Together, we’ve built a thriving, badass, supportive community—Fort is iconic, and it’s become a representation of who we are and what we love. Now, we need your help to get a tent that’s as iconic as our squad.
After five years of Bass Coast winds and Shambhala rains, our tent can’t hold our battle-hardened crew through another season.
Our new tent is going to be an absolute stunner. It’s a marriage of longevity, protection, and style that’d put Murphy himself on his ass. Crafted from the same materials as Bass Coast’s Cantina, our new home will have a 5-year waterproofing guarantee, heavy duty weather protection, and our own custom print on top. Your team of Fort vets are already hard at work designing a 360 degree booth, an all-white interior ceiling for projections, game and bar spaces, and twice the square footage of our current structure.
Oh, and four memory foam, queen-sized, raised beds for you to cuddle puddle on.
Yes, beds. We’re going back to our roots—even though we look better and party harder, it’s all about keeping our community cozy and tight-knit. Our two MVPs from last year will be Minister’s of community experience and comfort. This means we’ll have merch, new member orientations, care kits, more games like the Wheel of Doom, and more janky parties (Fortmasx2) for years to come. It’s poppin’ off sis.
We’re raising the funds to make all this a reality, and we’re already halfway to our goal of $20,000.
To hit our mark, we just need 75% of us to step forward with $250 each. For the cost of 5 nights out, you can help Fort continue to be the fun, creative, and community space you know and love. If you’re part of the 25% that are low on dough, but want to contribute, contact me. There are, and always will be other ways you can contribute. It takes a village, and every member counts.
To the friends who aren’t direct members – any amount helps us thrive, and we thank you for it.
Donors will be immortalized in a custom tapestry—our very own Last Supper—for the new space, with each individual turned into a character sized proportionally to what they gave.
Things like Fort do not exist often in this world, and they do not exist by accident. Fort is the goosebumps you get when you’re on the dancefloor, surrounded by beautiful friends, inside and out. Fort is the pride you feel talking about our camp, our members, and the space we create.
For something made up while rolling around in farm dirt with a unicorn head on a stick, the impact we’ve had in ten years is profound. For ten years, you’ve always gotten your money’s worth. Help us make the next ten even more documentary-worthy.
Commander & Founder, Fort Saint McMurphy
