The first thing you’ll likely notice is that we’ve moved the website away from Tyler’s personal blog and into a stand-alone page. It’s still under construction, so if you notice anything particularly wacky, we’d appreciate a heads up. We did move the 2016 content over and linked from his site to here, but let’s get down to what this is really about.
We do currently have a survey open looking for suggestions for 2017. But more important even than that:
We’re looking for help in several areas!
Non Profit Status – We’re currently looking for help from people with experience starting nonprofit organizations. I’ve started the bylaws and constitution, but anyone that’s willing to help draft and finalize these would be welcome – even if you’re not interested or able to stay on the board long term.
Board Positions – We are looking for (at least) 3 other board members: preferably trans-identified, but not required, to fill open board positions if you are interested!
- Treasurer – Primary responsibilities would include managing the organizations incoming and outgoing finances and producing annual expected operating budgets.
- Fundraising – In addition to brainstorming ideas to secure private funding, the fundraising head would be responsible for identifying and reaching out to potential corporate sponsors for larger monetary or physical donations.
- Promotion & Marketing – Primary responsibilities would include managing social media accounts (Facebook, Word Press) and getting word out about our programs and fundraising efforts.
Logo Design – We need a logo! Help us design a sick logo and we’ll make sure you get a mention and a link to your site/artwork. We’d really prefer to feature a trans or queer artist, but we’re open to all possibilities. If you’re local to us, we’ll totally take you out for a beer, coffee, tea or other legal vice of your choice as a thank you!
If you’re interested in helping with anything, shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or head over and apply for a board position!
Donations are still open – we’d love to go into the holiday season with a little more in the bank. Head over to our Donate page for more on that.
