What we do
Plan and execute Left Up To US fundraising efforts in accord with the strict ethical guidelines in our bylaws.
In celebration of LUTU's one-year anniversary, we organized a benefit concert with four musical guests at Spider House Café and Ballroom, funding LUTU's operations for most of 2017.
We held a screening of the documentary film The Rag: Underground Newspaper, produced by Austin's own People’s History in Texas.
The film chronicled the life and times of Austin’s pioneering underground newspaper, The Rag. (Learn more about The Rag here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Rag)
This event raised money for our modern version of The Rag, the Left Up To US Newsletter, enabling us to publish 1000 copies of our first edition.
After the film we held a Q&A panel, featuring the LUTU Publications Organizer, Ellen Gregor, the LUTU Editing Coordinator, Kelly Besecke, and LUTU organizer Glenn Scott, who also worked on The Rag many years ago.
Raising funds to cover the cost of publishing the second edition of our print newsletter.
Planning LUTU Fest, a benefit we're organizing for this September
What we need help with
- We need people who will come to our Fundraising Committee meetings and help us brainstorm fundraising ideas, and plan the logistics for LUTU Fest and other future fundraising events
- We're looking for donations of goods and/or services to auction at future fundraisers
- We need performers for LUTU Fest
- If you can offer free space for a future fundraiser, that would be amazing!
