Funding Needs

The most pressing funding need is for operations. We are are a one-staff person operation and in order to grow our programs we need to build our infrastructure to support new initiatives. The second and third most pressing funding needs are for programs and resources respectively. We need to grow the programming we offer our members, and others in the field, as well as increase the resources we offer.
