(updated: December 29, 2020)

We've been able to raise just over $5,700* for our first fundraising campaign! 

Thank you to all our amazing supporters who have pitched in during this maelstrom of a year. Thank you for sticking with us as we sail on: developing resources across borders, caring for the artists and cultural workers who care for us, and dreaming of new ways to navigate every storm. Our 2020 annual report goes into more detail about what we've been up to. 

This year, we spent much more than expected in order to redirect as many funds as possible towards emergency grants. These funds helped creative people who needed extra support to shelter in safely, make up lost income, and all the ways financial resources make survival and better futures possible. If you have the means to give, can you help us raise the remaining $10,300 to close out the end of the year? 

The primary way to donate is through With.Friends! Here, you can give on a recurring basis as a member (and get fun perks!) or give a one-time donation.


For supporters who would like to waive the tax deduction, you can actually double your donation! With the generous assistance of a board member, all donations made through this platform will be matched 100% through their corporate employee benefits program.


Your support will go towards building a more open, collaborative, caring, and sustainable creative world.

*With.Friends isn't the whole story! You can also donate on Facebook, through the PayPal Giving Fund, Venmo (@chinares), Cashapp ($ChinaResidencies), and on our website.

If you want to mail a check, get rid of the air miles you're not using, bequeath a building to CLOUD 9, just email us at amanda@chinaresidencies.com and we'll work it out!

And last but not least, as a special treat from our generous friends at the Doomsday Supper Club, we'd like to share a way giving can be fun, especially if we do it together. Presenting...

About Doomsday Supper Club

Since the early days of the Great Quarantine, the Doomsday Supper Club has been extending a helping hand to those in need of quality, spontaneous social interaction. Within the walls of our vintage 1990 establishment, we have been able to connect our patrons with one another through the medium of text, click and gasp.
