The CCF Rewind

Wow, we can’t believe it’s already July. (Summer, please slow down!) We hope that you are finding time to get some rest and relaxation during these slower work months. 

This week, Nicole Hall details out an amazing account of how Autostraddle, a community and digital publication by and for queer women, made it through a pandemic during a time when so many online publications have shut down. The way they did it kinda went against a lot of “conventional” wisdom. Like, they opened their financial books and really were super transparent with their donors and in their communication throughout all of their fundraisers — and we’re not used to such transparency, so it’s so cool to read about how successful it was when they did this.

Please read Nicole’s awesome essay:


How Autostraddle went from the edge of closure toward a robust (and successful!) community-centric donor model, during a pandemic!
