How Your Donations Are Being Used

Updated July 2021
Thank you for all who have donated with a sincere concern to make the world a better place. Here is a basic breakdown of where the resources are going.
How are donations being used?
Our team has built a multimedia outreach for anti-racism education and training. First, to support our writing and other work on the net, we are using funds for software. This includes but is not limited to: Hootsuite (social media management), Grammarly (for clear and concise writing), a WordPress professional account for our website (complete with email addresses, an ad-free site, advanced storage, web design tools, and other necessary features), video editing software, and an infrastructure management platform such as Pantheon. Hardware and computer equipment will be obtained and upgraded, as needed. Other money will be used for a logo and copyright permissions.
We also support other organizations. To date, we have given financial support to organizations including (but not limited to):

The Idaho Black History Museum

Idaho Suicide Prevention Coalition, Facebook Fundraiser by Virginia Treat.

A scholarship to Anti-racism Training

Baltimore Collegiate School for Boys

Legal Defense Fund for Maria Boutte

Feeding the Homeless in the Park, initiative by Shantel Reitz

A Community Outreach by Leo Hunsaker

The anti-racism work of Leta Harris Neustaedter

Culture for Change Foundation

The Equity Project by Miss Idaho Ayriss Paige Torres

Refugee family moving from discriminating Idaho, a fundraiser organized by Pascal Rudahindwa

Scholarships for students at Boise State University. Funds are awarded to students whose work and service activities directly impact the Black community. The scholarship donations are accounted for through this memorial fund in the name of my mother, the late Dr. Dorothy Strickland of Rutgers University.

Future initiatives include: In-person events will include, for example: A viewing of “I am not your Negro” at a local community center, near you, followed by a Q & A with Michael Strickland and (pick a Black leader from your area). We will also do an Anti-Racism dinner and discussion series (at a Black-owned restaurant, whenever possible) near you.
Thank you for caring. Let’s all get together and increase the peace and promote justice.
