I admit it's foreign but I don't know any other intentional community that's crowdfunding to expand.
This is the relatively famous Twin Oaks Community, core of the Federation of Egalitarian Communities. They are 90+ adults on 350+ acreas in central Virginia, founded 1967. The reason they're asking is that they've just invested considerably to expand their main business and they're a little strung out financially; on the other hand the parcel they want has just been clearcut for the second time in 20 years, is on the market and adjoins them; they don't want some developer putting up condos on it and they can use it.
Disclosure: a friend of 45 years standing lives there. I visited in 1972.
