Community Futures of the Sunshine Coast offers financing, advising and development services to small businesses and entrepreneurs in our communities. Over the past 25 years we have contributed tens of millions in affordable, accessible financing that seeded many of the successful businesses we see on the Coast today. Community Futures has also funded community economic development projects that contribute to the rich landscape and healthy infrastructure that supports residents, business owners, employees and community organizations from Port Mellon to Egmont. We are hosting this 25th anniversary event to celebrate, with our community, the accomplishments of the past and to profile the opportunities of the future. Community Futures will continue to invest in entrepreneurs and projects that add social, ecological and economic value to the Coast. Please join us in celebrating the past and forging the future.
