Good morning Southern Arizona!
I am excited to announce that we have started to send emergency funds to our trans community members! We had 25 applicants requesting a total of $5,500. Sooo many thank yous to everyone who donated to help make this happen!
@Applicants: Please check your emails/texts for messages from me (AJ) asking about the details of your PayPal/Venmo/CashApp usernames so SAGA can send you your requested funds. Also, there are a couple folx who forgot to specify their phone number/email - no worries! If you think this is you, please send me an email via firstname.lastname@example.org
We would like to extend a HUGE THANKS to an anonymous Donor who gifted us $5,000! Because of this generous Donor, we were able to start sending out emergency relief funds to all 25 original applicants sooner than we expected. Also because of this incredible Donor, we are able to open the application for our Trans COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund back up!
***Because we want to be able to stretch the assistance of the remaining Trans COVID-19 funds ($1,445) to more people, we will be lowering our max request amount to $150, meaning we will probably only be able to support around 10 more trans folx until we are able to raise more funds***
We will try our best to sustain this Trans COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund throughout this period of social isolation. That being said, we will continue to close and open our Trans COVID-19 Fund in waves.
