Promoting Sustainability in East Jefferson County, WA
Our mission is to build prosperous local businesses, keep investing money in our community, and help build a more resilient and sustainable economy in East Jefferson County.
LION is not a loan or investment fund, and it does not make collective investment decisions. Our membership consists of local citizens who support local businesses and invest their money locally, putting their investing money to work within our community. Keeping funds local facilitates greater economic self-sufficiency, job growth, economic development, and a dollar-multiplier effect whereby a dollar kept within the community can be spent many times over for a far greater benefit than a dollar invested away from our community.
If you are an interested local investor, we invite you to consider membership in LION. We have a simple application process that begins with a New Member Application form*. All LION members sign our Membership Agreement that details matters of procedure, confidentiality, and dispute resolution. If you have any questions, please e-mail our New Member Contact Person.

If enough members are interested, and you are open to doing so, you may be invited to present at a LION members meeting.
