Asking for help is a wonderful way to build community & engage in meaningful collaboration. In asking for help you also uplift others who want to show up for you.

Just a reminder that asking for help is a contribution

πŸ’¬ Community starts with conversation.

πŸ” About Us and What We Do With Your Information

Chelsea, Inna, and Ryan are at the other end of our contact form. Get to know us on our About page. Alas, we can’t usually move at the speed of emergencies, and sometimes we take a week or two off for self-care. We get lots of spam and sometimes miss your requests in the noise. If you don’t hear from us within a week, feel free to contact us again.

About your information:

  • Your information will be entered into our forms software (WPForms and WordPress).
  • A subset of that information will go to our CRM software (HubSpot).
  • A subset of that will go to our accounting software (QuickBooks Online) if you receive money from us.
  • This data retention is solely for legal compliance purposes. We will not sell or give your data to third parties. We will not use your information to market anything to you.
  • Your IP address will be used to geolocate your browsing session. Our software does not allow turning off IP address collection.
  • If you are concerned with us having your IP address, use a VPN.
  • If your IP address is outside the United States, we will ask you to confirm you are in the United States. We’ll take your word for it and never ask you to unmask your IP.
  • We collect as little as we can from you and do our best to keep it secure.
  • We use 1Password for Business to secure our accounts with long, randomly generated, unique passwords.
  • Your information will be reviewed by our directors: Ryan, Inna, and Chelsea.
  • Periodically, nonprofit lawyers and consultants will have access to some information in order to audit our processes for ethics and legality.
  • We delete your form submission and any documents you attach after determining whether to send you a grant or not. We consider personal information a toxic asset and don’t want to keep more of your data than we have to.
  • We will also delete your information from our systems upon request.
  • However, if you get a grant from us we do have to retain contact information about who we gave to and the amount given. We retain this contact information for 3 years as required by the Internal Revenue Service.
