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
