Electric Works Public Market Trust is an independent, tax-exempt nonprofit organization established in 2022 to monitor and support Union Street Market. The Trust informs the community about the Market’s performance in (1) supporting farmers and food producers of Northeast Indiana, (2) enhancing community wellness, and (3) providing access to healthy foods.
Based on its research and engagement with the community, the Trust provides advice and input to Market management about ways to make Union Street Market an even more valuable community asset.
As a tax-exempt entity, the Trust can solicit and receive donations and grants to further its educational and charitable purposes, including programs to expand food access for underserved local residents and provide cooking classes for kids and families.
Interested in learning more or helping to support the Trust’s work? Please contact the Trust at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Electric Works Public Market Trust is governed by a volunteer board of directors, with six members appointed by the Allen County Capital Improvement Board, two members selected by the Electric Works development team, and up to five other members by the board itself.
Board members are committed to supporting the Market’s mission and working in partnership with Market management and merchants to create a world-class food market that provides substantial benefits to the local economy and that improves the community’s wellness.
