UPDATE 2/19/2016: We are happy to announce that we’ve currently raised $1100 to repair our broken window, although we are still seeking donations for upgrades. An immense thank you to our supporters! Meanwhile, the vandal has been arrested and we are happy to feel more safe and secure moving forward.
Flux Factory needs your help to replace our front window. On Saturday February 13th, a vandal threw a wrench through the large glass pane for no clear reason. Unfortunately, that coldest day of the winter left our artists-in-residence without proper protection from the elements, not to mention ill at ease. While we’re investigating with the police and checking in with our insurance company, we can’t keep our facade boarded up for much longer.
When Flux gets knocked down, we get back up stronger! Help us turn this setback into a step forward. We’re seeking tax-deductible donations to replace (and hopefully improve) the large window that lets Flux Factory greet the world.
Please consider supporting Flux through the below Paypal button, or donate an amount of your choosing. If you’re unable to donate now, or want to get more deeply involved, consider participating in our Flux-a-Thon fundraiser on May 7, or volunteering to assist with our various building improvements (email email@example.com for more).
If our supporters provide $800, Flux can replace our pane with sturdy safety glass.
If our supporters provide $4000, Flux can retrofit our old-fashioned windows with double-pane glass to keep us warm, and keep Con Ed bills lower.
To be frank, ever since we signed our lease extension through 2021, we’ve been warily eyeing our drafty loft-style windows which could be updated to improve insulation and lower heat costs. If we can raise the extra money in the next week, artists for the next 5 years will be served through lower cost and better accommodations. We’re already well underway with all kinds of improvements and amenities to make the next 5 years great, a notable part of which is supported by the generous Hyde & Watson foundation. Thank you for supporting of our mission to provide affordable, quality space for emerging artists in an NYC that’s as tough as it is inspiring. Please do reach out to our director Nat at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’ve got any feedback.
