To the friends and family of the Gowanus Studio Space,

For the last five years the Gowanus Studio Space has been blossoming into an institution providing practical, comprehensive workspace to artists and designers, as well as providing enriching events to the community. Those of you who have been involved in the studio in any regard will agree that the Gowanus Studio Space offers something you can’t find anywhere else.
It is with heavy hearts that we are coming to you with the fact that our studio is in dire straights. While we are making changes to ensure that this situation does not repeat itself, we are faced with the very real possibility of eviction from our home if we do not come up with $7500 by this Wednesday, June 13th.
In our years of being generous with our space, our hearts, and our talents we have never asked for financial support in this way. Unfortunately the time for being stoic is past and we are here asking you to PLEASE HELP SAVE THE GOWANUS STUDIO SPACE.
If you’ve ever enjoyed a beer, dance party, art show, workshop, film screening, poetry reading, or live music event in our space, just try to imagine for a second what it would be like if we couldn’t share that fun with you again. In a time of over-incorporation and “ironing out” of all that is eclectic or original, please help us now and ensure our survival as a vital cultural institution in Brooklyn.
No donation is too big or too small. Every little bit really, really does help.  If each of you gave $30, we would have enough to save GSS and right our course for a more sustainable future. If you can give more, please do. If you can’t, give what you can.
You can donate instantly here: DONATE ON PAYPAL or at www.gowanusstudio.org/donate. You may also remit checks the old-fashioned way to: The Gowanus Studio Space, 166 7th St, Brooklyn NY. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email fundraising@gowanusstudio.org or call Sue Schaffner at (347) 948-5753. For tax deductible donations, remit checks made payable to Brooklyn Arts Council to 55 Washinton St, Suite 218, Brooklyn NY 11201. Checks must have “The Gowanus Studio Space” written in the memo field.
You can also support us by becoming a member, gowanusstudio.org/membership, or by signing up for one of our upcoming workshops, gowanusstudio.org/classes. Also, keep an eye out for a fundraising auction in the coming months!
In whichever way you can support us, thank you deeply and truly, from the bottoms of our hearts.
Sincerely,
The Members of the Gowanus Studio Space
