Small grants and private donations have always been helpful in keeping community lab spaces such as BwoB alive. In the past we have survived on a combination of membership dues, class revenue and the occasional grant/donation. I am starting this thread to gather ideas from the community specifically for raising cash (not donations of supplies or services) since the overwhelmingly major expense is the rent on the space. So if you know of any discretionary funding, small grants, or folks who might be passionate about the existence of a community lab in Queens please list them here. It would be extraordinarily helpful as we go forward, and greatly appreciated!
