EB PREC will share successes & learnings from our Esther’s Orbit Room Capital Campaign, which brought in over $5 Million to acquire and rehabilitate Esther’s Orbit Room in West Oakland. The team will share specific learnings geared towards the needs of both community and capital stewards:

  • > For community stewards:
    • > Learn from EB PREC’s experience and 4 years of field building to successfully launch our Esther’s Orbit Room capital campaign, including building your capital stack and negotiating with Funders.
    • > How to show up in an authentic, sovereign way to build a more equal power dynamic with Funders.
    • > How to create a capital campaign that builds from existing relationships and leverages your organization’s strengths.
  • > For capital stewards:
    • > Learn from EB PREC’s capital stack & fundraising process to understand best practices for non-extractive finance: interest rates, terms, documents, and other legal/technical solutions.
    • > How to build non-extractive relationships with community members for authentic relationship-building.
    • > What questions to ask to ensure the investment/due diligence process is community-centered.

We hope by the end of this workshop, both community and capital stewards will leave with lessons learned re: what they can do to overcome barriers to both receiving and deploying capital.
