Friends of the Latino and Latina Roundtable
We hope you are all doing well and staying healthy. Please consider supporting the Latino and Latina Roundtable on this Giving Tuesday. This is a global campaign to assist nonprofits during the COVID-19 pandemic. As you probably know, because of the coronavirus crisis, our organization has postponed our annual fundraiser until September 25 and because of that, we have been directly impacted. Our organization has historically been a volunteer organization that has relied on this one fundraiser to fund our efforts, which include advocacy, community events, and scholarships for local students. More recently, our board has moved to develop a strategic plan to ensure the sustainability of our organization on a long-term basis. As part of that plan, we have established an office, hired a director, and are looking at other means of support to fund our efforts. It is in this context that we ask you to donate to the Latino and Latina Roundtable as part of #GivingTuesdayNow – May 5th – a day that has been designated a day of giving to local nonprofit organizations’
We understand that times might be difficult and many might not be able to make a financial contribution. If you cannot donate today, we understand, however please repost or share with your networks. If you have a birthday coming up, please ask your friends to make a gift in your honor. So far we are at 10% of our goal of $1,500.00.
We cannot do what we do without your support. Our work and advocacy continues, and it will long after this period is over, thanks to you!
With much appreciation and gratitude,
Lina Mina, Director and Jose Calderon, President of the board, and the LRT Board
