To say this past year was a challenging one would be an understatement. Fundraising is down 25%, and funds from our educational programs (namely the SSCT) are down 33%. To put it in more concrete terms - we are $25,000 behind where we were pre-pandemic.
And yet, thanks to your support and funds from the CARES Act, we’ve accomplished quite a bit this year. Since March of 2020, your support has helped to:
- Provide 958 therapy sessions to 96 individuals through teletherapy
- Partner with 34 educators to offer 32 virtual workshops on a pay-what-you-can basis to hundreds of adults across the country
- Start a new sliding-scale Sex Therapy Group Supervision program, making professional development more accessible to aspiring sex therapists of varying economic backgrounds
- Launch a brand new bi-weekly podcast, Virgin Territory, where host and CSPH Board Member, Vima Manfredo, explores a new sexuality-related topic with a special guest.
You helped us achieve all of this during the most challenging year we have faced as an organization. Now, imagine what we could achieve together during a ‘good’ year.
We have big dreams for The CSPH. We shared some of them through our Choose Your Own Adventure: A visit to The CSPH at the end of last year. But it is incredibly hard to build towards your dreams when you aren’t sure if you will be able to make payroll in three months. In order to build towards the future we want, we need you to ensure that we have a solid foundation today.
Most of our revenue for the year comes in between September and May, and right now we have enough to meet our operating expenses through July. Between Friday, March 19th and Sunday, March 28th, we need to raise $15,000 to try to bridge the gap so we can make it to the Fall.
Will you help us build towards our dream?
