The FairBuck project was started to support a vibrant local economy and to raise awareness of the importance of supporting local businesses. This year, the FairBuck project moved into an exciting new phase. The token has been so successful, that we've been able to start awarding small grants for community projects. So far, we have helped fund the Streets for People event, the Fairfax Bicycle Mosaic, and the purchase of new supplies for the Fairfax-San Ansemlo Children's Center.
You can support local economy and give back to your community by purchasing Fairbucks, using them in spending every day, and by taking advantage of special deals on FairBuck Fridays.
