Slow Money aims to extend our impact as widely as possible. We are a small but industrious organization of staff and volunteers with deep commitment to community health: healthy soil, healthy food, healthy economy. Your generosity will enable various aspects of our operations including staff development, communications, nonprofit administration, Farm to School programming, event planning, facilitation of local lending projects, and more!
