2014 Holiday Appeal
to Our Supporters
New Alternatives is a grassroots, 99% volunteer organization that operates on a skeletal budget of less than $135,000 per year, without any federal aid. We rely on the efforts of a single full-time staff member and over 300 volunteers. Our funding sources are entirely small private grants, and the contributions of individuals like you; people who care about homeless LGBT youth. This year, one of our grants was unexpectedly reduced, leaving us with a year-end short-fall of $20,000.
We added new services at New Alternatives this year, including on-site HIV/STD testing provided by our partner Project Stay, and an on-site health insurance enroller to ensure that all of our youth have access to healthcare.
I know you get a lot of appeals this time of year from many worthy organizations, but keep in mind that when you give to New Alternatives, you are directly funding services for homeless LGBT youth and young adults – not overpaid administrators or hefty overhead costs.
