What is a Sustainer Donor?
Sustainer Donors provide regular, monthly donations that:
- Provide a reliable income stream that we can count on from month to month to carry out our work
- Maintain our freedom to speak and act on critical issues, saying what needs to be said without fear of losing funding from government or corporate sponsors
What do sustainer donations pay for?
Our current goal is to reach $2200/month in sustainer donations so that we can:
- Maintain our minimal overhead expenses (Eg. rent, insurance)
- Increase The Stand Coordinator position to two days/week
With these basic operating costs covered by monthly Sustainer Donors, we will be able to put all of The Stand's rental income from meeting and event bookings towards:
- Community Organizing Fund - to support grassroots activist groups with subsidized rentals and small grants to support their work
- Building Fund - to save for a down payment on a community owned building in the future
What are the perks of becoming a Sustainer Donor?
- Membership in The Stand Community Organizing Centre
- Invitations to community events hosted at The Stand
- Meeting Time - 1 hour of meeting time/month for every $15 (Eg. $45 monthly donation = 3 hours/month; Your time can also be transferred to a member group of your choice.)
You'll be able to increase, reduce or suspend your monthly support at any time, by writing us at [email protected] or reaching us at our main office number, (306) 955-3070.
