spreading Christa's cunt ever wider in its wake.  Both of her hands came
 
down to grip the base of his cock as she looked down in disbelief. At
 
least six inches were outside of her now, and she had taken him nearly all
 
the way before. Curt opened his eyes and stared in disbelief. He was
 
growing even faster this time!  His cumming continued to make him buck
 
like a bronco as his shaft grew ever more horse-like.  Thicker and longer
 
-twined with huge, thick veins- his erection plowed into Christa's tight
 
bush like a dog trying to fit into a rabbit hole.

hurt her.  Her moaning and bucking were intense and -just before he could-
 
he felt himself hit a massive climax.  Rigid, he watched as his cock
 
rocketed upwards in size, spreading her cunt lips and making her squeal
 
half in pain, half in ecstasy.  His balls pumped and churned as they lay
 
heavy on his thighs.  In shock he looked at them, tangled in their mass of
 
pubic hair.  Each was larger than a large grapefruit!  His shaft had to be
 
at least three and a half inches across and nearly sixteen inches long!
 
The spasm began to fade, but the tingling in his balls remained.  Orgasm
 
subsiding, Curt felt his body grow limp in its wake.

Gobs of his cum dripped from Christa's stretched cunt as she panted for
 
breath and rubbed her delicate hands over Curt's chest.  Opening her eyes,
 
she glanced at Curt's waist and shook her head slowly.  "God, Curt...  I
 
don't believe it." She smiled, and nuzzled the smaller man's neck -her
 
glistening breasts pressing against his chest.  "Th' bigger th' better,
 
I've always said...  I don't think I've Ever been this turned-on!"
 
  
Curt returned her smile and kissed Christa gently on the cheek.

He tenderly stroked her breasts, fingertips lingering on her aureoles and
 
nipples.  "Yeah, but any bigger and only a Clydesdale would be able to
 
take all of me..."
 
  
Christa shrugged as she nestled into the size of Curt's body.

"Maybe," she said conspiratorially, "that wouldn't be all that bad." With
 
that cryptic remark, Christa closed her eyes and gently drifted off to an
 
erotic sleep.

endowments were extremely obvious.  His penis hung all the way to his
 
knees and was nearly as thick as a peppermill.  Still, that was the least
 
of his problems.  It was possibly due to the extreme exposure his balls
 
had been given to the original formula, but they'd been growing at an even
 
faster rate than the rest of him.  Each was the size of a grapefruit and
 
always seemed to carry the tell-tale signs of that tingling sensation
 
-together they spanned nearly a foot from side-to-side in front of his
 
groin.  It wasn't easy to conceal his massive endowments.
 
  
It also hadn't been easy to resist Christa's advancements.  She

was so turned on by his recent growth, he wasn't sure she would ever stop
 
making him bigger.  She'd offered to tit-fuck him if he ever got too big,
 
and to masturbate him if it went much further beyond that.  Curt had to
 
admit, it was extremely tempting...  But until he knew he could reverse
 
the formula, he didn't dare give himself over to that temptation...
 
  
Not when the last growth spurt had so radically increased his

his dorm room, but squeezing into a pair of Zubas whenever he had a class.
 
Still, he got stares and more than a few proposals from some of the
 
prettier women (and a few of the guys) in BioChem lab. Still, he'd almost
 
had to cash in on a few of those "favors" to get help swiping the
 
necessary compounds from the storage locker.  Luckily, with his standing
 
in class, it was easy to stay late "working" on a project and being
 
allowed to "lock-up" after himself.
 
  
Now, after about a week, he thought he may have the solution.

semen production.  In other words, the more he came, the bigger he got.
 
Curt also thought that he may get bigger if his cock was in direct contact
 
with a woman's vaginal juices.  Why that would be the case was still a
 
mystery to him ... in addition to the twin questions of where the extra
 
mass had come from so quickly and why he could still get 16" erections as
 
easily as 3 inches...  Technically, the blood requirements would be too
 
high, and he should've been getting light-headed.
 
  
His cursory examination of himself showed a development of muscle

and ligament tissue along the length of his shaft, and that could account
 
for his amazing erections, but he couldn't confirm it. Nonetheless, he
 
thought as he looked at the light blue liquid, this seemed to be
 
appropriate to reverse whatever effects had been caused by the original
 
fluid.  Christa wouldn't be happy, but he had to think of living a normal
 
life rather than a horse-like stud!  Still, it wouldn't hurt for one last
 
time.

Christa's car at her parent's cabin on Lake Hutton. The sky was clear and
 
the deeper blue that comes with Evening in Northern Minnesota; the
 
reflection of the sun off the narrow stream that bubbled down the hill
 
next to the cabin into the lake was enchanting.  Christa was still
 
somewhat down since he'd told her that he had developed the reverse
 
formula and would use it after they had made out this last time.  As she
 
had said, she really liked men who were freakishly large...
 
  
Curt had just smiled past the word "freakishly" and let it go at
 
that.
 
  
Christa opened the door to the family "hunting lodge" and set down

Notes:
the bag of groceries on the counter nearby.  The place was huge.  Curt let
 
out a low whistle of breath as he surveyed the scene.  At least ten
 
trestle tables filled the room beyond the small kitchen in a grand hall
 
that reminded him of Beowulf's "Herot".  A small balcony ran around the
 
room about a story overhead and numerous small doors led off from the main
 
hall into the private bedrooms that filled this place.  Christa hadn't
 
been kidding when she'd told him her father had liked to hunt with a "few"
 
friends every autumn.

and their equipment was something she hadn't mentioned.  Nearby, a wooden
 
sign declared the room rates for the weekend during hunting season.
 
Apparently, her father also made a tidy sum on the place too...

needed, but it wasn't as concentrated as the original formula. He'd just
 
have to keep adding it until he got it right.  Christa shook her head.  
 
  
"Y'know, guys all over the country would kill to have your problem;

and you're going to give it all up..."
 
