Calling on all supporters of Affordable Housing!
We need your help in spreading the word.
We are asking you to forward this newsletter to 5 people in your network who would be interested in learning more about contributing to making the Baldwin House Community Collective a reality.
Over these past few months, dozens of volunteers have raised over $1.2 million from individuals who believe in Baldwin House’s goal of using mutual aid principles to create affordable housing. We are so grateful and amazed for all the support we have received and now asking you to help us in the final stretch.
We are operating on a wildly tight timeline and need an additional $1 million by April 14th. We’re seeking people with access to wealth to loan funds through Donor Advised Funds or direct loans from accredited investors.
Please fill out our Community Fund Interest Form ASAP if you’re interested in supporting Baldwin House.
Help us fight against gentrification in DC and build a mutual aid hub in Ward 1. Your contribution is hugely appreciated!
