Here's what we need money for.

More Make Shift Coffee Houses in more places! Especially places that are typically underserved. If you would like to sponsor one or more Make Shift Coffee Houses, let's talk about your goals. Anonymous gifts are welcome.

We believe that Make Shift Coffee House is replicable and scalable. And we can see that it's making an impact. These events are helping us get along better, in spite of our differences.

Make Shift Coffee Houses should be happening across the country in all kinds of settings. We want people to organize and facilitate them without Craig. We want to see multiple Make Shift Coffee Houses in the same community over time. 

To support this dream our short term focus is on making an impact here in Maine, our home state. Maine is small enough to make a real difference here, yet also reflective of national political demographics. What we achieve and learn here will have national significance.

Thank you for joining our dream. All gifts are deeply appreciated, no matter the size. 

If you would like more specifics or would like to discuss with Craig, please jot me an email.
