We wish to express our sincerest thanks to all our Kickstarter backers for supporting Know Your City. Unfortunately, the fundraising campaign has come to a close without reaching our goal.
We remain committed to implementing Know Your City. Contrary to viewing this as a disappointment, we see this as first step to create an exciting tool for better understanding our communities. Part of being a nimble nonprofit organization is trying ideas out — and not being afraid to fail — or rethink the best way in which to make a project possible.
In the coming days we will strategize how to best move forward. We plan on applying for grants to supplement personal donations, as well as sponsorships. We want to state again that we believe strongly in the importance of this program, and we look forward to developing other ways in which to make the project possible.
If you support this project, and are interesting in pledging your support to make it possible, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know. By sending this quick note and expressing your support, you lend credibility to our grant applications — providing funds we can leverage that will speak to the community need of and desire for the project.
Once again, thank you so much for your support of our work to broaden knowledge of Portland’s past, present and future!
