Starting Friday, October 4th, we’ll be launching a fundraiser using Indiegogo to support the renovation of our historic building. Our goal is 45K in 45 Days!
Following the economic downturn, diminishing resources, and long untended issues with our infrastructure, Grand Street has had to move its programs off-site, cut other programs, and keep our building closed during the fall and winter due to a broken HVAC system. Unable to occupy our building legally, we can’t run programs, performances, or therefore sustain ourselves financially. With the building as it stands, we actually run the risk of folding all together.
This is where you come in.
In order for us to operate and provide programs in our building, we need to install a heating system, fix our roof, floors and walls, plumbing, and update our stage equipment. For all of that, we’d need approximately $150,000 total. In this first phase, though, we’re asking for $45,000 to get our doors open. This will cover the cost of installing our HVAC system, repairing the walls, and fixing the roof. Then we can operate legally, year-round and begin to provide programs that will give us sustainable income. Your support is integral to this process, and you will be thanked appropriately! Depending on your level of support, your generosity will be thanked publicly, ranging from small gifts like a DVD set from our Youth FX program, to limited edition artwork, a VIP party in your honor, or even naming a room after you! Remember, every gift counts, no matter the size.
