PRIDE Annual Report 2020 - Page 26


The Mosaic Project of South Texas received several requests throughout the year to assist with activities , causes and events relevant to the LGBTQIA + community in the Coastal Bend . Most recently , a Texas A & M University-Corpus Christi ( TAMUCC ) professor Dr . Daniel Bartholomey sought participants for a research study he is conducting using photography to describe LGBTQIA + life in the Coastal Bend .
The MPST Board authorized donation of the remaining stock of 2019 PRIDE t-shirts and mini-rainbow flags to a TAMUCC student group for their National Coming Out Day event on October 11 .
The pridecorpuschristi . com website has been updated with photos and biographies of Board members . The Board is in the process of developing a social media policy to help direct content and messaging as well as manage social media feedback from the public .


The financial condition of the Mosaic Project of South Texas is stable thanks in most part to the success of the 2019 PRIDE program and community sponsorships . Last December , the Board agreed to move $ 10,000 in fund balances from checking to savings to have in case of emergencies . That balance continues to grow marginally through quarterly interest earned on the fund balance . The fund balance for the organization ’ s checking account remains stable as well because there were no major PRIDE events in 2020 . A few community sponsors stepped up and wrote checks for 2020 prior to cancellation of PRIDE events . The Board agreed to hold over those sponsorship commitments to 2021 events . The only major expenses this year were for the GOTV effort , which had a not to exceed budget of $ 4,000 . Financial support totaling $ 1,000 was received , as noted previously , so the Board ’ s total investment was reduced .
