I Buy Local for Dorval Campaign
Following the huge success of the first edition last summer, Commerce Dorval, in partnership with the City of Dorval, announces the launch of a second crowdfunding campaign to support Dorval businesses.
This campaign, entitled “I Buy Local for Dorval”, will take place as of April 18, 2021 and will allow people to purchase $20 vouchers for participating Dorval businesses. The City of Dorval will then add an extra $10 to each $20 voucher to offer buyers $30 to spend!
The City of Dorval is investing $25,000 in this campaign in order to improve the public’s contribution. This will allow, in the end, to inject a total of $75,000 into Dorval businesses.
For a second time, this campaign, managed by the La Ruche crowdfunding platform, will give the public the opportunity to concretely support our local businesses.
“By purchasing a voucher, people can show their active support to participating businesses for which this represents an essential source of income. It is an important gesture that has a significant meaning for them”, said Annie Lapointe, Commerce Dorval Director.
“We are truly proud to launch this incredible campaign again,” explained Dorval Mayor, Edgar Rouleau. “It’s a winning initiative for everyone involved: citizens get to have more money in their pockets, business owners receive an undeniable support, and local organizations benefit from precious financial help in order to support the population in need.”
