Initial Move-in Finances
Financial commitments: Is your collective able to put down first, last, and deposit by May 1? How about May 15? Any extra funds/donations you could put toward the Omni deposit (probably somewhere in the range of 30k total)?
- Yes, by May 1 if consensus is reached to move in. ($6k)
- If we reach consensus, May 15th with 3x rent, however rent amount depends on space and has not been consented on.
- Yes, by May 15th with 3x rent. $4,500
Food Not Bombs
We operate at a deficit, and do not have any money that we can spare. Maybe someday.... Meanwhile it has been suggested that we contribute food to the collective. Good, but we are not certain how that would work. Typically we provide food for events (i.e. the Anarchist Book Fair). So that is something that needs to be discussed.
Oakland Nights Live
- $300 on May 1st or 15th.
- Yes, to $150 by May 15th. This is the best contribution in the near-term because the effort is mainly Danny and two other individuals with jobs elsewhere, likely only using the space for fundraising/crowdfunding workshops and skillshares.
Bay Area Public School (BAPS)
- Yes. $3K by May 1.
