At the Embassy SF our goal is to manifest community as a platform, and to continually be pushing the boundary of new ways of sharing and transparency. Part of that means redirecting any surplus income back into the community.

How does it work?

Our guest program contributes an amount to the running of the house, and anything left over is allocated towards projects we care about. We are able to involve the members of our community directly in allocating net profit, through a process called collaborative budgeting. Each guest, member and resident of the Embassy is allocated a proportional share of this net profit, as a function of the number of days they spent in the house that month — even if they only stayed one night.
