We are constantly trying to buy out our landlords. Not every attempt works out, but each attempt costs money. Money to hire lawyers, consultants, architects, engineers to tell us whether the latest rooming house, shopfront or historical building can be taken under community ownership. We have a great team, all who understand our eccentric neighbourhood and the community land trust model. They are generous with their time, yet your donation will allow us to keep on trying.
Our staff, students, interns, consultants, and volunteers pull all-nighters writing grant applications. Our board members are all a bunch of neighbours taking time our of their evenings, weekends, away from family time, away from time lining up for the food bank, away from potential gigs, sometimes bringing our dependants with us to community meetings. If you can’t join our committee work yourself, buying us a coffee is much appreciated.
