We are kicking off our fundraising campaign for 2013-2014 between now and February 14th, 2014 and want to solicit your contribution. Our goal is to raise $100,000, which represents about 1.5X our annual budgeted expenses, to be used as described in our most recent newsletter (Letter from the President, December 2013). 

Our top priorities are: 1) Build a human capital membership database, 2) Develop the LIFE -LebNet platform partnership, 3) Implement a mentorship program for a select number of CEOs of lebanese startups. 

Our expenses are summarized as follows:

- Part-Time Executive Director
- Operating expenses:
   - Travel expenses to partners / beneficiary companies
   - Legal and tax preparation fees
   - PR and sponsored events
   - Website upgrade and maintenance
   - Social media presence
   - Administrative expenses
   - Student subsidies to attend our social events

No membership fees will be assessed through 2014. We are offering the following sponsorship levels, based on discretionary annual tax-deductible donations (EIN 27-3472825):
Silver:          Up to $499
Gold:           $500 to $4,999
