2019 Year End Fundraiser

2019 was a year of many changes. We hope 2020 will be our year of growth. We hope to add new members, provide more direct giving and services to our members and finally get a brick and mortar space to do the following:

  • Hold meetings where members would not feel obligated to purchase food to attend. Such as Grief Support, Book Group, secular addiction support groups, small discussion groups.
  • Have a separate room from the meeting room to provide childcare during meetings so more members can attend events.
  • Have a storage room to store donations for clothing or food drives.
  • Hold adult enrichment classes- learn new crafts, cooking skills, essential repair skills, financial literacy, civic engagement.
  • Bake sales or craft fairs
  • Fundraising events, comedy nights, speaking engagements, etc
  • Kitchen area for cooking classes, potlucks, regular community dinners open to public
  • Parking area large enough for members to park during events, space for food trucks, space for Produce on Wheels Without Waste distribution
Mock up of possible space.
Something like this could be ours!

Current rents for a building space such as this is between $1000-$3000/month.  Once we have the space the possibilities to raise funds will be much easier.

Please help us get closer to this dream. Donate here.

On our way there we will need smaller things as well.

  • An HP Laserjet Printer, $369.
  • Replacement cartridges, ~$200 x 4. 
  • Paper, envelopes, cardstock, ~$120
  • Quickbook accounting software 1 yr subscription, $75

Any amount will help us to our goal. Please donate and/or share our campaign and help us make Southern Arizona a safe, welcoming and supportive place for Atheists, Secularists, and Non-religious people.
