Inn Needs

Image of Bar



The Inn is very badly in need of some very specific things. These things will help the Inn become self-supportive and expand to help us serve you better. Please look this page over to see if you can contribute some or all of a specific need. All contributors will receive an update as things happen and will receive special recognition on the Inn Supporters page. Thanks, without your help we couldn't continue.

Grant Writer:

The Inn has need of a grant writer who knows the ins and outs of writing winning grant proposals that gets the entity the money it needs to carry on. The monies from the grant will pay for such things as new computers, printers, software, and other equipment. This grant will pay for these most urgently needed items. The estimated grant required is $100,000.

The fee must be paid only after the grant has been fulfilled.

The following are examples of what is needed and the estimated costs:

Acer Extensa EX4420-5910 Notebook PC - AMD Turion 64 X2 Dual-Core Mobile TL-60 2.0GHz, 4GB DDR2, 250GB, DVDRW, 14.1" WXGA, Windows® Vista * $800
Systemax X58 PC Core i7-920 2.66 GHz Quad-Core / 3GB DDR3-1333 Corsair Triple Channel / 1TB hard Drive / DVDRW / 2 x HD4850 Crossfire / Vista Ultimate * $1,900
3 Acer X193Wb 19" Widescreen LCD Monitor - 5ms, 2000:1, 1440x900(WXGA+), VGA, Black * $330
X-Keys Desktop USB 20 Key Programmable Keypad * $90.00
ACECAD DigiMemo 692 Digital Notepad Memory, Case & Extra Pen * $200.00
2 Toshiba e805 128MB Pocket PC's (PDA)* $1200
HP/Compaq XW4100 Intel Pentium 4 3GHz HyperThreading Technology / 1GB DDR / 160GB SATA / DVD+RW / ATI Pro 256MB Video / Windows XP Pro / Workstation * $1400
DoubleSight DS-1500 Dual / 15-Inch / 2048 x 768 / Silver/ LCD Monitor * $850
Minolta QMS Color Laser Printer * $800
Xerox or Canon Copier * $2,500
Minolta PS3000 Scanner Used * $5,000 to $8,000
Mustek USB 11 X 17 A3 Large Format Flatbed Scanner *$300
Plustek Opticbook 3600 Book Scanner * $400
Book repair and care equipment * $5,000
Network/Server Cables, Rack, Cards, Wireless Adaptors, Hubs, Routers, etc * $1,000
Digital Camera * $800
2 CyberPower Server Power 1500AVR Battery Backups * $400
Microsoft Vista Ultimate * $400
3 Microsoft Office * $800
Adobe Web Design Package * $1200
Website Link Check and Ranking * $6000 for 5 years ($1200 for 1 year)
DSL * $1,920 for 5 years ($384 for 1 year)
Extended warranties and service packages * $1500
General expenses for ink, paper and other office supplies * $1,000
Bookcases, Computer Desk, Chair, Lateral Filing Cabinets, etc * $2,000
Modernize the website to be more user friendly, especially for the disabled * $15,000
Lightning Protection System * $2,000
Back Up Generator * $2,000 (used)
Window Cooler * $400

The total so far is $58,990 to $61,990 for equipment, software, paper & supplies. This takes up more than 60% of the $100,000 we need. This should hold us for a few years.

We spend over $1,000 to $2,000 a year of our own money for equipment and materials, a grant means we can get the equipment we need, care for our rare and antique books properly and be able to update the site. Our numbers speak for themselves, we know that were helping and making a difference.

The above have all been picked to last for years and to be updated with ease.

And if possible I need a grant for $100,000 to cover medical equipment, medical bills and those prescriptions as well. I have been admitted for long stay 3 times in 2008, plus every week I have to go in.
A little known rip-off is places like Apria charging $450 a month for an oxygen concentrator that costs only $2,500 new and a 5 year warranty is $300.

Colorado Incorporation:

If the Inn can incorporate itself it then has the ability to expand and grow into a well-functioning website. It will take the burden of the Inn off the owners and help them to search out new possibilities for the Inn. Incorporation can cost up to $500.

Cash Donations:

We need cash donations to keep us up and running. Any cash donations will be used, unless otherwise specified, to purchase reference books, pay for monthly services used by Inn, advertising and too many other things to mention.

I will also accept Gift Cards from Sams, Wal-Mart, Barnes & Noble, City Circuit, Best Buy and others. Just email me and I will send you the information that you need.