  
Curt shook his head with a crooked grin.  "Well, if I get any
 
bigger, I'll start having problems walking.  The idea of being hung like
 
the Eifel Tower may interest me, but not until I can get things under
 
control!" He chuckled and started bringing in the suitcases from the
 
porch.  Christa simply grinned as she watched him work and the mass of his
 
groin shift around in his pants.
 
  
Curt finished putting the suitcases in one bedroom and turned to

join Christa back in the kitchen.  She stood not far from him with her
 
back to the broad double-doors.  Curt started feeling nervous again.
 
Sheesh!  She was insatiable!  Slowly, she pulled off her sweater revealing
 
her massive, heavy assets.  Slowly, she swung the doors shut behind her
 
and sauntered towards Curt.  Running her fingers along the side of his
 
neck, she gently pushed him backwards towards the bed.
 
  
"Christa..."

She shushed him with a single finger and kissed him lightly on the

lips.  "Shhh...  If we're gonna make the most of this weekend, we're
 
starting now..."
 
  
Slowly, Christa pushed him down, lay provocatively on top of
+

Curt's body, and rested her ample breasts in his hands.  Curt happily
 
stroked and fondled them as Christa gently massaged Curt's 16-incher
 
through the material of his jeans.  Curt drew three rapid, deep breaths of
 
shuddering pleasure as Christa's talented fingers probed his
 
grapefruit-sized balls.  As she bent her face down to plant her lips on
 
his, she deftly undid his button-fly Zubas and pulled down his underwear.
 
  
At first, his massive organ got caught in the elastic binder,
+
$10,704.66 for Noisetor (SEE NOISETOR NOTE)
making him wince slightly.  Christa smiled at his expression and pulled
 
back from his eager hands to watch what she was doing more carefully.
 
Gently, she licked his engorged knob and pulled his pants off the rest of
 
his legs.  More quickly then, she removed his shirt and the rest of her
 
own clothing so the two rested naked on the king-sized bed.  Curt's
 
enormous flagpole stood at attention to Christa's ministrations as she
 
licked his knob and repeatedly squeezed his semen-heavy balls.  The
 
tingle, which had been there constantly since the last time they made out,
 
started to increase even more.  
 
  
Slowly though, Christa pulled her mouth away from his cock and
+
$437.64 in the Equipment Fund
slowly rubbed it down her naked chest, between her breasts and gradually
 
across her flat, tight belly. Rising to her knees, she slowly lowered
 
herself down around the monster organ with a look of ecstatic glee on her
 
face.  Curt couldn't say anything.  It felt too good.  He just hoped she'd
 
be able to handle what he became next...
 
  
Grinding slowly against her cunt, Curt watched as she devoured

inch after inch of his manhood. Five inches; then seven.  Finally ten,
 
eleven and twelve.  Curt could feel the round end of his prick start
 
bouncing against the inner wall of Christa's cervix, as she took in all
 
she could length-wise.  Lowering her hands to the six inches remaining
 
outside, she stroked his erection as she fucked the upper foot.  Still the
 
tingling grew.
 
  
With a deep moan, Curt could feel the spunk churning in his balls.

"Watch ... watch out ... Christa. <pant> Here ... here <grunt!> I ...
 
cum...!" The pressure exploded inside him and spread along his shaft with
 
lighting unlike any in the previous experiences.  Curt watched as his rod
 
began to grow again.  And grow...

scarcely believe it.  He watched as his once-small penis broke all
 
boundaries.  Past eighteen inches ... past twenty...  Curt's balls bucked
 
and pumped their contents into Christa's vagina with a force like a garden
 
hose.  Spurts of semen squirted from around his embedded cock as it grew
 
wider and thicker; stretching Christa's cunt ever further.  Christa wasn't
 
getting off...  She stayed glued to his boner, riding it like a horse and
 
crying out in ecstasy as she was expanded beyond belief.
 
  
Twenty-two inches passed and twenty-four neared as Christa was

forced halfway to her feet by the rapid progression.  Curt's cock, now at
 
least four inches across continued to expand.  Curt gasped as his gaze
 
settled farther down.  His balls were enormous.
 
  
The two large sacks bounced and jiggled like bowling-ball sized
 
water balloons!  More and more cum leaked from Christa's orifice as she
 
rode and bucked with Curt's hips.  Finally, with a look of pain -or
 
perhaps resignation at attempting the impossible- Christa pushed with all
 
her strength against the bed and pulled her cunt off Curt's expanding
 
member.  Cum spurted up her body, across her tits and drenching her hair.
 
Still growing, Curt watched with awe as his balls and rod expanded well
 
into the stallion range of size.  Another minute passed and slowly, ever
 
so slowly, Curt felt the pressure ease and the tingle return to its
 
normal, background level.
 
  
Weary and panting, Curt closed his eyes and lay back on the bed.
+
Notes:
He could feel his still-stiff pole waving in the gentle breeze of the
 
air-conditioning.  Absently, he felt Christa touch his rod softly.  He
 
opened his eyes to watch her gently measure along his length and then his
 
balls.  She was covered in sweat, cum and excitement.  She looked more
 
turned-on than Curt thought a person could look.
 
  
She glanced up triumphantly.  "My God Curt!  You've broken all the

records!  Twenty-six inches long ... twenty-six, Curt!  Your balls are as
 
big as basketballs and your width is," she measured quickly across his
 
still engorged knob, "six inches across!" She glanced down at the base of
 
his rod and smiled.  "An' that's only the tip ... you're at least a good
 
two inches thicker at the base!" Wiping a handful of cum off her face,
 
Christa proceeded to slowly slurp it up.  "You always make the best
 
dinners," she said coyly.

across his lap. It took a full two minutes for the erection to go down.
 
Gingerly, so as not to knock his giant's balls against his knees, his
 
swung his feet over the bedside.  His dick must've weighed close to
 
fifteen pounds!  Swinging it over the edge, he could feel it pull heavily
 
against his midsection and his balls knock together enticingly.  Curt
 
winced as the tingle got momentarily stronger.  He could almost feel
 
himself start to rise to attention again.  Gritting his teeth and forcing
 
himself to remain un-aroused, Curt patted Christa's shoulder.  "Look ...
 
it's getting tough to resist more sex.  Can you get the formula in here
 
now?"
 
