We’re a community-driven organization, and we value many different types of participation and support. Donating your time and expertise is appreciated and valued. Donating goods and services is appreciated and valued. Also, for those that are able, monetary donations are also appreciated and valued.
What Are Our Monthly Recurring Expenses?
Each month, we spend approximately $900 on our Community Warehouse space. This breaks down as $675 in rent, approximately $100 in utilities, approximately $100 in insurance, and approximately $25 in supplies.
Why Do We Ask for Monthly Dues Subscriptions?
Since we have a long-term commitment for $900 in monthly expenditures, we look to balance this with at least $900 in predictable monthly income. The most predictable monthly income we have available to us is from monthly dues subscriptions. Currently, we bring in approximately $100 each month from 5 people. We hope to do better. If everyone signs up for the $23/month dues level, we need approximately 40 people giving to cover our regular monthly expenses.
How Do You Sign Up for Monthly Dues Subscriptions and How Do They Work?
When you Join this website and our organization, we hope you noticed that there were multiple types of membership, each with the same level of access. Many of these different types of membership feature a monthly charge to your credit or debit card. Please note that membership type can be changed or cancelled at any time by visiting My Account.
What About Fundraisers?
Events like our annual Speakeasy fundraiser and our periodic Crawfish Boils make a huge difference. We plan to keep doing these. However, we’d love for the money raised from these to go to projects and events for the community, instead of monthly expenses. This would allow for our organization to become much more financially stable and to do more for our community.
What About One-Time Donations?
We’ll always take these gladly. We understand that every person’s circumstances are different, and perhaps you can’t make a monthly dues commitment right now. To make a one-time donation through Paypal, please use the button below. We’d also be happy to take cash donations at our Weekly Church Night.
What If You’re Not Able to Give Monetarily?
That’s totally okay. You are still very welcome and valued. There are lots of other ways to give: time, expertise, goods, services, and so on. All of our memberships, including the Free Membership, have the same level of access and privileges. We need everyone active and involved to have a strong community, and we hope you’ll be moved to participate in whatever way you can.
