Great News! - The Meher Archive Collective has secured the Red Oak School property!
By Baba’s Grace, this first phase has been achieved through dozens of heartfelt donations, along with an intense process of renegotiation with the sellers, which resulted in a reduction of the purchase price from $725,000 to $550,000 and a closing date of August 17th.
Baba has begun to turn the key! With this exciting news, we are jumping into the next phase of our capital campaign. Our overall fundraising goal remains the same, and this next phase will require $700,000 in order to proceed with planned renovations in as timely and cost-effective manner as possible. This work includes immediate repairs to the roof as well as bringing essential systems (including HVAC, electrical and plumbing) up to required standards.
For those of you attending the Asheville Music Sahavas this weekend, we are organizing a tour of the property on Sunday afternoon at 2:30. If you are interested, there will be a sign-up sheet at the Sahavas. There will also be other opportunities to have a tour if you are not able to make this one.
Thank You to all who have helped reach this important first step! We invite you to share this exciting news and sincerely hope that many more people will participate in the next step toward realizing MAC’s vision (whether through a direct donation to the building fund, a recurring monthly donation, or the contribution of services).
Beloved Meher Baba Ki Jai!
In His Love and Service,
