The majority of our members were in favour of keeping membership to Rainbow Families free - something the new committee has guaranteed to do. To keep going as a community group there are basic costs we need to cover and we no longer have any reserves. Over half of the respondents in our members' survey were in favour of us asking for voluntary donations as a way to raise funds.
We are therefore asking for donations from our members through April and May and we hope to raise enough to keep us going without worry for at least the next 12 months. These are the only two months of the year we will be fundraising this way. This will give us enough breathing space to also raise funds through other routes for the rest of the year.
We are asking members to donate whatever they can to the group. If we raise:
- £800 we will cover our basic costs for another year including our required insurance.
- £1000 we will also be able to enter Brighton Pride this year
- £1500 we will be able to host more free and subsidised events for our families
