Noisebridge Space Program/FundraisingCall
Dear friends and fans of Noisebridge:
We need your help.
Despite our best efforts to fly under The Storm, The Great San Francisco Reckoning has finally fallen upon us. Noisebridge's landlords do not want to renew our lease. Come August 2018, we will almost certainly be out of our space at 2169 Mission St.
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:
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.
Thank you for all your support, and hack the planet,
The (Noisebridge Space Program)
