Weʼre raising £20,000 to fund Community Ownership of Cairngorm Mountain
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Cairngorm has gone bust twice now in 10 years, clearly it's time for a new direction. At this point we believe HIE must take Cairngorm Mountain back into their ownership as soon as possible , it's essential that we protect jobs and have the ski centre up and running for this season. We would then like to see a transition to community ownership of the operating company within the next couple of years. This is not simple, it's essential that the community feels ownership, but equally that the operating company can act independently day to day, there are also large working capital requirements to enable the business to run effectively. AGCT has been working hard to address these issues and we hope now to work cooperatively with HIE, stakeholders and staff to create a business model that will allow us all to move forward positively.
