and Equity

The Local Crowd (TLC) Monadnock, a community-based crowdfunding program serving the entire Monadnock region and state, invites emerging and established social enterprises to submit project proposals to TLC Monadnock.

For this proposal cycle, TLC Monadnock seeks projects focusing on affordable housing, farms & food or living wage jobs & equity.  While all for-profits, non-profits and community initiatives are welcome to apply, projects addressing these community needs will receive extra campaign support and resources -- beyond what is currently provided to all TLC Monadnock campaigns.

All crowdfunding campaign teams receive hands-on technical assistance to help them launch a successful crowdfunding campaign. Campaign teams also receive a free crowdfunding assessment to ensure that they receive the coaching and training that best fits each team's needs.

TLC Monadnock will select up to six social enterprises to participate in this crowdfunding cohort, based on the potential of each project to positively impact their local economy and community.  Accepted proposals will launch their campaigns in late fall or winter.

This request for proposals is available online at proposals are due before 5:00 p.m. on September 20, 2019.
Crowdfunding is the process in which an entrepreneur, business, or organization asks a large number of people (usually through the Internet) to contribute a certain amount of money for a specific project. By leveraging the power of crowdfunding, TLC Monadnock's fundraising platform  offers an innovative way for community members to support the projects they care about.
