Help Donate To 924 Gilman

924 Gilman, where AFI played back in the day, are looking for donations to help with the increased rent they are facing which may put them out of buisness. The buildings website says:

"On July 1, 2010 our rent will increase to nearly $7000.00 a month (as of now it’s approximately $4300.00), jeopardizing the future of 924 Gilman. The club’s rent has been increasing every year for the last twenty three years, and up until now we’ve been able to make the adjustments needed to compensate for those increases, but what we are facing now is the equivalent of having twenty years of rent increases condensed into one, and once it goes into effect the clock will begin to tick away as we struggle to generate the extra $31,000.00 a year needed to cover this massive rent hike.

Please donate and give whatever you can to help 924 Gilman face this latest challenge to our existence. If you make a donation of $25.00 or more, then we will send you a Gilman t-shirt or tote bag as a token of our appreciation. Please add special instructions when you make a donation indicating your t-shirt size."
