Success: Monadnock Restaurant Project Crowdfunding Campaign

April 11, 2021 9:17 AM | TLC Monadnock (Administrator)

We have wonderful news to share!  We successfully completed our crowdfunding campaign for the Monadnock Restaurant Project.  We raised $30,121 from 132 donors. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!
While our campaign ended, our work continues:

  • All 600 gift cards for Phase 2 of our work were delivered to our business partners: American House, Cheshire Medical Center, Home Healthcare, Hospice & Community Services,  Keene Fire Department, Mascoma Bank, Monadnock Shopper News, Savings Bank of Walpole, 17ROX, and The Peak. Now our partners are working hard to get these gift cards in the hands of staff and community members.
  • We’re collecting the impacts of our work by reaching out to Phase 1 restaurants and business partners. Do you have a story/quote to share the reflects the impact of this project on you and our community?  Please let us know!
  • To encourage participation in A Taste of Keene Food Festival on June 5, we’re providing local restaurants with a stipend to ensure that they can cover the costs associated with providing delicious offerings during the event.

Some special thank yous:

  • Matching Challenges - Thank you to 17ROX and Savings Bank of Walpole for providing matching challenges to inspire more people to give to our crowdfunding campaign.
  • Sponsored Rewards – We thank Alexis Chesney, Laura Carbonneau, and Monadnock Food Co-op for offering sponsored rewards during our campaign.
