Your checking account gives your bank collateral to make investments that probably don’t align with your values.
To provide an alternative for this basic “investment,” we launched a “Slow Money NYC” Account as a pilot project with Brooklyn Cooperative Credit Union, guaranteeing right way that your deposits will generate loans for local, small businesses and gradually increasing the number of loans to small sustainable food ventures with input from leadership of Slow Money NYC.
Since our soft launch on October 15,2011, we have amassed $25,000 in deposits in Slow Money NYC accounts! A small but significant step. Now, it’s your turn: MOVE YOUR MONEY TODAY!