  
Broken from her size-induced revelry in Curt's cum, Christa looked

momentarily distracted and crestfallen.  Then, with a slow, weary nod of
 
her head, she walked out of the room to return after a minute with Curt's
 
mason-jar-sized beaker. "Well," he said as he dipped a corner of the bed
 
sheet into the mixture, "say 'goodbye' to 'junior'..." With that, he began
 
dabbing the blue liquid over his penis and testicles.  It didn't seem to
 
be drying right away, like the first formula, but it did stain his skin
 
similarly.  After several minutes of generous application, Curt lay back
 
on the bed and waited.

'Like last time...' The thought raced through his head.  Christa

formula, it needed stimulation to work ... this time may be the same."
 
Christa nodded, a small smile growing on her face as she realized where
 
this was heading.  "I also used a concentrated version.  I want to know if
 
you'd like to give me a little ... hand here."
 
  
Christa's smile broadened as she nodded assent.  She moved to a
+

position straddling Curt's chest and planted both her arms above his
 
shoulders.  "Sure ... but this time," she made a rapid motion behind his
 
field of vision, "we do it my way." In a second, a loose strap had been
 
looped around each of Curt's wrists, pinning his arms in place above his
 
head, attached to the headboard.  Quickly (and accidentally stepping on
 
one of Curt's balls in the process), she likewise snared his feet and tied
 
them in place.
 
  
"Christa?  What're you..."
+

"Hold on Curt!" she interrupted. "Let me try this...  Do you agree

to let me pump you off until you shrink down to a more manageable size?"
 
  
Curt's brow furrowed as he tried to figure out what Christa was

getting at.  After all, it was obvious that was what he had just asked
 
her.  Slowly, he answered, "yes..." She smiled triumphantly.  
 
  
"Just remember you said that..." And she started to lick and pump

him back to a full erection.  Curt moaned in pleasure, and watched her as
 
she went.  It took two hands, but after a few minutes, she stopped and
 
left the room.  A minute later, she returned with a massive, six-foot tall
 
foam-rubber cylinder attached to a pulley and some rope.  Still smiling,
 
she looped the pulley up and over the ceiling beam that crossed the room
 
twelve feet overhead.  Then, she tied the ropes -around the bed frame
 
beneath him- to Curt's hips.  Finally, she pulled the suspended cylinder
 
down and slid it over Curt's erection.  Fastening hit around his hips as
 
well.  The whole system was tight.
 
  
With a smile and gentle pull on the tube, she said "Let the games
+
$179.77 in the Elevator Repair Fund
begin..."
 
  
The tube descended along Curt's shaft, erotically caressing its
+
$358.92 in the Sewing Fund
entire length like a giant cunt. Hell, Curt thought, I've even got room
 
to spare!  As he automatically pumped his hips against the sensuous
 
pressure, the tube moved in response, pumping him even more.  Between his
 
legs, Christa fondled and licked his balls.  The tingle began to increase,
 
as he neared orgasm.  Forcing his head to watch, should he lock in ecstasy
 
again, Curt glanced at his glans to see the reduction take place.
 
  
It didn't. Instead, he began to grow again.  Inwardly, he
+

screamed denial as the erotic sensations clouded his mind and sent it
 
spiraling to new heights of ecstasy.  Now, his erection truly resembled a
 
horse-sized schlong.  Even bigger.  As he pumped and came, he watched the
 
base thicken across his midsection, soon reaching a diameter of at least
 
ten inches.  He could feel by the rubbing against the inside of the tube
 
that his cock was at least a foot longer.  Christa laughed in delight.
 
Curt's balls had expanded to beach-ball size.  There was no way he could
 
walk now ... not at least without a wheelbarrow to carry his dick around
 
in.  Far above at the top of the tube, he could see a garbage bag billow
 
out from the top, collecting the cum that had shot up that far.
 
  
The harness kept pumping.

Curt clenched his eyes shut as another shudder ran though him.  As
 
confused, betrayed and angered as he was with Christa, the sensations of
 
erotic pleasure, began to overwhelm his mind.  Dully, he began to enjoy
 
the helpless growth...  Christa walked up to where he lay, gyrating on the
 
bed and gently lowered her breasts over his face.  Tentatively, Curt's
 
tongue wandered over her lush surface, searching out the sweat and salt on
 
her skin.  Smiling, she gradually pulled backwards and grabbed her
 
sweater.
 
  
Curt looked at her confused.  "Christa...?"

feeling in her heart. She'd taken her time shopping for the groceries

she put the groceries away and pulled off her clothes.  Sultrily, she
 
walked towards the door.
 
  
And stepped in cum.

Surprised, she looked down at the eight-foot diameter puddle that

oozed from under the door.  Holy shit, she thought, how far had he gone?
 
She'd only been gone a couple hours...  Rapidly she flung open the doors
 
and then stood, staring in erotic fascination.  Large droplets of cum
 
covered the ceiling, support beams, walls, bed and windows. The puddle in
 
the room was about six inches deep and still warm.  Curt had really grown.
 
  
The foam rubber tube was stretched thicker and longer by an amount

even Christa hadn't expected.  The pulley's still worked, but very
 
slightly ... Curt's hips couldn't lift up against his five-foot diameter
 
testicles enough to provide much pull to the pulleys.  His cock, massive
 
enough when she'd left, strained at it's foam rubber prison ... three full
 
feet across and sixteen feet long!  Massive, blue veins crisscrossed his
 
massive erection, still pulsing with his last ejaculation. Little Curt
 
was barely visible beyond the monster that had become his genitalia.  Like
 
a tiny bug on a much larger animal, Curt looked sweaty, tired and ...
 
aroused.
 
  
He smiled gently at her as she stepped tenuously into his field of

vision.  "I knew you'd get back." He glanced his eyes over the length of
 
his penis.  "Long line at Rainbow?"
 
