About the Campaign

Over the last 11 years, Ace Week has grown into the community's most celebrated annual event. Every year, Ace Week brings the our whole community together to show off our ace pride, revel in our accomplishments, and push for meaningful change in the world.

Behind the scenes, the Ace Week team has been growing as well! This year, more than a dozen volunteers spent hundreds of hours to bring Ace Week to the community. Of course, that's on top of the countless community members who themselves spend untold hours preparing their own efforts!

Our organization has huge plans for growing Ace Week even further, extending our reach, and increasing our impact.

(Completed) $1,000 Goal: Sustain Ace Week

Between website hosting, design software, and all our other necessities, we need to raise around $1000 to sustain our current efforts until next October. Raising $1000 will allow us to focus on our core work without having to worry about keeping the (metaphorical) lights on!

$3,500 Goal: Expand Mainstream Media Coverage

Each year, 2-3 major publications and around a dozen smaller outlets publish stories about Ace Week. This is one of the main ways people outside of the community find out about us: for example, tens of thousands of people read a single story about asexuality in CNN last year! That's a whole lot of people who learned a little more about asexuality (and possibly themselves).

$2500 would grant us the resources to proactively contact journalists, editors, and publications in August and September. In addition, we'd be able to assemble a group of contributors that reflect the diversity of our community, bringing better representation to media efforts.

With this project, the number of nuanced stories about asexuality in major publications would increase remarkably, and ace awareness would grow right along with that. This time-intensive effort, if properly resourced, would pay dividends for our community for years to come.

$6,000 Goal: Boost our Social Media Efforts

Our community grew up on the internet, and social media plays a huge role in how we connect with one another. Ace Week has always been a platform to celebrate the work done in our community and those efforts have helped countless creators reach more people with the amazing content they create!

Right now, our social media efforts are primarily focused on the month of October, which means we're missing out on 11 months of the year! This $2500 would allow us to significantly increase our social media efforts, allowing us to reach more people, boost more community efforts, and make a larger impact for our community.

$10,000 Goal: Bring on a Volunteer Coordinator for 6 months

Ace Week has always been volunteer driven, and volunteers will continue to play a key role in Ace Week for years to come. In the last few years, as Ace Week has grown exponentially, it's taken more and more work to coordinate our growing volunteer team.

This $4000, combined with our existing resources, would allow us to hire a part time volunteer coordinator for 6 months of the year. Not only would this free up our Executive Director to take on more impactful and innovative work, this would enable our volunteer team to grow larger and more effective than it's ever been before!

$15,000 Goal: Extend the Volunteer Coordinator's Position Year Round

While 6 months is a lot of time to prepare for Ace Week, imagine what we could accomplish with a volunteer team building and growing year round!

Bringing on a year-round volunteer coordinator would be a key step to further expanding Ace Week, and that would directly translate to greater impact for our community.
