PEP Fund 2018

$20 of $1,500 goal

Raised by 1 person in 7 months
Since 2011, Pennsylvania Equality Project, (formerly Marriage Equality for Pennsylvania LLC) has advocated for fair and equal protection under the law for all Pennsylvanians. We seek an end to discrimination in all public accommodations, and an end to the use of conversion therapy as just some of our overall goals. 

To achieve those goals, we are seeking $1,000, which is the cost of becoming a 501c3 organization.  With Legal Zoom our expenses are...

To that cost is an additional $400 from the IRS. We do not want to leave any funding to chance, so we are anticipating an extra $159 for the Registered Agent Service. Our board members cannot continue to run Pennsylvania Equality Project without additional revenue. 

Furthermore, we will soon need to renew our website license. Our annual expenses will be easier to maintain and meet yearly, if we become a fully-fledged non-profit. Your contribution, no matter how much, is appreciated.
We want to participate in events across Pennsylvania to continue to raise awareness. Your help is critically needed at this time.

We want to become a 501c3 this year. Once we are an official non-profit organization, we will be writing grants to open a Drop In Community Center in northwest Pennsylvania. Our goal is to offer services for LGBTQ people and allies from 14 to 80. Ideally, we want to provide a safe, welcoming environment that serves as a haven when life is stormy. We would provide homework help, resume writing, and other programs for youth and young adults. We would provide arts and crafts for older people. Additionally, we want to offer other services. Every donation at this point goes toward our 501c3 process, with excess funds going toward the Drop In Center. Thank you all!

All the money we raise with this fundraiser is going toward our 501c3 status. Our organization has several unpaid volunteers, and at this point, we want to remain completely small-donor based, and not a corporate driven organization. Thanks to your generous donations, we will achieve our goal before end of year.
