OFC Investment Club
At the request of the members, The OFC has created an investment club exclusive to members. The long term mandate of this collective is to create an independent financial institution. In the interim the club is dedicated to pooling their money together to invest in real estate.
The current land development initiative is the OFC Holistic Healing and Wellness Retreat and the establishment of a cultural based district, similar to a “China Town”, or the former “Black Wall Street” that was located in Tulsa, Oklahoma. These real estate developments will serve as a legacy to the future generations and as a collateral for the future financial institution.
To date the collective has independently raised over $40,000 towards the creation of their initiative. Members sharing a desire to pool their money together to establish an economic foundation are welcome to join. (Join here)
