Almost at Goal: Still Have 7 Subscriptions to Go


Dear Friends,

This is one of the more simple asks we have.  The Vanguard this month moved into its beautiful new offices at Pollinate Davis.  It’s a great facility and opportunity to grow.  It’s one that will cost us roughly $350 to $500 more per month, however.

We have received the funding for the next two months from donors, but we would like to be able to secure the funding on a recurring basis.

We have asked people to become subscribers at $10 per month minimum.  So far, we have had 28 new subscribers.

What we need from this message today is just 7 of you to step up and support the Vanguard at $10 a month.  (We need fewer if you are willing to go to $15 or $20 or even higher).

I know everyone here can afford that, it is just a matter of going to the donation site: and clicking the “recurring payment” button on the bottom right part of the form.

I know everyone here values the service that the Vanguard performs in the community and I hope at least twenty of you will make this commitment today.

And once again – thank you to all of you who have helped us so much over the years.

    Mr. Greenwald,

    I hope this photo is not indicative of the Vanguard’s lack of an “open door” policy when it comes to dealing with the public. (Unconscious inadvertencies like this photo usually hit close to the truth) I think I’ll just stay a member of the general public for now.

      What an interesting perspective. I have seen that picture every day since posted and never once saw it that way. I am wondering if you were able to attend the Vanguard open house at the Pollinate space ?
