Help Us Reach Our Goals 

We've got big plans for the future, We want to change the world for the better, and we believe we can do it with your help. By donating to Obvi, you are supporting every facet of our work.

Every dollar will go toward operating costs for Obvi including both our online platform and workshop series. Currently Obvi is operated 100% on volunteered time from our contributors to our leadership.  We strongly believe in artists being compensated for their work, so our goal is to have a dedicated monthly freelance budget to support writers looking to build a career out of their writing portfolio.

Here are some of our immediate financial goals:


We want to launch an online merch store so everyone can show their Obvi support on a day-to-day basis. This will provide fantastic artist collaboration opportunities, and our goal is for this store to constantly generate a monthly freelance budget.



We would like to be present at at least 2 local Chicago street festivals this summer.  This will help us raise awareness about our programs, sell merchandise, and fundraise within the Chicago community.
