Sustain Your Space!
Support the Free Space to thrive at our new home, 3747 Minnehaha Avenue!
Operating expenses at the new Minnehaha Free Space cost between $1,200 and $1,500 per month. We’ve committed to at least 3 years at 3747 Minnehaha, and contributions from community members like you – particularly monthly sustaining donations – are what will help us thrive that long and hopefully longer.
On our WePay donation page, choose the “monthly” option to give a fixed amount every month towards making the Free Space sustainable and long-lasting.
Any amount meaningful to you — as little as $3 or as much as you can afford per month — helps give us a source of income we can rely on. You choose the monthly amount that fits your ability and desire for the Free Space to thrive well into the future! $5, $10, $25, $50, or a custom amount — its up to you.
Of course, we love one-time donations, too. Either way, click to give now:
What if I don’t want to donate online?
One-time donations can be made in person or through mail at 3747 Minnehaha Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55406.
To make a monthly contribution, WePay is easy and secure – but here are some other methods for those who may not want to donate online:
- ACH (Automatic checking withdrawal): Fill out an ACH (automatic checking withdrawal) form, available in person at the Minnehaha Free Space or online here, and give it to a Free Space volunteer along with a voided check. ACH automatically deducts from your checking account on the last day of every month – you can set it and forget it.
- Contact your bank to set up automatic bill pay through your checking or savings account. The bank can automatically cut us a check each month. Have them send it to: Minnehaha Free Space, 3747 Minnehaha Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55406. Checks should be made out to “MARS” (unless you require your donation to be tax-deductible; see instructions below).
- Pay by cash or check. You can mail a well-concealed check or cash to: Minnehaha Free Space, 3747 Minnehaha Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55406, or give it to a collective member at the space. We’ll take your information and assign a “delegate” to remind you of your dues each month.
If you have questions, don’t hesitate: talk to a collective member you know or email us at email@example.com. Operators are standing by!
Join your neighbors and comrades in making a radical space that can last by pitching in today. Thank you!
Can I make a tax-deductible contribution?
Yes! Here’s how.
Sisters’ Camelot, the mobile food-share nonprofit whose mission is to create sustainability in the Twin Cities, has generously agreed to become our fiscal sponsor. To make a tax-deductible donation to the Free Space, you must make your check out to “Sisters’ Camelot” and put “MARS” in the memo. Then, mail it to us at:
Minnehaha Free Space
3747 Minnehaha Ave
Minneapolis, MN 55406
We will forward the check to Sisters’ Camelot, who will send you a receipt. Your donation will help sustain the Free Space in the years to come.
