Invest Locally: Do your investments reflect your values?

Welcome to our May blog.  Over the next few months, we are inviting guest bloggers to talk about their passions and ways to impact invest.  This month, Hunter Hopcroft, Special Projects Manager for Ellwood Thompson’s, is writing about his work with the nationwide Slow Money movement.   Slow Money provides local farmers equitable and nimble access to capital to help them improve their businesses and strengthen our local communities.

Here's some food for thought on spending and investment choices, as well as a few interesting opportunities and resources to help you use your money for positive impact in our community.
