TWU’s budget has grown to approximately $1.5 million since starting as an all-volunteer organization. Our administrative and fundraising costs are about 22%, and include a significant part of the expenses associated with the building we own, the Arlandria Community Center. Our funding comes from individual donors, foundation, local governments, and member dues.
What Does Your Donation Support?
The most valuable donations are unrestricted — they let us put your money toward the programs that need it the most. We use it to support our healthcare organizing, to help us win our campaign for equitable education in Alexandria City Public Schools, a revised taxi code in Arlington County and to implement restorative justice at local schools. It pays to keep the lights on, and for our staff salaries. You are also welcome to direct your donation toward a specific project or campaign (full descriptions are available on other pages of the website), and we’ll make sure it gets where it needs to.
