Where is my patreon contribution going?

We’re using all of our patron support to pay for all of our smaller costs that are coming up. This includes:- printing posters, information cards, business cards, and zines;
- paying for monthly event venue space;
- paying for our entertainment including other artists, musicians, performers, and DJ’s;
- paying for our website;
- paying for refreshments at our drop-in hours at SPECTRUM Community Space;
- reimbursing travel expenses for the organizers who travel between cities visiting other organizations; and
- paying for crafting materials like paper, card stock, paint supplies, fabrics, wood, canvas, and anything else we need to make your sized craft boxes a reality!

Why are you using Patreon to fund Plan B right now?

We recognize that we live in a current society that sees money as a give and take. One works hard to get money to pay for nice things when the reality is that very few people have access to a living wage. We do not wish to depend on financial donations from the hard working and valued members of our communities. Part of this community project is bringing forth other ways to crowdsource projects like Plan B; why don’t we do things to give back to our community supporters by offering packages? That is why we are using a platform like Patreon that offers us opportunities to give back to our patrons!

Are you using any other source to fund Plan B?

In these early stages before we incorporate, there is not very many options to fund the smaller expenses like venue spaces, printing, artist or musician fees, application and processing fees, or even bus tickets and food. We are continually researching grants to apply to and have been collecting small funds through a change drive at any event we have. This Patreon platform is an addition to the many ways we are taking to make Plan B.

Who has access to the money?

Right now, our Patreon is hooked up to our PayPal account. Our PayPal account is linked directly to our bank account registered at Your Neighbourhood Credit Union in Waterloo, Ontario. There is only one organizer who has access to this bank account and is storing our financial statements.
