Have an idea that could use a lift?

  • Do you have an incredible project, just waiting to happen -- if you only had the funds to launch it?
  • Will your project support community goals, while keeping to a budget of $10,000 or less?
  • Are you, or is your business or organization, based in Alstead, Chesterfield, Hinsdale, Jaffrey, Keene, Peterborough, Swanzey or Winchester?

Then please consider funding your project through The Local Crowd Monadnock. The Local Crowd Monadnock is a locally based crowdfunding platform helping start-up ventures, early-growth stage companies and community-focused projects find access to capital.
