One of the exquisite pleasures of launching our fundraising campaign has been connecting with the CSC Squareholders. Most Squareholders found out about Community Sourced Capital when a business or business owner they know and love asked them to participate in their loan by buying Squares. CSC wasn’t a familiar name to them when they first got introduced to the possibility of becoming a Squareholder, but once they heard about our way of building connected, community finance, they wanted to participate!
Here are some things Squareholders had to say about CSC when they first bought their Squares:
I love the concept of supporting a business that I want to see succeed because it’s existence enhances my community.
I’m really excited to be part of the Community Sourced Capital program. I may need it some day!
I love having strong local businesses and this type of micro loan arrangement makes sense to me.
More recently, we’ve heard from Squareholders when they responded about our own campaign to fund CSC’s nonprofit reemergence:
We are in! Donate all & best of luck….we’re rooting for you & CSC. ️
Congratulations on CSC’s evolution into a non-profit. Best wishes for future success in accomplishing your goals.
Happy to donate my (small) square balance to this cause. Best of luck!!
Thanks for your email. I would like to leave the balance alone for now and support a future loan. Thanks for reaching out and offering this option – I had forgotten all login info and would probably have taken no action if I hadn’t been offered the email choice.
I would love to donate the balance of my account. Thanks for all that you do!
We would like to withdraw the balance, which we will forward to our son and new daughter-in-law, who will certainly pour this gift right back into the community!
I think [Community Sourced Capital] can be life-changing. One starfish at a time. Thanks for the work you do. It matters.
During our campaign, Squareholders have made different choices about what to do with their money. And we love hearing every single story about why they made their choice. The spirit of a Squareholder is generous and connected to community. And we are so grateful! Thank you to each and every Squareholder—we love you!
