If everyone on my facebook would be able to kick in $5, that would be $4,500, which would cover rent and utilities for a couple of months with deposit, and while we could have a space for a little while, we would need to come up with further months' rent through another fundraiser. If you could all give $10, we would have over $9,000, which would take care of: rent and utilities for a few months, filing for nonprofit status with state and IRS, admin. costs, and to get some supplies together. That's pretty great! But if you could all donate the price of a pizza - delivered (with tip because you're all nice people), $20, that would give us time and space and resources to get off to a rip-roaring start! We are planning a larger, longer-term GoFundMe later for rent, capital improvements, supplies and other costs of expansion to phase 2, stay tuned for more details about bringing back a Bloomington LGBTIQ legend. If you will, please join the Facebook page and/or follow me for updates and to lend your ideas. https://www.facebook.com/LGBTIQCommunityCenter
Just to be ridiculously clear:
I am the beneficiary of this campaign to fund the Community Center. I will withdraw the funds and, depending on the amount raised, will spend it as indicated in the updates. I will deliver the funds to myself by withdrawing them from GoFundMe into a personal savings account.
After we are incorporated, the funds will be withdrawn into a corporate bank account.
