MEGA Family Project faces dire financial straits

MEGA Family Project Executive Director Kathy KellyMEGA Family Project, the seven-year old nonprofit organization that caters to LGBT families and prospective parents, is in financial trouble. Kathy Kelly, the organization’s executive director, sent an email to supporters July 29 announcing the need to scale back services and work toward creating a leaner and more sustainable organization.

“We’re very low on funds and our expenses exceed what we’re bringing in,” Kelly said in an interview Aug. 2. “We’re struggling but at the same time we’ve been trying to regroup to make the organization smaller and leaner. We’re basically starting over. ”

The message emailed to MEGA supporters said the group “does not have enough money to meet its expenses.”
