WHAT YOUR CONTRIBUTION DOES
Your contribution is used specifically for "providing educational, strategic and financial assistance to grassroots organizations committed to advocacy for and crucial support to LGBTQ individuals and communities" living in smaller cities and rural communities beyond America's major metropolitan areas.
It is in these areas that we see the greatest need for assistance. Not only do LGBTQ Americans still suffer the indignities and fear arising from the kind of social intolerance of the past, but, increasingly many state legislatures promote legislation designed to inhibit or even reverse LGBTQ civil rights acheivements of the past fifty years.
All LGBTQ Americans have the right to lead happy and healthy out lives. With financial support from our partners and donors like you, we are able to reach out across the country to fulfill our mission of tolerance, hope and equality for all LGBTQ Americans.
