Houston Polyamorous Organization

It all began with the simple idea of having a float to represent the polyamorous community at the Houston PRIDE  parade.  Doing this, however, required being a part of either a business, charitable organization, or non-profit.  None of which had been created yet for our community.  When we began looking at the diverse talents of our members, we realized that an educational non-profit would not only be doable, but would create a more connected and beneficial structure within the community.

What is required?
As an educational nonprofit, we would be required to publish regular educational material that benefits the community.  

What are we planning? 
An educational website where people from the community can post:
-articles and opinion pieces
These wil cover topics including but not limited to:
-family legal issues

We will also be able to use the HPO name to host events that give back to the community and to be a representative at PRIDE and other lgbt, lifestyle and family events.  The organization will be used to help spread awareness and increase the visibility of polyamory as a valid, healthy and natural relationship and family model. 

The funds donated here will be spent to fund:
-Houston Polyamory Organization website and ongoing maintenance cost
-Fees associated with applying for 501c3 nonprofit status in the state of Texas
-Registration fees associated with participating in Houston PRIDE as a nonprofit organization
-Supplies and services needed to host a fundraiser to raise funds for the poly PRIDE float and HPO nonprofit.

Who am I?  
My name is Camille and I am the current president and one of five board members of HPO.  We have used much of the donations collected here to take HPO to Houston Pride 2016, which was a resounding success!  We have plans to use future funds to continue building our nonprofit and educational resources, as well as participating again next year in Pride 2017!  We'd like to thank the community for their support and participation in this endeavor!