  
Christa smiled and bent forward to lick the cum from his chest,

face and hair.  The large plastic bag she'd put over the top of the tube
 
had long since ruptured spraying its contents over the room. His semen
 
was still warm and delicious.  She wrapped her arms around his body and
 
undid the straps.  Slowly, she removed the equipment and peeled the last
 
remains of the foam-rubber tube from his pulsing member.  God, was it
 
huge!
 
  
With trepidation, she pulled it down and gave it a tiny lick on

the underside of it's head. Slowly, she rubbed up and down the length of
 
his shaft, reveling in the warm feel of the smooth flesh and warm cum
 
glistening on its broad surface.  She turned to Curt, "well, I got my
 
wish...  Wait here..." With that, she left the room.
 
  
Curt raised an eyebrow. "Where would I go?"

Notes:

Our regular recurring income looks like $12,700 per month, based on April. That's a big jump! We need to get to $20,000 to be sustainable.
  
A second later she returned.  Curt could hear her enter, but

couldn't see past his own softening erection.  After cumming six times in
 
the last two hours, he was still horny ... it was strange but oddly
 
pleasurable.  Vaguely, he wondered if he'd ever be un-horny again.  
 
  
Christa walked into his view holding his jar. With a smile she

shrugged, "I guess you've earned this..." Slowly, she moved to start
 
dabbing it on his erection.
 
  
"Wait."
+
We paid our rent for May, and paid Scandiuzzi Krebs $2,000 for the first installment for their discovery document. They're professional fundraisers who will help us develop a strategy to get grants and more recurring donations.
  
Surprised, Christa looked up.
+
We've begun purchasing snacks and drinks in bulk for the space, available for suggested donations. We want to buy another pallet of Club Mate soon. We put in an order for more stickers and t-shirts, which should hopefully arrive in time for Maker Faire.

He laughed at her expression.  "Well, what did you expect?  I thought you
 
wanted to see how big I could get?  Let's see what this baby can do..."
 
  
Christa smiled slowly and put the jar down on the floor. Making

sure that the bed had rollers she opened the double doors to the main
 
hall. They'd need plenty of room for what she had in mind...
 
  
Curt dropped the steaming spaghetti noodles into the strainer and
 
ran water over them to wash off the excess starch.  With flair, he flopped
 
the whole, steaming mass into a serving dish and brought it over to the
 
table in the middle of his small dorm room.  The neighbors might complain
 
about the smell of cooking Italian food, but he didn't really care.
 
  
His over-sized Zubas still took some getting used to, as did the
 
huge three-footer tucked away beneath them.  With balls the size of
 
volleyballs it was difficult to hide what he'd become, but he'd have to
 
learn to live with it.  Christa watched him walk with amusement and a
 
seductive gleam in her eye.  Now that he was guaranteeably bigger than
 
anything on two legs, she was always in the mood.
 
  
It was three weeks later.

Notes:
 +
 
 +
We’ve paid our rent for November. Our lease is up at the end of August 2018, and not getting renewed. We probably need to raise a bunch of money to move somewhere else.
 +
 
 +
Some major general fund purchases: We paid to renew our PO box ($490) and our board directors insurance ($1,009). We also paid a $50 fine to the state of California for some paperwork snafu.
 +
 
 +
This running total takes into account Noisetor’s donations since October 5 and their 5% contribution to the general fund for fiscal sponsorship, as well as any hosting payments since then.
 +
 
 +
Royalty payments were added to the Thomas J. Shutt Memorial Foundation, and $125 was spent to file articles of incorporation for an independent nonprofit registered in the state Pennsylvania. Those papers were accepted, so we’re getting an EIN and applying for a 501(c)(3) federal tax exemption.
 +
 
 +
$358 in cash donations were added to the laser maintenance fund.
 +
 
 +
The Elevator Repair Fund was created and seeded with $200 by consensus. Some call button light replacements were ordered with a matching grant from the Equipment Fund.
 +
 
 +
The Accessibility Fund was created and seeded with $200 by a city requirement to spend an additional 20% of the cost of any new construction on accessibility improvements. These funds will be allocated by recommendation of the accessibility working group (TBD), which will prioritize the voices of people who are most affected by accessibility problems with the space.
 +
 
 +
The Roguelike Celebration has spent $2,062.50 on socks and $531 on metal pins. This event used to be hosted at Noisebridge and still raises money through Noisebridge’s financial infrastructure in exchange for a big donation. We will need to account for all roguelike income and expenses at some point; right now it’s all clumped into the general fund.
 +
 
 +
We have a $1,737 payment to Jakprints on October 26, possibly for stickers and t-shirts, but maybe for the Roguelike Celebration. I think this is our usual printer for t-shirts. @patrickod or @maltman23 may be able to confirm if these printing costs are for Noisebridge (general fund) or the Roguelike Celebration (which will be accounted for separately).
 +
 
 +
One caveat about the numbers in this report: It’s possible that Noisetor revenue since October 9 is missing, and their regularly scheduled hosting payment didn’t go through. If some revenue is reallocated to Noisetor, that would decrease the general fund total and increase the Noisetor total, without changing our overall bank balance. When their hosting payment goes through, that will decrease the Noisetor total and our overall bank balance by $1,547.

“Critical expenses” include rent, utilities, Internet, trash collection, insurance, accounting fees, legal fees, bank fees, and state business registration fees, but does not include drink purchases, t-shirt or sticker printing, or payments for repairs and consumables. Critical expenses add up to around $6,000 per month.

Eventbrite is starting to send us money for the next Roguelike Celebration, which we’re fiscally sponsoring again this year. They’ll be making a 5% donation of their revenue to Noisebridge’s general fund, which they estimate will be around $500, but that may be higher or lower. If they have a surplus when it’s all said and done, we’ll keep it in the bank as the “Roguelike Celebration fund,” for use at the next event. All of the expenses and revenue will be forwarded to treasurer@noisebridge.net for me to crunch the numbers. Until I actually crunch those numbers, though, I’m going to just treat all suspected Roguelike revenue (like mysterious Eventbrite deposits) as “general fund” for the purposes of these financial reports.

