The huge outpouring of support in our August fundraising campaign was many things—unexpected, amazing, gratifying—and humbling. We are glad to have earned your trust and respect. We intend to treat your generosity well, and keep expanding our services and our reach. We are redoubling our efforts to create a steady pipeline of startups advancing toward customer sales and funding success.
Our goal was $20,000. We raised $20,950 including matching money, more than tripling the amount in our last campaign, and we set a new record for the number of people who donated. In this time of pandemic, when so many people are uncertain of their finances, it is particularly astonishing to see this kind of response. We are so grateful. We also receive support from sponsors, grants and contracts, all of which have been shrinking with the uncertainties of the shutdown. That’s why the boost from donations is so critical right now.
