How much money do we raise?
We will be trying to raise both recurring gittip donations but also a one-time amount. The idea is that the one time amount will allow us to pay the rent for 6 months and that the six months will be enough to get enough members and/or groups for the new.
Let's say we want to raise $40,000. Six months rent is $6,000. Let's say $500 a month for other expenses, so that's $39,000.
We are getting about $1,800 to $1,900 a month right now, so we should only really need $28,200, and that's assuming we're alone in the new space.
Let's assume we need to get to $4,000 a month to sustain, and then have two other groups contributing $1,000 each or one group of $2,000. That means we need to double our monthly income.
Current income: ~$1850. That's equivalent to:
- ~93 people paying $20 a month.
- or ~62 people paying $30 a month.
- or ~46 people paying $40 a month
- or ~37 people paying $50 a month
In order to get $4000 a month we need the equivalent of:
- ~200 people paying $20 a month
- or ~133 people paying $30 a month
- or ~100 people paying $40 a month
- or ~80 people paying $50 a month.
Or we could just get 500 people paying $1 a week on gittip on top of existing income and we'd be at about $4,000 a month.
If we didn't manage to get very many new members after moving, and could only afford $2,000 a month, the $40,000 would still let us stay in the space for about 10-11 months, which is enough to figure out other solutions (e.g. a cheaper space or the omni).
This is all assuming we're only responsible for $4,000 a month and not the full $6,000.
