When should I post updates about my project?

Steward Team Updated by Steward Team

Every Steward loan is different, so there is no set rule on how often you should be sharing updates about your project. However, using the updates feature is a great way to keep your lenders up-to-date both during and after your raise! 

Below are our suggestions on the best times to post updates. Remember to always follow Steward's messaging guidelines and have a Steward team member review your post before sending.

When to send an update

During your raise 
  • Upon reaching raise milestones (50%, 80%, 100%).
  • Any farm updates that would be interesting to lenders. For example, when crops have been planted, additional CSA shares available, new team members, etc.
After your raise
  • Send a "Thank You!" message to lenders.
  • Describe purchases made from funds raised. 
  • Announce that your first repayment has been made! 
  • Detail what's next for the business?
