Benefit of Solving the Problem
description of positive potential
  • Enable existing funds to be focused on projects of more value to the membership and community.
  • Puts less strain on the general budget and membership funds.
  • Enables metalworking shops, woodworking shops, large projects, classrooms, storage and other non-space-efficient areas.
Known Barriers
those things which would prevent success of a future solution
  • What few grants/donations that are available in this area are mostly “one time” and do notsustain long term expansion or projects.
  • It is difficult to take advantage of space expansion opportunities when they arise ( The “lease it now or lose it” situation)
  • Overhead expenses are not “obvious” to potential donors or to members.
  • Reductions in lease/rent are not tax deductible.
