We've been thrilled with what we've been able to do with AlterConf thus far - we're not only providing opportunities for marginalized people, but we're compensating them for their work. So often marginalized people are asked to do unpaid or underpaid labor, don't have access to the same sorts of funding that their more privileged counterparts do, and on top of that are already living on a more limited income.
To that end, we've partnered with Model View Culture to launch Fund Club. Fund Club sends a new organization or project to your inbox every month to which you'll donate $100. Your donation is made directly to the organization, which insures they pay minimal fees and keeps overhead of the project low.
We'll be announcing the first Fund Club round at noon PST today, June 15th. Register now at joinfundclub.com and fund important work in tech.
