We have four goals for 2018:

1. Officially launch Slow Money Central Virginia at a series of events in Richmond and Charlottesville in May.

2. Receive enough pledge commitments from charitable donors to enable us to make a loan in the fall. (We will provide more details soon on what our pledge goal is.)

3. Make at least one loan to a farm in the fall of 2018, and hopefully more!

4. Position the organization to grow significantly in 2019.

  ----------------

In the long term we expect to do the following in Central Virginia:

  1. Grow acres under cultivation

  2. Increase farm employment

  3. Catalyze new farms

  4. Improve access to land for young farmers

  5. Enable farmers to relinquish off-farm income to support themselves and their families
