The Leather Archives & Museum (LA&M) published its 2016 operating budget today. The budget reflects the institution's educational and preservation priorities and commitment to efficiency in spending. The LA&M continues to keep overhead and fundraising expenses to a minimum through the use of volunteers and responsible fiscal oversight.
The LA&M anticipates a 2016 surplus (funding in excess of expenditures) of approximately $15,000 related to one time 25th anniversary year events and fundraisers.
The Leather Archives continues to be primarily funded through the generous support of leatherfolk, sex positive funding organizations including International Mr. Leather, Inc. and community grant organizations.
