The Union Project

Restoring Neighborhood Space to connect, create, and celebrate.

We have received an amazing response to the recent vandalism at the Union Project – in a little more than a month, almost half of our goal of $20,000 has been raised! Clean up efforts have been hugely successful with over 100 new volunteers joining many regular volunteers to clean up the damage. With the funds we’ve raised so far, we’ve started the work of installing a security system and new locks and are in the process of painting all the exterior trim, protecting all stained-glass windows, upgrading exterior lights and creating artistic and site-specific signage.

Good things are happening in spite of the destruction - but we need your ongoing help to make this vision a reality…

If everyone who receives this email would give just $10, we would meet our $20,000 goal! Every dollar goes toward improving the condition of the building and moving it closer to completion. Donating is easy to do - just click on the link below, and make a one-time or monthly secure donation with your credit card.

Thanks for your help, the Union Project couldn’t happen without you!
