WHAT IS COMMUNITY WAY Community Way is an innovative system that connects local Businesses, Charitable Organizations, and Individuals in a mutually beneficial three-way partnership. Local Businesses often lose out on potential income due to their unused capacity, Charitable Organizations lose out on potential income because community members\' budgets are spread too thin, and individuals find themselves unable to support the organizations they value due to lack of funds. Community Way provides a system that turns these liabilities into assets for Businesses, Charitable Organizations, and Individuals alike. By issuing Community Credits to Charitable Organizations, Businesses turn their unused capacity into a powerful fundraising tool for the Organizations and a powerful loyalty program for themselves, without any upfront cash costs. Charitable Organizations can sell Community Credits to Individuals to fund projects, or spend them directly with Businesses using the Community Way system to pay their own expenses. Businesses can also spend Community Credits with other Businesses using the system, turning unused capacity directly into goods and services. And by buying Community Credits from Charitable Organizations, Individuals can give at an unprecedented level, knowing those Credits are redeemable at any Business using the Community Way system. What\'s more, Businesses cover their costs by setting the percentage of CCs they are willing to accept in payment for any purchase. For example, a restaurant accepting 50% CCs would accept cc10 + $10 for a $20 meal.                                                 *                  *                  * WHAT AM I SIGNING Each individual and organization that uses the system increases the strength of Community Way. We want you to be a part of this, and we need your help to get it started! If you want to see this system actively engaged in your community, or if you are interested in using the Community Way system yourself, please add your name to our Declaration of Support! We, the undersigned, declare our enthusiastic support for Community Way, a new and community-building approach to creating a prosperous local economy:
