The Foundation has found a new home! We are very pleased to continue our cohabitation with our sister organization, the Center for Sex Positive Culture, in Ballard. We have signed a long term lease for 1514 NW 46th St, Seattle, WA 98107. This space has a dedicated parking lot with 18 spaces and there is unrestricted, free street parking throughout the neighborhood. For those that use transit, we will be a short distance from a bus stop along the routes of the 40 and D-line. We are very happy to have found a location that is so close to our old space.
Moving in and Getting Started
We take possession of the building in December and are already working on the permit process. Due to the volume the city is experiencing and the upcoming holidays, this process may take longer than usual. We will start construction as soon as legally possible. Some things like cleaning and painting the office can be done as soon as we move in, whereas other tasks will be dependant on where we are in the permit process. Given what we know of the timing, we are aiming to begin hosting workshops and Enthusiast Groups in our new space in Spring of 2017. We will share more specific dates as we know more. In the meantime, we will host board meetings and Discussion/Support Group meetings, and reopen the Library in this new space as soon as possible.
What You Can Do to Help
While we do have funds to get this project underway; how much our community can contribute will make a difference in really taking this space to the next level. You can donate here. Whether you can give a little or a lot, we appreciate all who can contribute monetarily. Please keep an eye out for fundraisers and specific drives where we will fundraise for specific things for the new space. Some of these special projects we won’t be able to do without your help, so please donate to the things you really want to see in our new home.
If you are interested in volunteering to help with anything in the construction process please [email protected] to be put on the new building volunteer list. You do not have to be a CSPC volunteer to help out. Please tell us about any special skills you have in construction, electrical, plumbing, or weight-lifting. This is a big project. We will need all kinds of help, so even if you can’t lift things or swing a hammer, there are still lots of ways to be a part of this exciting time.
We will still be hosting workshops at Club Sapphire until our new home is ready. We have permission from our landlord to have meetings in the office of the new building. As soon as we have that space set up, we will begin having Discussion and Support Group meetings in the new space. Please see our calendar for more details.
Thank you all for your continued support of the Foundation for Sex Positive Culture!
