Support The Transition!
Become a Founding Stakeholder

 

WHY A FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN?

Our successful transition proposal called for retiring the substantial rent debt over the course of the first two years after the transition is completed, using funds from the monthly income of the space. Our goal has been to be financially successful using that model, without the need for crowdfunding campaigns to meet regular monthly expenses.

That’s an important goal we’ve shared with the community throughout the proposal process.

 

WHAT HAS CHANGED?

  • Community members have asked if they could help donate to retire the debt earlier.
  • As part of the lease negotiations, the landlord has asked that we retire the debt by the end of 2022, in half the time we had originally proposed.
  • Retiring the debt sooner will allow us to begin making space and accessibility improvements sooner. 
  • A financial reserve will help us weather another seasonal COVID-19 surge or future emergency situation.

Between the “startup costs” of transition, the debt service, and the need for what our fabulous financial consultant calls “prudent reserves,” the Transform1060 team has recognized that a capital campaign can help us start out better equipped for long-term success.


OUR GOALS

Our goal is to raise $100,000 by March31, 2022.

$25,000 by December 31, 2021
Another $25,000 by January 31, 2022
Remaining $50,000 by March 31, 2022


Yes, it’s a lot. We’re asking for the ideal amount — enough to ensure a smooth transition financially and retire a large portion of the rent debt. Some of the funds would be retained as those “prudent reserves.” We hope to reach our goal, but even getting part-way there will help retire the debt, build a reserve, and start planning for improvements. 

 

WHAT ABOUT THOSE DONATION LEVELS?

It’s been a rough couple of years for the world and for our communities. Many folks are still struggling. California is being careful in reopening the economy, which is great — but that means many members of our community just don’t have funds to share. 


here’s what we’re asking: 

 

Become a founding stakeholder in the new space, by attending, volunteering, or hosting an event in the first 60 days after the transition.

 

If you have $10 or $25 to give, we ask you to spend it on party admission or an event ticket. See our STAKEHOLDER PLEDGE page for more information about how to get involved as a founding stakeholder.

If you are in a position to give more generously, we have donation levels ranging from $100-20,000.  For as little as $100, you can choose a brick to dedicate. More generous donors can dedicate a piece of equipment, a room, or the entire courtyard. 

Our donations levels between $100-1000 are being managed through Paypal. If you would prefer to donate another way, please use the “Custom Amount” link. 


Transform1060 is a California Public Benefit Corporation and a sponsored 501(c)3 organization. Your donations are tax-deductible.
