Crowdfunder Success

Crowdfunder Success
You have helped make the new home for the Feminist Library possible

 On 31st March we came to the end of our exciting Crowdfunder journey! As we close this amazing period we would like to extend massive thanks to the whole Crowdfunder UK team, all of our donors, our fabulous design team, all our dedicated volunteers, and everyone who has supported us along the way. It wouldn’t have been such an incredible success story without the support we have received from the community, so we will remain eternally grateful.

Together, we have raised:

  • nearly £49,000! which is
  • 163% of our initial target! and
  • 102% of our stretch target!
  • as well as over £20,000 in off-line donations!

We have now covered the full budget for Feminist Library move! This is wonderful news, which means we can start getting the new home of Feminist Library ready very soon – and it will be beautiful!

This weekend, we had a crafternoon / volunteers social and celebrated this massive win with some of our wonderful team.

In the next couple of weeks, we hope to start works on the new space and make it ready for the opening. We are still in process of finalising the timelines of the move, but we will let everyone know once these have been settled. So watch this space for dates of our big opening party!

As we get ready to say goodbye to our home of 33 years, we also take a bit of a trip down memory lane. Our current Library home – getting ready for the move, all packed up and in boxes – looks like this at the moment; as seen by one of our amazing creative volunteers and the artist behind our move dragon, Pops Comixs.

If you would like to support the Library financially on a more ongoing basis please consider becoming a Friend with a small monthly donation.
