"Hatred toward a fundraiser that supports leadership development and social awareness for youth and adults alike. In a town that really needs leadership. Pretty dam negative."
But I do have some negativity, however, about their website design. I dislike the light grey text on the white background.
It appears that the website has interesting content that I would like to read. I'm one of the few people left who still loves text. 
But I don't understand how this is comfortable reading.
In my opinion, tiny fonts, low-contrast text, and page bloat make text-heavy websites hostile to readers.
And in my opinion, the Leadership Toledo Squarspace theme needs modified to increase the contrast of the text against the white background. A contrast ratio of less than 3:1 is rough.
The light grey text is hard to read, especially on an older monitor and on the phone with the too-small font size and with older eyes. Not everyone has 20/20 vision and brand new computer screens. 
I think that only one "simple" modification is needed: change the font color from #a3a3a3 to #222222, assuming that black on white is too harsh.

Same page but displayed with Safari Reader enabled.
Young web designers need to be aware that their parents read websites too.
If improving a website's readability can save one eyeball, then it's worth it.
Leave no retina strained.

I basically think design is like a cancer on the web anymore. You know what works? Craiglist, that's what works. I seriously want to punch a hipster every time I have to use an app [or a website] that used to work and has now been designed to death.
Typography may not seem like a crucial design element, but it is.
But if the web is relayed through text that’s difficult to read, it curtails that open access by excluding large swaths of people, such as the elderly, the visually impaired, or those retrieving websites through low-quality screens.
So why are designers resorting to lighter and lighter text [and tiny font sizes on phones]?
... when you design in perfect settings, with big, contrast-rich monitors, you blind yourself to users. To arbitrarily throw away contrast based on a fashion that “looks good on my perfect screen in my perfectly lit office” is abdicating designers’ responsibilities to the very people for whom they are designing.
Some useful advice exists in these pages:
Quit fucking around with grey text. Text contrast is not a bad thing. The print on your newspaper is not true black, nor is the text on your screen. These are limitations, not ideals. Stop making it worse.
