Hey we recently got this email (it’s starred in the info@ inbox) which might be of relevance or worth having a look into with regards to this. The website is so slick now though! well done @Lai @Insideout
I’m getting in touch on behalf of Brent Mutual Aid & The Social Change Agency.
I’m one of the admins for Brent Mutual Aid and Willesden Green Mutual Aid, I wanted to flag up a service we’ve been using to fundraise as I think it’ll also be helpful for your community efforts.
It’s a site called Open Collective that allows you to receive donations or payments into your group mutual aid account, and then make payments out to volunteers for things like shopping, petrol etc… or to admins for mutual aid costs without relying on someone’s private bank account. It’s been really helpful in Brent, so they’ve asked me to reach out to other groups so we can spread the word.
Here are some of the mutual aid groups using it: https://opencollective.com/the-social-change-agency
If it sounds potentially useful for your group, I’d be happy to talk it through with you and show you how we’ve been using it, / email@example.com. There’s also more info on this website here: https://thesocialchangeagency.org/nest-supporting-new-movements/fiscal-hosting/
Good luck with your efforts!
