Curious on what people think of donating $30,000 to the Omni Commons, which houses our sister space Sudoroom. The amount would be a way to bolster them well beyond their original goal and hopefully leave them with additional finances + ease stress in gradually recovering from lockdown. What do people think of this idea?
Sudoroom is very literally connected to Noisebridge as a sister space. The Omni has been working hard to raise funds over the course of the Pandemic and last I checked their Omni GoFundMe made them $11,000 of a $20,000 goal. Noisebridge has made many successful efforts to raise funds, so it makes sense in this unprecedented time to windfall some of our good fortune to our fellow volunteer hackerspace in need.
What do others think? It has been on my mind for some months and I know we do have funds in the bank to cover this without hurting ourselves. Thank you for your consideration! If this makes sense to look into, it would be good to host a meeting with people from the Omni and Sudoroom to discuss further.
