Dear friends and fans of Noisebridge.

UPDATE: Noisebridge's landlord has renewed our lease for another year. During that time we are continuing to raise funds to find a new permanent location within San Francisco.

However We still need your help.

We don't know where Noisebridge will end up, but our community is committed to providing a home for hacking and making in San Francisco. We believe that San Francisco needs a hackerspace that is open to as many people as possible as often as possible. We also strongly believe that the residents and guests of our town deserve a space to pursue their hopes, interests, and ambitions at their own pace in a safe space where lack of funds is no barrier to entry. This is what Noisebridge provides, and has provided for nearly a decade. With your help we are going to keep providing the best donation based space for everyone’s technical and creative projects.

To continue this mission, Noisebridge absolutely needs to raise money at a much higher level then it has in the past. The best way you can help us out, right now, is to become a monthly donor. Please do so at:

http://donate.noisebridge.net/projects/nbsp

Even if you can’t commit to a monthly donation, any amount you give will help us build a war-chest to get through our most difficult financial challenge yet. In addition, if you can provide resources, skills, and experience towards fundraising on the order of six figures or more, we’d really like to talk to you. Remember, Noisebridge is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, with all the good things that entails. Tax deductions, employer matching, fuzzy feelings!

We're still organizing our fundraising and discovering our options, so this won't be the last message you receive about helping Noisebridge succeed in 2018 and beyond. We entreat you to please spread this message far and wide -- because it’s going to take a global village.
