Supporting the House
Help us get the House off the ground!
We have all kinds of ideas for generating income, from production services for clients to the book, product, and artwork sales, from government and private fundraising, ticket sales, and a virtual "tip jar" for livestreaming to more "out there" – I want to sing from the back of a pick-up truck under a 3D replica of the House of ShAkE sketch, hawking our wares to passers-by!
Our organizational model combines for-profit and non-profit approaches, to suit the needs of each project. And we will be reaching out in the future to crowdfund specific goals, as our projects move closer toward production.
Although we don't have charitable status yet, so we cannot offer tax receipts for contributions, it's one of our priorities. Your gift could make it possible sooner rather than later!
And of course we're always open to in-kind donations. If you have goods or services you think we might benefit from, please let us know.
Finally, as we start to develop membership- and rewards-based formats, we'll be announcing tiered Patreon patronage and subscription-based options. For now, we have "The HouseWarming Fund."
“The HouseWarming Fund”
This is House of ShAkE's first fundraising campaign. Our current needs are diverse, ranging from the very specific (like a new computer and an upgraded web package) to the more general (covering some basic expenses in the short term), in addition to such longer-term goals as incorporation and achieving charitable status.
Small or large, any contribution at this formative time is especially welcome. Each will be crucial in helping us “complete our renovations” – to progress from the opening phase to full functionality.
And in gratitude for every gift of $100 or more, we'll send you a copy of the 2nd paperback edition of David Earle's A Handbook for Ecstatic Survival, which The Dance Current called an “unusual and utterly engaging book … a window to the soul of an extraordinary artist.” The book will be going on presale in May, and we will ship your copy as soon it is printed.
Please donate and help us get the House off the ground!
