We will be dissolving the SustainableScoop, effective immediately. Closure is a difficult and emotional decision. Over the past year, we yielded great results in pursuing the SustainableScoop’s mission—to engage more youth in media through the lens of sustainability. Our young recruits created programming that informed and connected the community of Arlington, Virginia. However, the costs associated with running a media organization—including the necessary software, hardware, technical support, insurance, and labor—proved to be insurmountable challenges to the long-term viability of the organization.
We are grateful there are other organizations that exist to adequately fulfill the desired needs of the community. Our legacy lives on with Heff Munson of Arlington Independent Media’s Arlington Weekly News, who will be taking over our YouTube channel. Beginning the wind-down operation, we want to acknowledge thanks to our contributors and explain our plan moving forward:
· The SustainableScoop’s Board of Directors voted on January 27, 2022, to officially dissolve the organization.
· Our dissolution plan includes shutting down all organizational accounts and sites.
· The SustainableScoop’s Board of Directors voted to transfer its remaining assets to Arlington Independent Media, another non-profit /tax-exempt organization (www.arlingtonmedia.org)
· Miriam Gennari, President, will act as the spokesperson for SustainableScoop should you need to reach out during the wind-down process. She can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org (or at 703-309-1600) until such time as the dissolution papers are filed with the state and filing the final annual report (Form 990) with the IRS, is completed.
Again, our board thanks the community, employees, volunteers, donors and other stakeholders for their support. We hope our donors, sponsors, guest, and vendors will consider shifting their future support to Public Broadcasting too.
