Dear ODW Supporters,

In little over two years, the grassroots movement of ODW has achieved some amazing things.

We've been able to raise over 1 million dollars and invested nearly $700,000 in 32 partnerships around the world. Just recently, we announced our latest fully funded grant that will impact over 3000 people in Far-western Nepal and as we write this, we're about to announce additional grants, funds, and partnerships. As it's been from the beginning, 100% of our donations go to carefully vetted projects and partnerships.

As such, our operations is growing and we really need your help. We're not asking for your money but rather, we're asking for some space and/or connections.

What's your biggest need right now?

We need a larger office. We need a larger office. We need a larger office.

What does your current operations look like?

Amazingly, we've done this with one full-time staff, and several volunteers and interns all cramped together in a 250 square foot office in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. 

Yes, our headquarters is 250 square feet. We can promise you that our visitors never get lost in our headquarters.

What kind of office are you looking for? What can you afford?

We're looking to our supporters to see if they can connect us to their network of friends or companies that have some free or cheap space:

  • Space that's over 500 square feet in the Seattle area. Emphasis on over. Ideally, we'd love to be in a space that's 1000 square feet.
  • Free rent would be amazing but if now, something close to our current rent ($605/month) would be ideal.
  • We have about 2-4 people working during the day and currently on Wednesday nights, our entire volunteer staff (8 people) get together for a weekly work synergy collaborative party grassroots bonanza.
I don't have any office space and don't know anyone but can I make a donation to ODW's administration fund to help cover some rent?
Is this a trick question?
Umm, yes! That would be deeply appreciated, too. You can make a donation to our Admin Fund here.
