Slought and the Creative Resilience Collective announced a mutual aid fundraiser in solidarity with the movement for Black lives and racial justice on June 10, 2020 that collectively raised over $14,797.

The drive ran from June 10-24, 2020 and matched up to $7,000 in donations made to the seven Black-led organizations. These seven organizations were chosen for their efforts to provide direct aid and life sustaining services to Black trans folks, youth, and movement organizers.

Thank you to all who participated in the fundraiser. We received over 85 donations totaling $7797.75 and honored all donations (up to our $7,000 commitment) by matching receipts submitted to a publicly accessible form. Donations were matched 1:1 based on the receipt and order they were submitted.

An anonymized public spreadsheet for all donations matched is available for accountability. In addition to the fundraiser, $600 has been set aside to provide unrestricted $100 honoraria to six young Black Philly-based artists, to support existing work and the production of a set of printed posters for them to sell.
