Financial Information

Current Monthly Expenses

As of third quarter 2020, we pay roughly $11,350/month for various expenses. However, these calculations do not include various unexpected costs, such as roof repair, sewer lateral, etc. We are attempting to build a capital reserve fund with a combination of event rental income as well as grants and large donations. Currently, we have an operational reserve fund of approximately $30K.


Starting Jan 1st, 2017 we officially stopped paying rent and started paying off a mortgage loan! Our loan is for $975,000 at 5.5% interest, with a balloon payment due Jan 1st, 2021.

  • $5,677.89/mo at 5.5% accruing interest


  • Gas & Electric - ~$1,500/mo
  • Water - ~$350/mo
  • Garbage & Recycling - $916/mo

Revenue from Other Supporters

  • The Commons Working Group works with many different groups and individuals that rent out spaces in the Omni on a sliding-scale basis. On average, space rental generates between $4000-$6000 each month. A fun working group that could always use more volunteers, ping the list to help with event coordination!
  • We are currently researching grants for capital improvement projects, such as building accessibility, kitchen remodeling, and structural improvements. Please drop us a line at fundraising AT omnicommons DOT org if you have any suggestions, or join a Fundraising Working Group meeting!
