One of the biggest challenges GSAs report in sustaining their club is really a simple one - food and supplies. Most of our GSAs meet during the lunch hour, so being able to offer pizza for students attending is a huge incentive for both new and existing members. Supplies for activities and outings are also key. Currently, almost all of our GSAs have no source of funding for their clubs other than GSA Hawaii's adoption program. For just $500 per year, anyone can adopt one of the GSAs in GSA Hawaii's network. 100% of the money is for the GSA to spend on food, supplies and outings for their club. GSA Hawaii manages the money simply to make sure all the funds are going to benefit the students, and GSA Hawaii takes no administrative cut of the donations.
