Ecovillage Project Fund
Ekopia often seeks investment funds from members and friends of the Community to be directed into the Findhorn Ecovillage Project Share Fund. Money raised by Ekopia will be re-invested in various projects forming part of the Ecovillage Project. These currently include
- Findhorn Wind Park
- New Findhorn Directions (NFD) Chalets
- Phoenix Community Stores
- Newbold House
- Affordable Housing and Land Trust
- Drumduan House
- Social enterprise buildings
We expect to add others to the portfolio in the future.
This portfolio approach spreads the investor’s risk, and enables Ekopia to offer a more flexible investment opportunity.
Projects deemed to be high risk by the Ekopia Board will not receive funds from the Ecovillage Project Share Fund.
The minimum investment amount is £500 for one year. Interest rates are variable with returns expected to be between 3-5%.
