Where Does My Money Go?
When you donate to Long Island Women in Tech, you can be assured that 100% of the proceeds will go to Women in our local community to support their careers in technology. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity organization which makes your donation tax-deductible.
Keep the Lights On
We use the first set of funds to “keep the lights on” and pay for our online services like website hosting, Meetup group, podcast services, accounting software, external marketing fees, and our Zoom account.
Sometimes we’ll use donations to pay for LIWiT swag! Of course, those goodies go right back to our members.
Back to our Members
We support our members with:
- Resume Writing Services
- Career Coaching Services
- Speaker Fees
- Event/Location Fees
- Yearly Student Scholarship
- Donations of Tech Event Tickets
- Donations of Tech Equipment
- Donations of clothing and services to prep for interviews
All of the service providers we do business with are fully vetted. Basically, we make sure they care about Women in Tech too.
None of our Officers take a salary or payment for services. We are all volunteers.
