WOW! Your generosity today has inspired others! We just received another generous $10,000 match from John Ealy, business owner of Harley Gray! Now your donations for Give OUT Day will go three times as far.

We’ve already raised over $5,000 today, but we need YOUR help to further fund our LGBTQ youth programs. Your tax-deductible donation will enable us to provide leadership building activities for over 2,000 LGBTQ youth this year including:

  • Funding the materials and transportation for LGBTQ youth who wish to attend the 2019 Youth Leadership Academy at the San Diego History Center
  • Hosting monthly lunchtime trainings for LGBTQ Youth in our Lunch Bunch group
  • Sponsoring a trip to Sacramento for LGBTQ Youth with our Education and Advocacy staff so our LGBTQ youth can speak with our elected officials

Thanks to John Ealy and the Burgess Family your donation will be tripled – so every $10 becomes $30 for our LGBTQ youth!
