And that’s it for the SLF’s Founding Sponsor Kickstarter, the clock has run out! Thanks so much to everyone who contributed — we now have 71 sponsors generating $236 / month for the SLF, which guarantees our Diversity Grants indefinitely, and gets us started on a few hours a month of paid staffing. (I will be a volunteer for the indefinite future, but it will be SO NICE to be able to pay Chris to deal with some of the paperwork.)
Going forward, the plan is to get all the sponsors thanked (Chris, you’ll do this today), send them their sponsor gifts by the end of the year and list their names on our website (also Chris), and then gear up for 2018. Looking forward!
Thanks and congratulations! to everyone who helped promote the sponsor period fundraiser, and remember, you can join us at any time, for as little as $1 / month. And if anyone would like to make a tax-deductible one-time gift to the SLF at any point, we can accept those through PayPal.
I’m also happy to talk with you about larger gifts, such as those sponsoring a new grant, perhaps in memory of someone, or for a cause you believe in — just drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. The SLF is a 501(c)3 non-profit.
