YouthPride’s Dec. 31 deadline to raise $40,000 to remain open passed Saturday, but both how much money was donated and whether the LGBT youth agency will close are still unknown.
"We don't have a final count on what's been raised. If the numbers are not on target we will move ahead with closing," said YouthPride Executive Director Terence McPhaul in an interview today.
McPhaul said he has a meeting scheduled Wednesday and two meetings on Thursday with prospective donors. After those meetings he said he would know more about how much the agency will have raised. He said the meetings were with individual donors.
