Please Help with Our Electrical Upgrade

As a non-profit, volunteer-driven art center, funding is often very tight for us. We also need to  face the realities of operating out of an 1898 Victorian building that requires frequent upgrading and maintenance. Our goal today is to raise $8500 to overhaul and upgrade our second floor electrical service (currently only 50 amp) and modify and install new classroom lighting. This will allow us to increase our class offerings and art group meeting space availability which in turn will increase our cash flow.
