Can you pay more? Do you need to pay less? Let us know. We offer gathering space to our community at accessible and equitable rates. Our sliding scale reflects the vast range of resources in Seattle and in our neighborhood of Hillman City, allowing us to offer low cost space to grassroots organizations and community groups. Our Supporting Rate helps us subsidize our Solidarity Rate, and even offer free gathering space on occasion.
Please assess your access to resources honestly, and help us meet our goals accountably and sustainably.
The Ravenna Collab aims to provide affordable gathering space in South Seattle, a place where the cost of living and rental rates are increasingly more expensive. With a new sliding scale pricing model, we redoubled our efforts to make the Collab accessible to grassroots and community organizations, longtime residents, and emerging businesses.
We do this through a Sustaining Rate, our base rate, ensuring we make our bottom line every month to cover costs. From here, we added a Solidarity Rate and a Supporting Rate. These rates go hand in hand in our financial model because where we give up income to ensure affordable rates for individuals and organizations with low-to-no budgets (-10%), we make up through the generosity of supportive partners (+15%) who pay more in solidarity.
Thank you for considering the entire community when choosing which rate is best for you and your company.
