Move the building off the current property by September 1
Building will be demolished in September
- YMCA donates building to IKE Box Done!
- Find a place to put it Got it!
- Get approval from the city Green light!
- Raise $1.5 Million With your help, we can do it!
and that IF begins and ends with you.
It’s move it or lose it time (literally), but we believe with your help (yes, you...and everyone else too) we can move the IKE Box. Below we break down the IF, the WHY, and the HOW. So read on!
Because we do so much more than serve coffee, and we believe this is worth saving:
- IKE Quest (work/life skills)
- Bridgeway (recovery)
- CAREcorps (leadership camp)
- All-ages music venue
- Community-led forums and events
- Regular art exhibits
- 60+ community groups regularly use IKE Box
- $55K average monthly revenue
- Revenue fuels IKE Quest program
- 450 customers/day
- Relationships fuel transformation
And these options won't work:
- For equivalent space, costs more than moving the building
- Loss of location and customer base
A different building
- Costs as much or more plus buildout/movein costs
- Loss of location and risk feasibility of coffee business
$1,500,000 … We get it, that’s a lot of zeroes. But the reality is it gets smaller the more people get involved (watch). We even did the math for you! We broke it down into three categories of giving. Our thought is EVERYONE should be able to get involved somehow, in some way. Click below to see which GRP (give/raise/pledge) level makes the most sense for you.
