Support the Local


DDS is completely funded by small-dollar donations from our members and other associates who support our work in the Dubuque community. 

We spend $50-100 per month on printing and material expenses alone. Other costs include those associated with facilities rentals, web hosting, and promotional advertising for events. Currently, a small number of members cover these expenses on an ad hoc basis. However, this is unsustainable. Your financial support would allow us to streamline our purchasing decisions and continue to use vendors that are unionized and/or certified worker cooperatives



A recurring monthly contribution would greatly assist us in responsibly expanding our community organizing, outreach, and educational efforts.


Monthly Donations
