Your Kindness will be Acknowledged at The Seth House
As a way of honoring our benefactors and contributors The Seth House will erect a wall of names at The Welcome Center as soon as it is established. The names of all of our donors will be lovingly and artfully displayed for all to see. As new people donate to this cause, their names will also be added on. We will, of course, include the names of those who give their physical labor. We will gratefully and publicly acknowledge all who support this project. This list is already posted on this website – https://www.thesethhouse.com/donor-wall/ Thank you.
For Donors Thinking in Terms of Estate Planning
Individuals making End-of-This-Life decisions can choose to remember THE SETH HOUSE by making the 501(c)(3) a beneficiary in their wills. This would play an important role in creating the long range financial wellness for this Non-Profit Organization and help to strengthen and secure its future development.
Charitable contributions are an important part of planning one’s will. So when it’s time to graduate from the earth plane, please consider what you leave behind. It’s nice to be part of something that outlives us in earthly terms. These are end of life paperwork decisions that we all have to make. So as we all plan ahead for leaving this dimension gracefully, be sure to direct your earthly wealth to where it will do the most good. Remembering family, friends, and charitable contributions are all a part of these important considerations.
A will is your last ‘Love Letter’ to the world. So we hope you keep The Seth House in mind if this is something you would like to help nurture along. We all have to be mindful of how we want our earthly stuff to be sorted out as we move on to new realities.
If The Seth House is on your last ‘Gift List’ – We Sincerely Thank You – and we wish you a joyful journey on your next adventure… 😉
Where will the money go?
All contributions received will go directly to making The Seth House a reality forevermore.
How much will the building cost?
The current owner is a friend of ours and we have been discussing the price and other related matters for over 2 years. We are leaning towards this being a partial donation to the 501c3 as well as a longterm agreement to give him monthly payments for 20+ years for a total of $200,000 including interest. This includes purchase of 2 large buildings on a large lot with ample parking. These are apartments, commercially zoned income property, at a high profile downtown location.
Repairs & maintenance?
Legal fees, bills, and other considerations?
Yep, there’s lots of that too.
What’s the total cost?
It will never end.
Is it worth it?
Can it make money to support itself eventually?
You bet. It’s an apartment building with 8 units and there’s a separate large Carriage House (4 bedroom guest house) in the back. These can be rented out to visitors as guest lodgings. Let’s call it a “Seth AirBnB”. There can be conferences and other events held on site, which would generate funds, as well as good company and new friends.
In the future, the 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization can also apply for grants from foundations that would support various aspects of what we do. This place has lots of potential and our group has lots of ideas. For now though, we need to get some legs under it, and more money in the bank. And in the here and now – We need to buy this building so we can move forward in big and beautiful ways.
We hope this is something that people will see deep value in and will support financially. Today and tomorrow.
We have been paying for repairs and start-up costs out of our own pockets and with our hard work.
It needs outside financial support, grants, and creative fundraising, so let’s do this together… 🙂
We also need more cool friends… Other kind and caring human hearts who want to share this journey with us.
PEOPLE POWER! 🙂 VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
DONATE YOUR TIME & ENERGY
Generate Good Karma 💙 Meet Good People
This is a team effort and we are inviting more people to be on the team. We would like to meet like-minded and good-hearted new friends to join us here. We are beginning the next stage of manifesting the Seth House, so let’s bring more people along to enjoy this new phase of the journey and to share this vision.
Because we are raising funds to purchase the building, we are not yet able to offer a paycheck yet. However, volunteering often leads to a paid position. So when we can start paying people, we will hire from the volunteers who gave of themselves in these early stages.
Here are things we need help with that we’d LOVE people to bring their energy to :
Fixing Stuff • Carpentry • Painting • Fundraising • Grant Writing • AirBnB Host • Community Outreach • Videographers • Computer Stuff • Development Director • Finance Director • Property Manager • Programming Director • Talking About Seth • Creatively Channeling the Highest Good for All • Can someone help put on a GoFundMe CrowdFunding Campaign?
Whatever you think you can bring to this adventure – we probably need it.
Also, because ‘word of mouth’ is the best advertising, please be one of our advertisers by helping to spread the word about what’s going on here at The Seth House. We need more public awareness brought to this place so it can grow.
Please write, call, and come on over. You will be appreciated and adored beyond your wildest dreams. Be in touch, we’d love to hear from you.
Something magical is happening at The Seth House. Be part of it.
