Hi Guys,

Really excited to see some of these projects get started. We have been helping fund a few other things in NHV as well. Examples of what they look like on SeeClickFix might give some context to the big picture. 

Example 1: http://seeclickfix.com/issues/229653-support-a-2nd-cardboard-bus-bench

Example 2: http://seeclickfix.com/issues/229256-support-the-east-rock-festival...

To get started:

1) please report your fundable project on SeeClickFix 

2) Email me to let me know you have done it and how much money you are looking to raise

3) I'll give you a paypal button and we're off to the races.
