We provide our communities with resources, books, events, and grow even more, but to do this we need your monthly support to keep us going! Please consider signing up to be a monthly sustainer and make sure that In Other Words stays around for the long-run.

Like every nonprofit, a majority of our funds go towards general operating costs of rent, utilities, salaries, and inventory.  However, much of our operating costs specifically fund the ongoing cultivation and maintenance of our lending library, zine library collection, and our artist craft consignment program.  As a primarily volunteer-run community center, In Other Words also proudly diverts funding to our Volunteer Leadership Development Program that cultivates a peer-to-peer mentorship model where volunteers develop and broaden their expertise and knowledge base.  Volunteers who may not have had the opportunity to lead or develop programs before are now entirely managing important aspects of In Other Words such as our monthly art show curation, our artist craft consignment program, our lending library, and managing our community programming events that take place on a daily basis at In Other Words.  Please give generously to fund one your favorite volunteer-run feminist community center.
