Second Roosevelt location coming to Franklinton and a grant from the Columbus Foundation.
One of the things we’re most excited to share is our expansion into a second location. We’ll be coming to the new Gravity Project, a mixed-use community located at 500 W. Broad in East Franklinton. We were chosen as the coffee shop to anchor Gravity because we align with the project’s social impact mission. As you see in the picture this whole space is birthed in artistry. We will be directly below the four story mural!
We’re expecting the second location to double our impact. A second shop means a wider reach, especially by tapping into the traffic that Gravity generates by being home to over 230 apartments, retail and restaurants, and other community-minded tenants, like Pelotonia and Cova Cowork.
The Columbus Foundation invested in our vision at Gravity, awarding the Roosevelt $75K through its Fund for Financial Innovation grant. We’re honored to receive this grant. It’ll go a long way toward helping us furnishing the space.
But we still need to raise $200K in capital funds to open our doors at Gravity. We’re hitting the fundraising trail, with the goal of securing what we need by May. Your donation now can help us keep overhead low and borrow the least amount of money possible. We believe every shop is an extension of you and your generosity. The possibilities are endless with your continued support. Did you know you can support us monthly for as little as a dollar? And the easiest way in the world to support us is by way of your Kroger shopping. Choose our non-profit name, Redeeming Injustice, and Kroger donates a portion of your shopping quarterly to us. If we had a 1,000 families doing that we would be quickly driving more impact.
