Project Fierce Chicago is committed to community funding, meaning we are reaching out to the LGBTQ and allied communities to build this project. As a collective, we believe Chicago needs more housing opportunities overall, so we do not want to compete with other groups and organizations that already provide vitally needed housing services.
While we foresee reaching out to foundations to help subsidize program-related costs, we will be funding a substantial portion of this project, especially in its initial stages through private donations. Over 180 people helped us raise $10,000 in one month, showing that when we pool our resources, we really can make a difference! Since our initial campaign, our collective has tripled in size, we have received our legal non-profit status and we’ve successfully raised a third of our first-year operating budget. We look forward to building on this record to make Project Fierce Chicago a reality, and we need your help.
If you already know you love Project Fierce Chicago, become a Monthly Sustainer by establishing an automatic monthly donation to the PFC. Being a Monthly Sustainer helps you by spreading out your annual gift into affordable, smaller payments. And it contribute to the sustainability of Project Fierce Chicago by providing a reliable source of support and reducing the amount of resources we spend fundraising so your gift goes further.
