[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.)

For reference, the recent EA Hotel fundraising posts: 1, 2, 3
