Sponsor Operational Expenses

The majority of U.S. nonprofits, including LSSN, rely heavily on government funding to provide much-needed safety net services. A recent survey of nonprofits dependent on government funding shows that it is about 65 percent of the total revenue, which is considered a dangerous percentage. We try to diversify our revenue sources to continue providing uninterrupted services to our community. We rely on the generosity of people like yourself while providing vital social services.

Just like any other business entity, we pay, for instance, energy, gas, water, building maintenance and security, licensing, multiple insurance packages, and other costs. Please join us and fund our operational expenses. The small team of LSSN supports our community by providing services over 2 million dollars each year, of which 302,000 (about 15%) are operational expenses. For example, each year we spend over $13,000 in energy costs. Our food pantry’s refrigerators and coolers, our nutrition kitchen appliances, and the rest of the programs do consume a lot of energy. Or, for example, we spend over $18,000 to ensure LSSN is has the necessary insurance packages to operate.
