NW Change Agent Center, a resource for our movement
Backbone Campaign has been negotiating a purchase agreement for a beautiful 9 acre property, the former IYH Youth Hostel on Vashon Island. It has been the site of our training camps, and now we're working to make it a year round resource to our movement and HQ for Backbone. We're launching a capital campaign to raise $1.5 million by October 1, 2018.
The first step, however, is to raise $130k earnest money by Feb 8. If we meet that goal, our draft purchase agreement allows us to engage in a feasibility phase until May 1, without risk. If before May 1, we and our partners determine that the project is not feasible then the earnest money is refunded. If we determine that this vision is feasible, we will move forward and have until October 1, 2018 to arrange all financing, risking $52k of earnest money if we fail to raise the necessary funding.
