MBGLTACC Funding for CU GSA

As a Gender and Sexuality Alliance at a conservative Catholic university (Creighton University in Nebraska,) we recieve very little support from the institution. This includes limitations to our ability to be visible on campus, and no funding to attend relevant events or conferences such as the Midwestern Bisexual Lesbian Gay Transgender Ally College Conference (MBLGTACC).

In previous years, our organization has managed to scrape together funds to go to this conference, and it has been a significant and life-changing event for all attendees from our group. If you would like, there are testimonials at the bottom of this statement from our members about their previous experiences. Attending MBLGTACC has been important to each and every person that has gone, and continuing to attend is an aim of our organization every year.

This year, however, we are struggling (failing, even) to acquire the money we need. This GoFundMe has become necessary in order to acquire the money to pay for our hotel and gas money in order to attend MBLGTACC. Your smallest donation would have the biggest impact on the lives of our members. Please consider donating to our cause.

Testimonials

"Having moved around a lot in my life and having a very splintered sense of identity, MBLGTACC was the first and only place that I've ever felt that I could truly be my full self. It has given me a sense of hope that I will be able to find my place in this world at large. Until then, MBLGTACC will have to suffice for a place that I call home." -Alessandra, attendee 2014.

"I've been lucky enough to attend MBLGTACC twice before this year, and being a part of a nationwide community of college-aged LBGT*+ folks all working to educate themselves and others on social issues has impacted me in a huge way. This is my last chance to go to MBLGTACC, and understanding the profound way it has affected me means that it would be crushing to fail my organization by not being able to give others the same incredible experience I've gotten to have. Please consider supporting!" -Jamie M., attendee 2012, 2013
