[Question] Why is the EA Hotel having trouble fundraising?

As far as I can tell, the EA Ho­tel hasn’t pul­led in much money dur­ing its pre­sent fundrais­ing drive (see its Pa­treon & its GoFundMe).

I’m cu­ri­ous about why this is, and whether it’s in­dica­tive of a broader dy­namic op­er­at­ing in the com­mu­nity. (It re­minds me of the situ­a­tion the Berkeley REACH was in last year: 1, 2.)
