Financial Stewardship & Investment

Revenue Roles: Fueling Our Collective Effort

In the broader landscape of societal transformation, resources play a pivotal role. It's an inescapable reality that "money makes the world go round" and, at Urban Array, we acknowledge this truth and strategically position ourselves to be effective in this context.

Our Revenue roles are dedicated to securing the funds required to catalyze and sustain our transformative community projects. They negotiate partnerships, orchestrate crowdfunding campaigns, and organize fundraising events, all while maintaining a keen focus on our mission.

However, our financial foundation is not solely built on external fundraising; it's also about the sacrifices we make as members of this movement. We understand that unlocking our collective volunteer potential requires tangible resources – insurance, sustenance, security, software, and more. Therefore, every member contributes not just time and effort, but also shares in the financial commitment needed to propel our mission forward.

By investing in our cause, we not only strengthen our resolve but also ensure that our impact is felt deeply within the communities we serve. Together, we can make every dollar count towards building sustainable, thriving communities.
