Be an Angel (or a Devil)! Please donate now to support the 10th Annual Saints & Sinners Festival.
To ensure a fantastic 2013 Festival, we need the help of literary-minded Festival goers and cultural patrons like yourself. As arts funding disappears, and more organizations vie for such limited funding, we count on the generosity of those who wish to support LGBT writers’ stake in the American cultural landscape.
We have set a $10,000 fundraising goal between now and December 31 to ensure that this year’s Festival is a blowout celebration. Membership packages are available in a range of prices, starting at just $25. For our 10th Anniversary bash, we are even offering a special “$10 for the 10th” membership option!
Best of all, anyone who becomes a member at any level OR participates in the “$10 for the 10th” promotion before the end of 2012 will be automatically entered to win a 4-night-stay for the 10th Festival at our host hotel, the Hotel Monteleone. A membership and a $10 for the 10th gets you two entries to drawing. A portion of each donation is tax-deductible.
As many of you already know, Saints and Sinners is currently completely organized by unpaid volunteers. It is truly a labor of love as all of the work is done without monetary compensation. Our fundraising goal would allow us to hire a much-needed, part-time office assistant to help with the pre-conference administrative work, and pay for general operating expenses to produce the events, venue rental, printing, advertising, etc. Additionally, donations would also go towards providing registration scholarships for individuals who otherwise might not be able to afford to register for the event.
Note: Ordering online will provide you with a printable receipt that can be used as a temporary membership card. You can expect your Saints & Sinners Membership Card, a letter of purchase for your taxes and more information to be received by mail within the next 2-3 weeks. Your membership contribution is non-refundable, and your Saints & Sinners membership is valid for one year from the date of purchase.
