Monthly budget goal?

Olga A Kochergina

What is monthly budget $$ we are fundraising toward? 

The description lists that we averaged 2550$ in grocery requests and $650 in aid for neighboring wards PER WEEK, so it sounds like we are looking for 3200$ weekly or 13K Monthly operating budget? 

For me it would be helpful to be aware of/see the difference between the current recurring budget and the goal $$.

Hi Olga! That's a good question. based on our report, we are fundraising towards at least $10k a month. But if we raise twice that, we would direct funds to support other wards, plus expand support into rental assistance, bills, etc. The sky is the limit! But to cover what we have been doing since March, it's about $10k a month.

We actually need closer to 14,000 each month to keep up with the current level of need and continue contributing to other wards.  Open Collective publishes the "budget" based on how much has been donated so far - we don't seem to have control over it!  Thank you for asking :)
