1. Assumes an initial house for 12 girls.

2. Three trips for 3-5 people. Assuming we can identify volunteers for the annual assessment, this also includes their travel expenses.

3. Marketing fees include web, web design, hosting, printing, letter campaigns, printing.

4. In order to simplify the budget, this number reflects an annualized lease and will be re-entered into next year’s budget as a recurring expense if we do not raise the required funds to purchase a house. For Phase 1, we will make the decision to buy or lease based on the availability of funds. From there, the availability of funds will determine whether or not we can pursue Phase 2.

Phase 1a Total: $183,450
Phase 1a PLUS Phase 2 Total: $488,450
Phase 1b Total: $139,450
Phase 1b PLUS Phase 2 Total: $444,450
Our goals, and resulting plans for fundraising, involve fully realizing the purchase of a house and the purchase/development of a self-sustaining campus. In this scenario, the initial house will be transitioned into a safe house for abused women.