We recently spent $379.74 from the equipment fund and $379.73 from the project-specific donations to the general fund to purchase a MakerBot Ultimate 3D Printer. There is currently a fundraiser for a Prusa I3.
 +
 
 +
We just paid our rent for October, so our new post-rent baseline is $42,552. Our previous baseline (September 1st) was $40,054.28, which means that the general fund grew by nearly $2,000 this month.
 +
 
 +
That gain is even more impressive considering we took a dip of $2,500 to buy all of that Club Mate near the beginning of the month and still have about 2/5 of it left.
 +
 
 +
The expected return on the remaining Club Mate is about $1,200-$1,300.
 +
 
 +
So if we count our chickens before they hatch, our general fund grew by $3,200 - $3,300 this month.

Notes:
 +
 
 +
This running total takes into account Noisetor’s donations since September 12th and their 5% contribution to the general fund for fiscal sponsorship. It also takes into account new royalty payments to Thomas’ foundation.
 +
 
 +
We got another big deposit ($1,037.53) into our checking account from Eventbrite. We don’t know why they keep giving us money, but it’s great!
 +
 
 +
We spent $587.04 from the broadcast fund for A/V, staging, and lighting equipment for the Noisebridge 10th Anniversary Exhibition & Ball (#NB10). Each of the five performers for #NB10 were paid $200 from door and drinks donations, for a total of $1,000. We made several reimbursements from the equipment fund as well related to #NB10. Drinks and other remaining expenses were paid for out of the general fund. The event was extremely net revenue positive for the space.
 +
 
 +
Miscellaneous #NB10 expenses are described here: https://noisebridge.net/wiki/NB10-Misc-Expenses-Tally
 +
 
 +
Reimbursed drink expenses were $929.96, mostly reflected in totals from previous financial reports. Total expenses from the event add up to $3,639.24, not counting Club Mate consumed. The bartenders estimated 5 boxes, or 100 bottles, of Club Mate were consumed, previously purchased with general fund money at an estimated total cost of $315. $587.04 of that came from the broadcast fund. $638.01 of that came from the equipment fund. $2,729.19 came from the general fund, inclusive of the estimated cost of Club Mate consumed.
 +
 
 +
Our total revenue over the long weekend was $4,988.60. Subtracting expenses that were reimbursed from the general fund, the general fund increased by $2,259.41 over the weekend. Subtracting all expenses, our overall total accounts increased by $1,034.36. But spending money from the equipment fund and broadcast fund is a good thing! That money is meant to be spent.
 +
 
 +
(Note: Because this takes into account the estimated cost of Club Mate consumed, technically our cash accounts increased by $1,359.36, and the cash in our general fund increased by $2,574.41. But I think the cost of Club Mate should be included in the accounting for the event, the same way we deducted the cost of purchasing alcohol. The fact that Club Mate was pre-purchased in bulk is immaterial for our purposes of analyzing the event.)

 +
This running total takes into account Noisetor’s donations since September 1st, their 5% contribution to the general fund for fiscal sponsorship, and their recent $841.20 purchase of a server. It also includes several reimbursements for items available for donation during NB10:

Shutt Memorial Fund, $7,139 for the equipment fund, $2,000 for the broadcast fund, $375 from Friends of the Public Library to reimburse Circuit Hacking Mondays for kits, leaving around $38,974.61 for the general fund, which is nearly 8 months of regular expenses. August rent was paid.
 +
 
 +
=== Bookkeeping ===
 +
 
 +
It's important for Noisebridge to keep accurate financial records, and report them publicly and regularly, to give confidence to donors. It's also important to reimburse community members from the appropriate fund as soon as possible when they make a valid reimbursement request, ideally within 3 days.
 +
 
 +
Cash collected from the space for deposit in the bank should be counted, photographed, and reported in #finance-wg on Slack, for transparency and logging. You should identify the source of the cash (which cash box?) and where the cash is going. If the cash is going to an earmarked fund, rather than the general fund, record that in your running financial totals immediately. Don't count cash, do reimbursements, or make any other financial transfer if you don't have enough time to update your running totals. You are bound to forget, and it's too much mental burden to try to remember every little detail. Write it down, then forget.
 +
 
 +
Learn double entry bookkeeping. Use whatever system makes the most sense for you. Maybe that's a spreadsheet, or maybe it's a .txt file. Keep it simple. It's for your own purposes of creating financial reports to post to this wiki page. It doesn't need to be a complicated SaaS solution, unless you have a specific purpose in mind for that software, and are willing to put the extra time in to make the solution work.
 +
 
 +
Noisebridge has a wide variety of income sources and expenses. It might be easier to use .txt files than a pre-built SaaS solution. The author of this piece (John) used .txt files almost exclusively, because it was easier.
 +
 
 +
If someone wants to donate money for a specific, earmarked fund, create that fund without question. The treasurer is the executor of Noisebridge funds, not the decider of which funds should exist.
 +
 
 +
The general fund pays for rent, utilities, regulatory fees (like tax filing fees, permit fees, etc.), revenue-generating items like t-shirts, stickers, snacks, and drinks, and critical sanitary consumables like cleaning supplies, toilet paper, paper towels, and tampons. Guard the general fund with your life. Don't worry if it seems to be piling up money. It is Noisebridge's cushion against major financial shocks.
 +
 
 +
If the general fund dips below 10 months of regular expenses, be worried. If it dips below 4 months of regular expenses, panic.

Financial Report - July 10, 2018

Noisebridge has $92,658.03 in the bank.

_Breakdown:_

$64,519.34 in the General Fund

$8,732.66 for Noisetor (SEE NOISETOR NOTE)

$5,351.38 in the Equipment Fund

$3,271.28 in the Laser Maintenance Fund

$200 in the Accessibility Fund

$10,177.45 in the Elevator Repair Fund

$358.92 in the Sewing Fund

$47 in the Electronics Fund

0.1626 BTC in the HODL Fund


Notes:

We renewed our lease through August 2019!

Noisetor Note: noisetor.net/finances is still down, so I can’t calculate Noisetor’s recent revenue, only expenses. The total in this report is therefore lower than the real total. The most recent Noisetor donation I have recorded in my notes is from October 9, 2017, so any donations past that date have not been included in my calculations here.

