All Out does not accept financial contributions from corporations or governments – this makes us accountable to our members.
Donations go a long way because we use technology to work globally with very low overhead. We just need our website, basic equipment and a small, hard-working and awesome staff. Sometimes All Out raises money to directly support an urgent need of one of our partner organizations or to pay for specific expenses that help our campaigning partners such as campaign advertising, legal costs, or security. Other times we raise money for All Out itself so we can continue to support our partners and run global campaigns.
Although our funding comes primarily from our members, All Out has also been generously supported by the following foundations:
Please note that in 2015, All Out received $75,000 from Lush (a privately owned UK cosmetics company) as part of a global fundraising campaign to support grassroots LGBTQ groups around the world.
Approximately 85% of funds donated to All Out go directly into our campaigning work. The other 15% goes to important organizational needs like management, fundraising, legal advice, accounting support, and infrastructure – all of which are vital to keep us running.
While All Out is a global organization with staff and members across the world, we are currently incorporated in the state of New York, USA. Under New York State law, All Out must conduct an annual independent audit of our finances. Our audits are conducted by Manger and Associate CPAs P.C.
