Giving Opportunities

We rely on the support of our community and corporate partners.

  • An end-of-year appeal offers a way for individuals to show their support.
  • All our events provide opportunities for companies to become an event sponsor at various levels.
  • All events include a way for individuals to donate either at the event or by becoming part of the host committees prior to the events.
  • Individual and corporate sponsorships for campers provides a fun-filled week for youth to be with their peers in a safe setting.
  • Annual corporate sponsorships provide the funding needed for programming throughout the year.

Volunteer Opportunities

Business and individual volunteers are what make our events so successful! All our events, as well as planned mailings throughout the year, offer opportunities for individuals and businesses to make a difference. Our event planning committees are fun and inclusive. If you or your team would like to help at any of the events, please let us know! If you’re looking for a team building project that makes a difference in the LGBTQ+ community – come on over!
