March 5th 2019. We have made a major breakthrough in our efforts to keep Hermann's Jazz Club alive as a community resource, forever.
Our media release: JAZZ ON VIEW SOCIETY SIGNS 5-YEAR OFFER TO LEASE & OPERATE HERMANN’S is available on the Jazz on View website.
We have the opportunity to enter into a 5 year (renewable) lease on the ground floor of the Hermann's building. To do so we have to raise an additional $75,000 by the 15th of April 2019. These funds are required to make the lease deposits and to provide funds for improvements and set up costs. That is a very short time, but because or your generosity we raised over $25,000 though this campaign in 2017 in our attempt to buy the building. So we are asking our GoFundMe supporters to help by helping get us to 75,000.00 to our goal. We know that with your help once again we can.
IF WE DON'T GET TO THE LEASE: We have agreed that if we are not successful in leasing the club we will refund the funds donated. To be clear, we might still lease the club if we raised say $72,000.00 (borrowing the remaining $3,000) and in that case we obviously would not be refunding the money. But if we don't go ahead with the lease the money goes back to the donors.WE CAN'T DO THIS WITHOUT YOUR HELP!
We need your help now to raise the critical cash funds that will allow us to make initial payments and facilitate the leasing of this facility for the community.
JAZZ ON VIEW SOCIETY is a B.C. non-profit society dedicated to turning Hermann's Jazz Club into community owned and operated facility which we are referring to as Arts on View. We can't do this without your help.Jazz on View Website
