You Can Help Gemeinschaft Home's "Raise The Roof" Campaign With A $1000 Loan
Gemeinschaft Home just approved installing a much needed new metal roof on the back of the house that should last for a lifetime. To raise the $33,000 needed for this project, which also includes some necessary work on the front porch, we are soliciting three-year, interest-free loans of $1000 or more, all to be repaid by the end of 2020. Of course, outright gifts are also welcomed and appreciated. You will receive a promissory note for the full amount to be redeemed by December 31, 2020.
We did a similar "loan-raising" campaign in 2011 to fund an efficient furnace system to heat and provide hot water for the home, which has resulted in significant cost savings to the program. At the end of the three-year period, everyone who loaned money was repaid in full from a fund that Gemeinschaft created and added to for this purpose each month (Some individuals chose at the end to turn their loan into a gift).
