Over the past two years, we have explored several models to strengthen our organisational structure and capacity to be strategic and responsive, from both the programmatic and financial perspectives. We secured several grants to improve our technical infrastructure and core programs. We developed long-lasting partnerships with minority-serving organisations, libraries, and open science communities. We also piloted a donation campaign - we raised $15,445!
All of these efforts are in alignment with our strategic plan for 2020-2025, and today I am excited to announce an initiative that will diversify the organisation’s revenue stream while helping us attract like-minded organisations that want to be a part of the amazing and valuable work we are doing.
