running a donations-based café means we need donations! this will help us keep the food cheap, and free, for people who need it. it will also help us run free community events where facilitators and performers are paid.
we believe that being totally transparent about our costs and spending is in the community’s interest: you know where the money comes from and where it goes! you can see our budgeting spreadsheets with a full breakdown of our costs.
the most effective way to donate via paypal is not to click the above button, but to log in to your paypal account, go to “send money”, enter our email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) and select “sending to a friend or to family“. this way, paypal doesn’t take a cut!
