Those of us who have had the opportunity to participate in an Inside-Out class don’t need to be told why the program is valuable. The experience has played a role in transforming how we think and interact with the world, whether that means redirecting the occasional train of thought or inspiring grand ambitions to change our country’s justice system. Unsurprisingly, a growing number of educators and students across the world are eager to participate in such a program. The season of giving is upon us, and Inside-Out needs our generosity. As the program continues to expand, nationally and internationally, our parent organization simply does not have the resources to keep up. Without significant financial help in the near future, Inside-Out will need to cut back. The Inside-Out Center currently has only enough resources to continue operating for the next couple of months. This center runs the national organization, trains new instructors, and supports Inside-Out programs across the country. Right now, Inside-Out has a $25,000 matching grant, but it is nowhere near reaching that goal. Even small donations will help push toward the financial sustainability of the program.
There are many ways you can help. Consider asking a friend or family member to donate to Inside-Out on your behalf in lieu of even just one holiday present. Or, donate in the name of a loved one as your gift to them. At a time of year when we emphasize love, generosity, and gratitude, you can use this as an opportunity to share the impact that Inside-Out has had on you.
Wishing you peace this holiday season,
Inside Out Alumna, UO
