Grow your Change

Our mission: To enable anyone to make positive and lasting change to our local food ecosystem.

Our primary tools are:

  • Capital and financial services, because of their capacity to drive change at the systemic level
  • Our mutual (or cooperative) governance model, which holds us accountable to our long-term commitments
  • Our role as a connective bridge between the ecosystem's many participants.

Our values — stewardship, bridge building, and simplicity - guide everything we do, starting with our relationships with each other and emanating outwards. Systemic shifts like the ones we hope inspire start locally, with individual relationships and communities.

We may be an online bank
but we do a few things differently.

We’re putting our money where our mouth is. We believe a strong food system creates a thriving economy, environment, and culture.
