LLF: New website and new challenge for you

The Lambda Literary Foundation has a new website design and a new challenge.

LLF is the biggest and best queer lit organisation in the world. It runs the Lambda Literary Awards, and the Emerging Voices writers retreat/workshop (which I taught last year), it champions queer literature in many forms. We need those queer voices because books save lives, and queer books save queer lives.

If ever you've been inclined to donate money to LLF, now's the time:

We have incredible news! Three Bay Area donors have offered the opportunity to match the $25,000 they are extending as a challenge grant to the Lambda Literary Foundation for LLF’s fall fundraiser and membership drive. Through the month of November 2011, Jan Zivic (pledging $10,000), Chuck Forester (pledging $10,000) and Al Baum (pledging $5,000) are challenging you to match their offer. New memberships at the $25 level or higher, as well as any additional donations by current LLF members, will be matched dollar-for-dollar to help raise an unprecedented $50,000 for LLF!
[...]
Give during LLF’s $25,000 challenge grant and membership drive and your dollars will go twice as far to champion lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans literature.
Please give generously. Whether you can afford $25, $100 or $1000, you will see your contribution doubled during the challenge grant! Help us to continue our highly respected programs, expand our capacity to serve the entire LGBT literary community, and increase the visibility of our books and writers.
We are deeply grateful to Jan Zivic, Chuck Forester and Al Baum for their generosity. Help us meet their $25,000 challenge by making a donation today.
We sincerely thank you for your support!

Tony Valenzuela
Executive Director

If you give money now, it will be doubled. Please donate--by PayPay, by credit card, by cheque. It's all good.

  2. Thanks so much for the heads-up! It's rare that I have extra money, but this month I do, so I donated :)
