Why We’re Fundraising
As many of you know, LoganSquarist has been a labor of love; a passion that has evolved over the past two years. With the help of an amazing LoganSquarist Ambassadors Team, LoganSquarist has grown into a daily website featuring unique articles and hosting regular monthly Neighbor Meetups.
Now that we’re a great team, it’s time for LoganSquarist to go to the next level. At our spring fundraiser, we’re hoping to get community support to pay for website hosting fees, business fees and to help us become an official organization. Money collected will go to supporting these efforts. With your help, we’ll be able to pay for our annual expenses and help us do more throughout the neighborhood.
