The Exiles San Francisco are creating community

patrons

$50
per month
The Exiles is the only 501(c)3 non-profit educational group for women/non-binary/genderqueer/gender variant/intersex people who have a positive, personal interest in BDSM in the San Francisco Bay Area and are 18 or over. The group provides educational events where women with all levels of experience have a safe place to meet, explore and share information about safety, play techniques and resources, and connect with the leather community. We host a monthly program on the third Friday of every month, a monthly munch on the first Wednesday of every month, a safety/introduction orientation every other month, and play parties too! Please check our website for specifics, and especially check out our past programs to see what we do.

We are comprised solely of volunteers – from the officers to the presenters. We are dedicated to keeping our programs and events financially and physically accessible to the members of our community. We count on membership dues, event income, and the generosity of patrons like you to keep us financially solvent. We have some additional fundraising activities like silent auctions, raffles, beverage busts, and more. However the cost of rental space for our events and meetings has increased by 225% in last two years, and we also have other expenses; storage (increased 300% in 5 years), special events, outreach, and basic operational expenses like our website and equipment.

In order for the organization to provide all these activities, we need to raise money to support our operations, to continue to provide a great space for our folks to meet, learn, and play. So we are asking for your assistance in keeping the organization alive and available for the women/non-binary/genderqueer/gender variant/intersex leather community. Every pledge here directly helps us to continue to provide educational programs and special events. Patrons at every level, will receive Exiles branded swag and other benefits such as free entry to local events.If you value the educational programs and special events that The Exiles provide for our demographic in SF and beyond, we need your pledge now. Support us at the level you can!

Thank you to all of our subscribers for your ongoing support! We truly couldn't do this without you!

Goals
$50 of $700 per month
At this level we would simply be meeting our current budget needs. That means the organization would be viable but could not add any extra events or programs. We would also be in danger of not meeting our budget if any rents or costs increase.
