We are launching a crowdfunding campaign on December 17th, 2017 to raise $75,000 to upgrade the commercial kitchen in the basement!



  • Send out pre-pledge requests and outreach to press before the end of Thursday, December 14th
  • Soft Launch: Sunday, December 17th
  • Press Release: Monday, December 18th
  • Consider throwing a post-launch fundraising dance party to promote the campaign - entry fee and then mid-event announcement of the Phase II campaign



  • EVERYONE: Help us secure pre-pledges from now until launch: research suggests securing pledges totalling 20% of the overall goal from major donors in advance of the public campaign launch is one of the surest indicators of success. Here's some draft text you can user
    • add pledges to the spreadsheet [ping jenny for link]
  • EVERYONE: Reach out to press contacts - we are currently drafting a press release to be published on Monday, December 18th [ping jenny for link]
  • Upload finalized video to Omni's YouTube - Anka
  • Finalize the campaign text - Laura/Jenny/Marcus/others??
  • Draft a quarter-sheet flyer - Grant
  • Add to the WishList the top kitchen equipment choices that we'd like to have donated to us - Jenny/Ken/others??
  • Set up campaign page - Jenny [ping for access]


  • EVERYONE: Distribute flyers, outreach to your networks via mailing lists, social media, announcements at events, etc;
  • ANYONE: Create a short (30-second - 1-minute) video encapsulating the spirit of your collective/project and how the kitchen would benefit you/your community


Planning meetings are now taking place every Wednesday at 6pm in the Basement Library.

If you'd like to help out, you can join the mailing list here:
