We held our first annual Alternative Pedagogy Mini-Conference on May 2nd, and we couldn’t be happier with the results! We would like to thank all of our wonderful presenters and participants for sharing their thoughts on how to make philosophy and global thinking more accessible. Even though we wish we could have met in person, our virtual platform allowed us to capture the whole event – we hope that you enjoy 🙂
Hello All! We encourage you to check out our GoFundMe page for our upcoming “Giving Tuesday” event (Dec. 3rd). From now until then, we’ll be accepting donations to help fund our first library package donation to a Bethesda Project location. Thus far, we’ve only been able to afford our free philosophy course services at local shelters. We would love to be able to leave a physical reference to all of the themes we discuss! Library packages cost anywhere from $520 to $1,100, so we could use all of the help we can get. Here is a link to our “Giving Tuesday” campaign:
Any extra funds we collect will go towards maintaining our virtual office. We currently pay $100/month in rental fees.
And don’t forget, if it would be more meaningful for you to directly donate a book that we need to complete our package, please email Ms. Animal at email@example.com for more information!
2019 This Is Philly Philosophy Symposium
Hello All! The LCP Foundation is teaming up with the local Philadelphia Philosophy Meet-up Group to co-host a mini-conference celebrating Philly’s philosophy scene at the Good Karma Café on Pine Street, August 24th from 6 pm to 9pm! It will run like a traditional conference with paper presentations and discussion. But we are also opening up the platform to include alternative philosophical approaches, such as poetry, paintings, music, etc. Come join the fun!
First Open Board Meeting
What up, errrrrrrbody?! This past Saturday, June 29th, The Lawn Chair Philosophy Foundation held its first open board meeting! We met with our friends from the Philadelphia Philosophy Meet-Up Group. We’ve joined forces to plan for an upcoming conference, and we hope to work closely together so that this non profit properly represents the vibrant Philly philosophy scene. We hold our board meetings in a knights of the round table fashion – everyone has a say, no matter their official status in the group, and that say is important! Although, I will say . . . we’re a pretty oddball bunch. We’re more goofy than knightly . . . We had a great time while working hard, and we can’t wait to share with you the fruits of our labor! More to come!
Official Tax Exemption Status!
Howdy y’all! Wonderful news to share: the IRS has recognized our tax exemption status! Any donation you make to the LCP Foundation may now be deducted from your taxes! Please check out our current GoFundMe page. We’re behind on our office rent. Once we secure that money, we can move onto funding actual libraries and acquiring talent to help create courses to accompany our library packages!
