It is vital that we have people and funding to help us realize the full potential of this effort. We have hired a superstar full-time staffer (Director of Programming and Outreach) who just graduated college and a part-time consultant (Director of Operations and Sustainability) who has over 10 years of experience in the nonprofit industry. We are raising money for a year of operations as we ramp up and identify more large-scale funding over the next months and next year. Our minimal expenses include those related to salaries, outreach efforts, website maintenance and marketing materials. In order to continue expanding Locus, we are asking you for a tax-deductible donation toward our cause. Every contribution makes a difference!
