  • Group Solidarity Sessions for connection and community dialogue

  • Exclusive events featuring local wellness practitioners, leaders and healers

  • One-to-one member care through coaching, innerwork and accountability

  • Member and open community events

It's finally time!

We are building a haven and moving into a new home! Render Free is ready to relaunch within our new space for the integration of rest, work, self-care and collective healing.

The Plan

Inspite of the hardship of a health pandemic, the collective trauma inflicted by the public murder of George Floyd, and a global uprising that began in our backyard. Render Free has completed two years of a “proof of concept” phase, with limited hours and a pop-up location. This time has proven the value and relevance of Render Free as a community resource.

 

Now, our goal is to raise $250,000 to see the fullest vision of this resource come to fruition. 

 

Your support will allow us to move into our new home, a location that will allow our community of members to access offerings five days a week for practicing the integration of rest, work, self-care and collective healing! Your contribution will also support the growth of our staff, creating new job opportunities and sustainability for the amazing team of people that keep Render Free growing.

Q: Is my contribution tax-deductible?

A:  Render Free LLC is a for-profit business. For this reason, your contribution is NOT tax deductible. New tax reform has actually helped us in this way, with the single deduction making it less important for many folks to ensure charitable support counts as a tax deductible write-off. However, if a  tax deductible gift is crucial to your support, we have formed a fiscal sponsorship arrangement with Ace in the City, a 501(c)3 nonprofit (and organizational partner).

Tax-deductible gifts (one-time and monthly) can be made by visiting http://www.aceinthecity.org/renderfree/
