Dear Congregation

 

We come before you today with a divine mission that requires your support and generosity. We aim to resurrect the Church of the Open Mind, an extraordinary art car destined to return to Burning Man’s hallowed grounds.

But we cannot accomplish this holy endeavor without your help. We ask for your unwavering faith and financial contributions to breathe life back into the Church of the Open Mind. Repairs are needed to ensure its triumphant return.

If you haven’t already donated, please consider a gift today and know that it is tax-deductible and the ripples of your generosity will be felt by so many. And if you’ve already given, thank you SO much!

Dearest Burning Man Community, Art Lovers, and ardent supporters of the Church of the Open Mind!

¬†I invite you to make a tax-deductible donation to help keep the Church Rollin’ in 2024. Your financial support of artistic endeavors and our mission to spread Love, Light and Radical¬† Illumination on and off the Playa year-round is paramount to our mission!

We are making some upgrades to the mutant vehicle this year. Your financial contributions are most needed:

    1. A new oversized radiator so Captain Fantastic does not have to drive from San Rafael to BRC with the heat on in August!
    2. A backup camera for extra safety on and off playa
    3. New decking on the top floor to support our safety railings and keep the dance floor smooth for bare feet.
    4. Some new furniture & cushions for the chill spaces, so folks can take refuge from the heat or cold and rest in the arms of the community.
    5. Our “non-denominational” altar will get an upgrade.
    6. New Tires for the Truck base vehicle.
    7. General ongoing maintenance, speaker purchases and DJ equipment for guest spinners!