Financial Report - June 24, 2018

Noisebridge has $94,694.45 in the bank.

_Breakdown:_

$79,679.5 in the General Fund

$10,704.66 for Noisetor (SEE NOISETOR NOTE)

$437.64 in the Equipment Fund

$3,094.28 in the Laser Maintenance Fund

$200 in the Accessibility Fund

$177.45 in the Elevator Repair Fund

$358.92 in the Sewing Fund

$42 in the Electronics Fund

0.1626 BTC in the HODL Fund


Notes:

The equipment fund is nearly exhausted, but there is a consensus proposal to refill it with $5,000 from the general fund. It was a huge success and should probably be refilled, in the treasurer's opinion. https://www.noisebridge.net/wiki/Equipment_fund

The snack program is gradually being automated.

We signed a lease renewal through August 2019, but are waiting on the landlord's signature. Our rent will go up to $6,500 per month, and we will be responsible for up to $10,000 in elevator repair costs per year, with cost-splitting with the landlord after that.

We paid Scandiuzzi Krebs $2,000 for delivery of the discovery document.


Financial Report - May 29, 2018

Noisebridge has $100,161.75 in the bank.

_Breakdown:_

$81,920.98 in the general fund

$12,278.66 for Noisetor (SEE NOISETOR NOTE)

$2,432.14 in the equipment fund

$2,791.28 in the laser maintenance fund

$200 in the Accessibility Fund

$179.77 in the Elevator Repair Fund

$358.92 in the Sewing Fund

0.1626 BTC in the HODL Fund

Notes:

The broadcast fund was exhausted. Great work everyone! It helped fund NGALAC, a new USB conference microphone, a new projector, coax cables, and A/V and lighting equipment for the 10th Anniversary Party which is still useful for other events.

We passed $100,000 in the bank, which is 1.4% of the way to our goal of $7,000,000. We also passed $80,000 in the general fund for the first time, not counting the HODL Fund, which belongs to the general fund but has wildly fluctuating prices that are not worth recording until we sell our crypto.

The fridge has snacks and drinks now. We seem to be getting enough in donations to cover costs, but not much extra for the general fund. Please donate when you take drinks and snacks from the fridge so that we can continue to keep Noisebridge stocked!

We've brought in $13,151.63 so far this month, so my estimate for the month as a whole is $13,500. This is $6,500 shy of our monthly goal of $20,000 per month.

$200 in the Accessibility Fund

$179.77 in the Elevator Repair Fund

$301.92 in the Sewing Fund

Notes: Our regular recurring income looks like $12,700 per month, based on April. That's a big jump! We need to get to $20,000 to be sustainable.

We briefly passed $100,000 in the bank for the first time on April 25th, and again early in May. We dropped back down with spending on food, drinks, t-shirts, stickers, etc. Investments for the future!

I think we should hit $100 in profit per day from food and drinks alone. We'll see!

We paid our rent for May, and paid Scandiuzzi Krebs $2,000 for the first installment for their discovery document. They're professional fundraisers who will help us develop a strategy to get grants and more recurring donations.

We've begun purchasing snacks and drinks in bulk for the space, available for suggested donations. We want to buy another pallet of Club Mate soon. We put in an order for more stickers and t-shirts, which should hopefully arrive in time for Maker Faire.

Notes:

We have paid our rent for March.

The Thomas J. Shutt Memorial Foundation has been registered as an independent nonprofit in Pennsylvania and obtained independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit status. Now that its status is confirmed and it has an independent checking account, I have transferred its funds from Noisebridge to the new organization. I confirmed the deposit is complete, so it will no longer be in the financial reports. Our first grant will be a small competitive scholarship given to a senior graduating from Thomas’ high school this spring with an interest in creative writing.

Circuit Hacking Mondays has also been removed from the financial reports since the reimbursements have been made. I'm no longer tracking the Roguelike Celebration as a placeholder since I don't believe there is any more action there. Everything is rolled into the general fund.

@patrickod looks like noisetor.net/finances is down, so I can’t calculate Noisetor’s recent revenue, only expenses. The total in this report is therefore lower than the real total. The most recent Noisetor donation I have recorded in my notes is from October 9, 2017, so any donations past that date have not been included in my calculations here.

The sewing fund was seeded by a donation from Vice for shooting a documentary interview in our space. It’s always existed, but is being tracked in the financial report for the first time after a reminder from the sewing crew.

What’s up with the Roguelike Celebration? I haven’t heard from anyone involved in that for quite some time.

The laser maintenance fund revenue and expenses are being tracked here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1c3LHJ4RYClrEC-8m4VBMEjJU_KorokSuVbW3CiaB84A/edit#gid=0

Financial Report - November 08, 2017

Noisebridge has $80,315.65 in the bank.

_Breakdown:_ $42,364.28 in the general fund, which is just over 7 months of critical expenses. $26,092.66 for Noisetor $5,622.15 in the equipment fund $2,947.48 in the Thomas J. Shutt Memorial Foundation $1,412.96 in the broadcast fund $1121.35 in the laser maintenance fund $375 from Friends of the Public Library to reimburse Circuit Hacking Mondays for kits $200 in the Accessibility Fund $179.77 in the Elevator Repair Fund $XXX in the Roguelike Celebration fund (placeholder—all roguelike moneys treated as general fund until we reconcile numbers)

Notes:

We’ve paid our rent for November. Our lease is up at the end of August 2018, and not getting renewed. We probably need to raise a bunch of money to move somewhere else.

Some major general fund purchases: We paid to renew our PO box ($490) and our board directors insurance ($1,009). We also paid a $50 fine to the state of California for some paperwork snafu.

This running total takes into account Noisetor’s donations since October 5 and their 5% contribution to the general fund for fiscal sponsorship, as well as any hosting payments since then.

Royalty payments were added to the Thomas J. Shutt Memorial Foundation, and $125 was spent to file articles of incorporation for an independent nonprofit registered in the state Pennsylvania. Those papers were accepted, so we’re getting an EIN and applying for a 501(c)(3) federal tax exemption.

