The Out Accountability Project started as an idea ten months ago.

Over this time, many LGBTQ+ organizations and advocates generously contributed their time, expertise, and skills to planning and shaping our goal to be the place where parents, caregivers, allies and educators gather in support of LGBTQ+ students. The most sophisticated piece of the plan is the School Accountability Index – a system that grades schools on their learning environments. This work requires significant investments in research, development of a thorough and just method for scoring schools, and website development.

An additional investment into exploring the tax-exempt structure of The Project involves securing legal expertise. Because of this, gifts supporting our launch are not tax-deductible at this time. We are examining multiple ways to achieve tax-exempt status, whether it is through a partnership or securing 501c3 status. In the meantime, your generous support will help us start the complicated research and analysis for the School Accountability Index.

Founding Supporters will be acknowledged on this website and in other digital materials.

With gratitude,
Melissa
