The Lulu Fund Launch
$1,776 of $5,000 goal
Raised by 20 people in 36 months
To serve our mission:
* We have an essay written by our founding board appearing that appeared in Salon on March 22.
* We released data on March 22 that will further demonstrate the need for our work.
* We are giving $7,000 in awards at our March 31 gala (below).
* We have drafted a five year plan -- available for review on our website .
We need to pay expenses related to incorporation and garnering non-profit status, pay for an expansion of our website, reimburse out-of-pocket to our volunteers for expenses related to our gala, pay for our formation meeting expenses, and a host of other nitpicky start-up costs. Please support us if you can.
(As with our gala income, funds will be transferred to March Media/which is handling the expenses for The Lulu Fund now. The donations will be audited by the board at the start of the non-profit to make sure all were spent on behalf of and/or transferred to The Lulu Fund.)
