TransFolk of WA provides a support network for Trans and Non Binary people in Western Australia. Costs are high due to the necessity of a secure website for our members, support group sessions, training and insurance. Your help is appreciated x

UPDATE:     PERKS ADDED ! 

To try and raise some money myself for the group I personally (Nick) had a heap of merchandise made for Fairday but unfortunatley due to the weather we didn't sell as much as we hoped and many people didn't show up to pay for and collect thier pre-orders... So we have decided to off load them as perks. Last time we did the "perks" thing it ended up costing more than the donation to post it, and consequently 3 people (interstate) never actually got thier perks. This time I have allowed enough $ to cover the cost of postage and the cut that FundRazr take. Many sizes available but limited numbers so get in quick!

If you wish to donate an item instead we will gift it to a volunteer and email you a personalised thank you and a brief outline about the member you have supported.

**********************

TransFolk of WA is not just online chat rooms. We are an entire community of people who band together and work towards a better future for all LGBTI people in WA.

The last couple years have been amazing and all the hard work is finally paying off. WA's transgender community is coming together and working as a team. Originally known as Transmen of WA we have recently rebranded as TFolk and spent the last year training staff and mentors, creating procedures and preparing for a suprise launch. Which at the time of editing this description is set to be done in 2 days time. From here we will be working towards getting a gender centre happening.

This campaign's aim is to "fund" the organisation so the bar has been set higher with no end date this time. As the costs continue to rise I can no longer afford to pre-pay all the expenses that go along with the Pride Festival, Support groups, Website, etc. This fundraising campaign provides a 'virtual wallet' that we all can chip into. Parents have tried to give me money several times as thanks for helping so this creates an avenue to be able to accept those kind of donations too.

It actually does cost a lot of money to run this show. It also adds up in many ways, ie website fees, phone, internet, domain registration, postage for the binder exchange, parking, printing, fees & donations to other organisations for the use of their facitites when holding our support groups.. the list goes on. From time to time we do funnel some money into members who are homeless. This is never cash and is used discretely on a case to case basis.

Any financial assistance you can provide would be really appreciated. The website fees and Google Suite fees hurt us but it is a resource that makes the admins work a whole lot easier and less time consuming, it is a must have.

The money we raise goes directly to a PayPal account (registered in my name with Transmen of WA's email address)You can help us avoid paying fees on your hard earned dollars by using our PayPal directly: paypal.me/TmenWA (unfortunatley this can't be changed to TFolkWA so we will wait until our ABN paperwork is completed and set up a new PayPal then)

Thanks for reading,

Nick Lawrence
