2021 Annual appeal

Coming soon: The DANK Treffpunkt

2021 Fundraising Goal: $54,000

After 54 years of owning our building, we are expanding into our street-level space. The future DANK Treffpunkt  ("meeting place") will offer something for all of our guests, including a café, welcome desk, gift shop, art gallery, class space, and event space for workshops and films. 

If we meet our fundraising goal of $54,000 in end-of-year donations, we will have a Phase I Grand Opening in Spring 2022. Thank you for your donation and for helping us make the Treffpunkt become a reality!
