Developing a community center, hosting educational events, & coordinating our annual festival & LGBT history month event take a lot of effort, time, & materials. While our volunteers provide the time & effort, we very much appreciate donations from the community to help us with the costs of materials, training, overhead, & more. The more that the community can provide without solicitation, the more time that our volunteers can spend on our educational work.
Our wishlist includes many of the items that we need on an ongoing basis as well as some one-off items as well (these are typically technology-related). If we need a limited quantity of an item we’ve specified it on the wishlist. You can see the wishlist below.
In addition to material items, we are always seeking monetary sponsorships & pursuing grant opportunities. Having cash to spend gives our Board the opportunity to prioritize & strategically plan our purchases. It also gives us flexibility if our needs change.
Amazon Smile is a great way to support Spencer Pride and it costs you NOTHING. To register, go to smile.amazon.com, log-in with your Amazon account, and choose “Spencer Pride Inc.” by scrolling over the “Supporting” drop-down. After registering with Amazon Smile, a portion of your purchase will be donated to Spencer Pride Inc. each time that you shop. You just need to be sure to start your Amazon shopping at smile.amazon.com.
You may also support us by linking your Kroger Plus Card to us. Again, this is a program that costs you nothing. Visit www.kroger.com/communityrewards and select Spencer Pride Inc. as your community organization. You’ll still add up your points like usual, but Kroger will take a portion of what you spend and donate it to Spencer Pride each time you shop at Kroger. Your community organization will need to be renewed annually.
This list is not comprehensive. If you have materials that you think we might be interested in, please contact us at info@SpencerPride.org and let us know.
By default, the items listed are nice-to-haves. This means that, although it would otherwise bring us cost/time/effort savings, without a donation or sponsorship we likely would not purchase it. Must-haves are also listed and are shown in bold. A must-have is an item that we need in order to keep our activities going. Regardless of donation or sponsorship, we will end up purchasing the item simply because we cannot do business without it.
