Our top needs:
- Funding: Unrestricted - LLACE needs unrestricted funding for any and all programs, and organizationally is wary of accepting restricted funding sources and only chooses to do so on a case-by-case basis only when funding restrictions do not conflict with our organizational values. Unrestricted funds are spent on facilities and archival costs, purchases for the lending library, processing donations for the archive, and holding public events that serve the dual urposes of education and building community.
- Funding: Other - LLACE needs unrestricted funding for any and all programs, and organizationally is wary of accepting restricted funding sources and only chooses to do so on a case-by-case basis only when funding restrictions do not conflict with our organizational values. However, some restricted funds will be sought after and/or accepted, pending analysis of how well the funding restrictions overlap our organizational values.
- Space: Office or Other - LLACE could very much use a benevolent property-owning donor who will give us free and/or well-below-market rent for additional archival and/or office space.
- Technology - LLACE could very much use donated recent-vintage computing equipment, preferably of the Apple/iOS type.
- Funding: Program - LLACE could use well curated restricted funding for our Queer Crafternoon program, which would allow the program to expand as well as purchase desperately needed art supplies to supplement the worn down art supplies donated by patrons.
