Tent City Collective
Welcome to Tyler Simpson's Personal Fundraising Page!
I've been with Tent City Collective for 4 months, and in that time I've seen incredible work and passion at a grassroots level to bring basic humans rights to people that have been denied them.
Tent City 3 is an effective temporary solution for the housing crisis and gives up to 100 folks a safe living situation, community, and home. It costs money to operate beyond the resources UW is providing.
Your contribution will make the stay a success that can be replicated in the future.
Who We Are
Tent City 3, one of Seattle’s authorized encampment of about 100 people, is coming to the University of Washington-Seattle this winter!
TC3 has been authorized to move into UW's Parking Lot W-35 on December 17th and stay until March 18th. Now, we need your help to welcome our new neighbors!
What We Do
Tent City Collective is a group of UW students, Tent City 3 residents, and greater Seattle community members. Our mission is to end homelessness in Seattle. We envision a unified city, where solutions to the housing crisis are informed by the experiences and opinions of people who have experienced homelessness.
Why Your Donation Matters
TC3 is funded through donations like yours. This winter's stay at UW was more expensive than expected, so with your help we would like to lift the burden on TC3 by raising money for a month of garbage disposal (~$830), and for a few months of Honey Bucket use (~$3300). These two utilities are critical for TC3 to continue functioning!
Finally, we are trying to raise money for a new generator for TC3. There is no electricity at their new site, so this is especially important! We are looking to buy a 7000 watt Honda Whisper for $2400. We want to give TC3 a parting gift that will keep the entire camp running.
We believe that encampments are an important solution to homelessness in Seattle. By helping resource TC3’s stay at UW, you can be a part of the solution.
This project currently has no updates.

Make an Impact
Don't have much to give? No problem! Small donations add up. In the long run, your $1, $2, or $5 donation will be worth much more than a cup of coffee.
Seattle Garbage Account
A $25 donation could cover the cost of having a garbage account with the city of Seattle.
Your $50 donation could help TC3 cover the basics, by bringing TC3 *that much* closer to paying for a ~$250/week garbage disposal fee!
Keep TC3's toilets running!
Your donation could help keep TC3’s toilets running! TC3’s Honey Buckets are emptied around 2-3 times every week -- a highly important utility that costs about $80/week.
