Announcement

OUR INVESTMENT CLUB IS STARTING UP!!!

After years of talking about a local investment club, it's finally here, thanks to Common Good and William Spademan!

Please join us in forming the Western Mass Common Good Investment Club, giving individuals and organizations in Western Massachusetts, including individuals of average means, a way to use our savings collectively to provide funding for important community-spirited undertakings in the region, especially those undertakings that have difficulty attracting other funding, as an alternative to traditional profit-motivated investing.

The basic idea is that we each put some money in the pool, then we get together quarterly (online or in person) to make investment decisions. Common Good's investment club software will be used for convenient handling of the finances. Here is the proposed Partnership Agreement.
