SJC Crowdfunding Campaign 2018


The Social Justice Center was founded in 2000 after a massive effort from the community, and today the organizations in the SJC serve over 25,000 people in Dane County annually. Over the past 18 years, this building has been home to numerous community organizations--and the building has gotten a little worn down in the process. We want to transform the SJC and make that number even higher by allowing our current groups to thrive and welcome new nonprofits into our family. 

We want to provide more access to the community, expand our art gallery program, install state-of-the-art IT capabilities, and make room for the Mutual Aid Workspace (MAW), a co-working space with shared equipment and software and a library of things. Picture a vibrant learning community, demonstrating abundance through cooperation and cool new hub of creativity and activism in the Willy Street neighborhood. 

We need your help! We are about halfway through the renovations, and need to raise money through donations in order to keep our rents affordable. With the financing available, we will just be able to cover construction bills, and if we are going to transform the Center into a hub of activism and creativity with more community involvement, we need additional support to sustain us. We believe we can raise $50,000 from within our own community and launch our efforts to turn this vision into reality. 

We are launching our crowdfunding campaign on Monday November 19th and we need your help to start with a bang and keep the momentum going. This is a virtual kickoff event, so you can join in wherever you are!
