Support your favorite LGBTQ organization on April 19!
Give OUT Day is the ONLY national day of giving for the LGBTQ community – a 24-hour online fundraising event that unites donors and nonprofit organizations from across the country to raise critically needed funds. The technology platform is provided for free and hundreds of nonprofits have leveraged it to attract new donors, motivate their boards and other supporters, and raise their visibility.
Since its inception in 2013, over 33,000 individual donors have contributed more than $4 million and supported more than 600 different organizations in every part of the country. These funds have translated directly into services, advocacy, and programs that help tens of thousands of LGBTQ people.
Happy 45th anniversary, PFLAG!
When PFLAG founder Jeanne Manford marched with her gay son, Morty, in New York City’s Christopher Street Liberation Day March in 1972 – and held the first peer support meeting less than a year later – she could scarcely have imagined how much larger the organization would become, the number of lives PFLAG would touch, or the many ways – or to the many people across the country and around the world – support would be offered.
This year, PFLAG celebrates its 45 years of working to save lives, strengthen families, and change hearts, minds, and laws. We have never wavered in our commitment to provide support to families and allies who are in need, through peer-to-peer meetings, online outreach, and telephone hotlines. Our family and ally voice is integral to advancing equality.
