Dear NABITA Community,
NABITA is pleased to announce a partnership with SocialOffset.
In a statement this summer, we reinforced our pledge to serve the communities where we host our events. We are partnering with SocialOffset again to provide a social justice component to our 2023 Annual Conference in West Palm Beach, FL, from November 12-17. This creates a pathway for meaningful action that helps disrupt inequitable state law in Florida.
Conference attendees will have the opportunity to contribute to local organizations in West Palm Beach that make a difference in people’s lives and focus on the issues of racial justice and LGBTQ+ equality. NABITA worked closely with SocialOffset to select two vetted charities that work toward our equity goals to help balance the scale. Each cause was determined based on specific criteria, including that it must be local and spend at least 75% of all donations on services offered.
NABITA has covered 100% of the administrative costs to provide this service, allowing 100% of your donation to go directly to your selected charity and ensuring you avoid service charges. NABITA will also match all donations received up to $1,000.
All donations go directly to these selected charities:
- Compass Community Center
Compass Community Center has provided life-saving services to the residents of Palm Beach County and South Florida for 35 years. Their mission is to engage, empower, and enrich the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people and those impacted by HIV and AIDS.
- Side Project, Inc.
The mission of Side Project, Inc. is to promote social justice and social change by incubating and developing grassroots projects. They provide fiscal sponsorship and legal services to small nonprofits.