$358 in cash donations were added to the laser maintenance fund.

The Elevator Repair Fund was created and seeded with $200 by consensus. Some call button light replacements were ordered with a matching grant from the Equipment Fund.

The Accessibility Fund was created and seeded with $200 by a city requirement to spend an additional 20% of the cost of any new construction on accessibility improvements. These funds will be allocated by recommendation of the accessibility working group (TBD), which will prioritize the voices of people who are most affected by accessibility problems with the space.

The Roguelike Celebration has spent $2,062.50 on socks and $531 on metal pins. This event used to be hosted at Noisebridge and still raises money through Noisebridge’s financial infrastructure in exchange for a big donation. We will need to account for all roguelike income and expenses at some point; right now it’s all clumped into the general fund.

We have a $1,737 payment to Jakprints on October 26, possibly for stickers and t-shirts, but maybe for the Roguelike Celebration. I think this is our usual printer for t-shirts. @patrickod or @maltman23 may be able to confirm if these printing costs are for Noisebridge (general fund) or the Roguelike Celebration (which will be accounted for separately).

One caveat about the numbers in this report: It’s possible that Noisetor revenue since October 9 is missing, and their regularly scheduled hosting payment didn’t go through. If some revenue is reallocated to Noisetor, that would decrease the general fund total and increase the Noisetor total, without changing our overall bank balance. When their hosting payment goes through, that will decrease the Noisetor total and our overall bank balance by $1,547.

Financial Report - October 05, 2017

Noisebridge has $83,299.38 in the bank.

_Breakdown:_ $45,058.43 in the general fund, which is about 7-1/2 months of critical expenses. $26,822.04 for Noisetor $5,830.12 in the equipment fund $3,037.48 in the Thomas J. Shutt Memorial Foundation $1,412.96 in the broadcast fund $763.35 in the laser maintenance fund $375 from Friends of the Public Library to reimburse Circuit Hacking Mondays for kits $XXX in the Roguelike Celebration fund (placeholder—all roguelike moneys treated as general fund until we reconcile numbers)

Notes:

“Critical expenses” include rent, utilities, Internet, trash collection, insurance, accounting fees, legal fees, bank fees, and state business registration fees, but does not include drink purchases, t-shirt or sticker printing, or payments for repairs and consumables. Critical expenses add up to around $6,000 per month.

This running total takes into account Noisetor’s donations since October 2 and their 5% contribution to the general fund for fiscal sponsorship, as well as their most recent payment for hosting.

$439.53 in book royalties were added to the Thomas J. Shutt Memorial Foundation.

Some equipment fund money got spent on guitars, audio mixing rack infrastructure, and PS4 controller.

Eventbrite is starting to send us money for the next Roguelike Celebration, which we’re fiscally sponsoring again this year. They’ll be making a 5% donation of their revenue to Noisebridge’s general fund, which they estimate will be around $500, but that may be higher or lower. If they have a surplus when it’s all said and done, we’ll keep it in the bank as the “Roguelike Celebration fund,” for use at the next event. All of the expenses and revenue will be forwarded to treasurer@noisebridge.net for me to crunch the numbers. Until I actually crunch those numbers, though, I’m going to just treat all suspected Roguelike revenue (like mysterious Eventbrite deposits) as “general fund” for the purposes of these financial reports.

Financial Report - October 02, 2017

Noisebridge has $83,145.56 in the bank.

_Breakdown:_ $43,725.28 in the general fund, which is about nearly 9 months of regular expenses. $28,348.54 for Noisetor $5,922.48 in the equipment fund $2,597.95 in the Thomas J. Shutt Memorial Foundation $1,412.96 in the broadcast fund $763.35 in the laser maintenance fund $375 from Friends of the Public Library to reimburse Circuit Hacking Mondays for kits

Notes:

This running total takes into account Noisetor’s donations since September 19th and their 5% contribution to the general fund for fiscal sponsorship. $288 was added to the laser maintenance fund from the laser maintenance cash donation box.

By my accounting, we have 37 dues-paying members and philanthropists kicking in $2,331.80 each month. It’s possible more people are paying dues in cash, which is harder to trace. I’m following up individually with some people. We have only 14 members who I know to be current on their dues, 2 members on hiatus, and 13 members who may or may not be paying dues or on hiatus but aren’t paying dues with the email address I have on file. We have 23 philanthropists I know to be currently paying dues.

Financial Report - September 28, 2017

Noisebridge has $81,642.30 in the bank.

_Breakdown:_ $42,552 in the general fund, which is about 8-1/2 months of regular expenses. $28,305.79 for Noisetor $5,922.48 in the equipment fund $2,597.95 in the Thomas J. Shutt Memorial Foundation $1,412.96 in the broadcast fund $475.35 in the laser maintenance fund $375 from Friends of the Public Library to reimburse Circuit Hacking Mondays for kits

Notes:

This running total takes into account Noisetor’s donations since September 19th and their 5% contribution to the general fund for fiscal sponsorship.

We recently spent $379.74 from the equipment fund and $379.73 from the project-specific donations to the general fund to purchase a MakerBot Ultimate 3D Printer. There is currently a fundraiser for a Prusa I3.

We just paid our rent for October, so our new post-rent baseline is $42,552. Our previous baseline (September 1st) was $40,054.28, which means that the general fund grew by nearly $2,000 this month.

That gain is even more impressive considering we took a dip of $2,500 to buy all of that Club Mate near the beginning of the month and still have about 2/5 of it left.

The expected return on the remaining Club Mate is about $1,200-$1,300.

So if we count our chickens before they hatch, our general fund grew by $3,200 - $3,300 this month.

Financial Report - September 19, 2017

Noisebridge has $84,761.46 in the bank.

_Breakdown:_ $45,343.19 in the general fund, which is just over nine months of regular expenses. $28,220.29 for Noisetor $6,336.72 in the equipment fund $2,597.95 in the Thomas J. Shutt Memorial Foundation $1,412.96 in the broadcast fund $475.35 in the laser maintenance fund $375 from Friends of the Public Library to reimburse Circuit Hacking Mondays for kits

Notes:

This running total takes into account Noisetor’s donations since September 16th and their 5% contribution to the general fund for fiscal sponsorship.

