Now is the Time. . .
We’ve all been working for so long on preparations for buying the land at Shakori Hills. We (and when we say “we,” you are included) have now reached our goal of raising $75,000, which is 10% of the full purchase price, in order to make a down payment on the land here! This is very exciting and a landmark step in the journey, but it is only the beginning. The next step is even more important!
At this time, we are pleased to offer our supporters the first opportunity to invest in the group that will loan The Shakori Hills Community Arts Center the money to complete the purchase. We are calling it a Community Owned Mortgage.
The entire investment will be backed by a secured promissory note and a mortgage on the property, and will pay a rate of return of 5% annual interest, with a $10K minimum investment. Investors will know that their money will be directly benefiting our families and community rather than big corporations or distant ideas.
If you are interested in this investment opportunity, please call us at 919-542-1746 or send an email and we will get you more information. Our success in securing the Shakori Hills Community Arts Center for now and the future generations relies upon all of us pulling together, so please pass this information to everyone else you think might be interested. We want everyone to have the opportunity to participate!
We look forward to doing this together! Click HERE to read more about our story, or HERE to make a donation towards the land purchase.
