As explained in our last newsletter, Prostasia faces the risk that I will have to resign as Executive Director due to personal financial pressures that have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Although our generous individual donors and subscribers are covering our regular operating costs, our base of supporters is still too small to pay even a part time salary that would enable me to continue working for Prostasia full time. I had originally committed to do this until the end of 2018 in the expectation that the philanthropic community and corporate donors would step up… but unfortunately they have failed to do so.
So I am calling upon your help to keep the organization running smoothly. The main things that we need volunteers for right now are:
- Social media. We need a team of volunteers to contribute tweets to our social media feeds, along with a manager to review and post them. (For now I can remain as the manager.)
- Blogging. We aim to publish at least two new articles on our blog every month. We need volunteers to write these articles or to find others who can do so. Token payment is possible.
- Podcasting. Ideally, we would like to find an individual who can take over our podcast/vodcast series completely. Failing that, we need someone who can find guests for it.
- Newsletter. Every month we put out a newsletter. We need someone who can source or contribute articles and reviews. For now, I can continue to edit and mail the newsletter out.
If you are interested in volunteering, please contact me and I’ll introduce you to the rest of our volunteer team, and get you started with what you need to know.
