Help us take this movement further
Who Are We?
Support Our Science is a grassroots organization actively advocating for increased pay to graduate students and postdoctoral scholars in Canada. In the last year, SOS organizers have accomplished a lot. This includes meeting with decision-makers, gathering media attention, and organizing a national walkout in response to Budget 2023. We know that our efforts have brought much-needed attention to the issue of stagnant federal funding for graduate students and postdoctoral scholars.
Support Our Science has achieved so much without any funding. But our organization has reached a point where we now need some funding to continue to operate and strengthen our advocacy. We are a small (but mighty) organization and we need YOUR help to push our mission forward!
We want you to know where your money is going:
Website domain: a yearly expense to keep this website running with the same URL
Business email: this is linked to the website and allows us to send emails and official newsletters via software like Moosend
Premium Slack: we use Slack for organizing, and a subscription means we don't lose any messages or information
Newsletters: Moosend is an affordable alternative to Mail Chimp. We'll purchase a "credit bundle" so we can send emails (e.g., one newsletter to 10k subscribers = 340k emails left)
Travel reimbursement: this allows our Executive Director to travel to meeting with decision makers
