Hello! This is Dr. Brielle Stark, one of the co-founders of FOQUSAphasia (www.foqusaphasia.com). FOQUSAphasia was created in mid 2019, and since then, has grown to including over 80 international members, has produced three published manuscripts, and has hosted over 11 free workshops/lectures. Point being: we're growing, and we need a platform that will aid in that growth! We're moving from SquareSpace to Wix, to enable us to have a fully functioning membership platform where members can interact on forums, and where we have the ability to create member-only resources (should we want to!). On Wix, we'll need a Premium membership. The most economical way to do this is to opt in for a 3 year subscription ($17.00 x 36 months), for a total of $612.00 (plus tax). We also want to host approximately 6-8 invited lectures over the course of 2021 and 2022. We'd love to be able to offer speakers a small honorarium, so we have budgeted for $100 per speaker ($800 total). Paying speakers an honorarium is something we feel strongly about and haven't yet been able to do.
Itemized budget for 2021-2022:
- $620 for Wix (will pay for 3 years!) <-- achieved!
- $880 for invited speakers (enables us to pay at least 8 speakers!)
Thank you for considering donating! We'll put the names of all donors (unless you choose to be anonymous) on our FOQUSAphasia website.
Any extra money (not budgeted above) will roll into our 2022-2023 budget, which we estimate will largely comprise honorariums!