Financial Report - September 16, 2017 - Including Breakdown of #NB10!

Noisebridge has $84,486.38 in the bank.

_Breakdown:_ $45,115.61 in the general fund, which is just over nine months of regular expenses. $28,172.79 for Noisetor $6,336.72 in the equipment fund $2,597.95 in the Thomas J. Shutt Memorial Fund $1,412.96 in the broadcast fund $475.35 in the laser maintenance fund $375 from Friends of the Public Library to reimburse Circuit Hacking Mondays for kits

Notes:

This running total takes into account Noisetor’s donations since September 12th and their 5% contribution to the general fund for fiscal sponsorship. It also takes into account new royalty payments to Thomas’ foundation.

We got another big deposit ($1,037.53) into our checking account from Eventbrite. We don’t know why they keep giving us money, but it’s great!

We spent $587.04 from the broadcast fund for A/V, staging, and lighting equipment for the Noisebridge 10th Anniversary Exhibition & Ball (#NB10). Each of the five performers for #NB10 were paid $200 from door and drinks donations, for a total of $1,000. We made several reimbursements from the equipment fund as well related to #NB10. Drinks and other remaining expenses were paid for out of the general fund. The event was extremely net revenue positive for the space.

Miscellaneous #NB10 expenses are described here: https://noisebridge.net/wiki/NB10-Misc-Expenses-Tally

Reimbursed drink expenses were $929.96, mostly reflected in totals from previous financial reports. Total expenses from the event add up to $3,639.24, not counting Club Mate consumed. The bartenders estimated 5 boxes, or 100 bottles, of Club Mate were consumed, previously purchased with general fund money at an estimated total cost of $315. $587.04 of that came from the broadcast fund. $638.01 of that came from the equipment fund. $2,729.19 came from the general fund, inclusive of the estimated cost of Club Mate consumed.

Our total revenue over the long weekend was $4,988.60. Subtracting expenses that were reimbursed from the general fund, the general fund increased by $2,259.41 over the weekend. Subtracting all expenses, our overall total accounts increased by $1,034.36. But spending money from the equipment fund and broadcast fund is a good thing! That money is meant to be spent.

(Note: Because this takes into account the estimated cost of Club Mate consumed, technically our cash accounts increased by $1,359.36, and the cash in our general fund increased by $2,574.41. But I think the cost of Club Mate should be included in the accounting for the event, the same way we deducted the cost of purchasing alcohol. The fact that Club Mate was pre-purchased in bulk is immaterial for our purposes of analyzing the event.)

Financial Report - September 12, 2017

Noisebridge has $84,486.38 in the bank.

Shutt Memorial Fund $2,000 in the broadcast fund $475.35 in the laser maintenance fund $375 from Friends of the Public Library to reimburse Circuit Hacking Mondays for kits

Notes:

The general fund is below its typical level because of thousands of dollars of reimbursements for Club Mate, alcohol, and t-shirts for the Noisebridge 10th Anniversary Exhibition & Ball. Expect that to flood back in over the weekend.

This running total takes into account Noisetor’s donations since September 1st, their 5% contribution to the general fund for fiscal sponsorship, and their recent $841.20 purchase of a server. It also includes several reimbursements for items available for donation during NB10:

$404.16 to Ruth for the purchase of Bulleit and beer $460.80 to Jarrod for the purchase of custom t-shirts

This total does not separate out project-specific donations for the new 3D printer, but those donations are being recorded appropriately by donate.noisebridge.net. When the project hits the magic number, we will direct money from the general fund and a matching grant from the equipment fund to purchase the new 3D printer. Financial Report - September 1, 2017

Notes:

Today we reimbursed Mitch $2,500 for the purchase of a pallet of Club Mate for the space, which will be available to everyone at the regular $4/bottle donation rate. The expected delta between donation revenue and cost of purchase is around $700 for the pallet. We also reimbursed Lady Red $53 from the equipment fund for the purchase of a dress form for the sewing area.

We recently got a $1,956.49 deposit in our checking account from Eventbrite, and your treasurer does not know why. If anyone knows why, let him know for the record.

Bookkeeping

It's important for Noisebridge to keep accurate financial records, and report them publicly and regularly, to give confidence to donors. It's also important to reimburse community members from the appropriate fund as soon as possible when they make a valid reimbursement request, ideally within 3 days.

Cash collected from the space for deposit in the bank should be counted, photographed, and reported in #finance-wg on Slack, for transparency and logging. You should identify the source of the cash (which cash box?) and where the cash is going. If the cash is going to an earmarked fund, rather than the general fund, record that in your running financial totals immediately. Don't count cash, do reimbursements, or make any other financial transfer if you don't have enough time to update your running totals. You are bound to forget, and it's too much mental burden to try to remember every little detail. Write it down, then forget.

Learn double entry bookkeeping. Use whatever system makes the most sense for you. Maybe that's a spreadsheet, or maybe it's a .txt file. Keep it simple. It's for your own purposes of creating financial reports to post to this wiki page. It doesn't need to be a complicated SaaS solution, unless you have a specific purpose in mind for that software, and are willing to put the extra time in to make the solution work.

Noisebridge has a wide variety of income sources and expenses. It might be easier to use .txt files than a pre-built SaaS solution. The author of this piece (John) used .txt files almost exclusively, because it was easier.

If someone wants to donate money for a specific, earmarked fund, create that fund without question. The treasurer is the executor of Noisebridge funds, not the decider of which funds should exist.

The general fund pays for rent, utilities, regulatory fees (like tax filing fees, permit fees, etc.), revenue-generating items like t-shirts, stickers, snacks, and drinks, and critical sanitary consumables like cleaning supplies, toilet paper, paper towels, and tampons. Guard the general fund with your life. Don't worry if it seems to be piling up money. It is Noisebridge's cushion against major financial shocks.

If the general fund dips below 10 months of regular expenses, be worried. If it dips below 4 months of regular expenses, panic.
