We know that space rental is a major expense for many organizations, especially those starting out or operating on a smaller scale. By designating an architecturally remarkablevisually stunning, and functionally versatile space, we will support the activities of these organizations. Aside from subsidized work, conference, and event space, Kota will also provide other physical and virtual tools and services that organizations making a difference need. Administrative and programmatic benefits such as assistance with fundraising, member training, document and database organization, grant writing, etc. increases the efficiency and success of our member organizations.

Our mission is to reduce our members' overhead spending, so that they are able to channel more resources into their actual programs and mission as well as bring like-minded organizations together, fostering a physical proximity to foster collaboration.
