Funds are needed to assist with capital repair projects necessary to maintain and preserve the historic 40,000 square foot, 3 acre property. Roofing projects and replacement of significant portions of the flooring and HVAC systems will be required in the next two to three years, totaling $75,000-$100,000 or more.
COVID 19 closures have forced some depletion of emergency reserve for replacement funds that were required for essential operations and to maintain basic mechanical and facility components, to pay for mechanical failures and breakdowns such as gas line leaks, HVAC repairs, and upgrades to janitorial and sanitizing equipment.
Funding for technology enhancements to enable us to continue virtual and in-person activities for The Learnery, the Senior Center, and fundraising and community events: $25,000.

The Learnery: additional updates for the newly dedicated space and addition of special equipment for class offerings.
A dedicated space within Sierra 2 Center for The Learnery enables us to expand offerings, to include more classes focused on various art forms, food and beverage education, wellness, nature/wildlife/environment education, and technology. With the dedicated space now in operations, we need to add technology equipment and supplies for all activities. The space needs additional retro-fitting to the meet the needs of envisioned class offerings.
