Parlour’s crowdfunding campaign, launched to ensure the survival of its broad range of services, is nearing its deadline and the organisation is desperately seeking a few more pledges from the community in order to reach its target of $25,000.
Over the past three years, Parlour has become an important space for people in the industry to discuss, advocate and collect resources about gender equity and architecture.
However, the initial funding for the research project has now finished and the media platform has turned to a crowd sourced funding campaign so that it can continue evolving into an organisation that develops new initiatives and research.

Parlour is now considered an incorporated association, which means it's officially recognised as a not-for-profit organization and will rely on sponsors and donors to survive.
As the organisation notes:
“[We] want to ensure that the Parlour discussions and resources continue to be available to all. To do this we need support from like-minded organisations, business and individuals who value our work and its results.”
At the time of print, the campaign has raised $19,180 with a goal of raising $25,000. Parlour notes that if they don’t reach their target they will not receive any of the donations, as per the crowdfunding campaign conditions.
The campaign will finish 13 July, 2015 and to donate to the campaign please visit here:
