National Give OUT Day on April 19 to Support the LGBT Community
Thu, Apr 19th
What is Give OUT Day?
Give OUT Day on Thursday, April 19th 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. These funds have translated directly into services, advocacy, and programs that help tens of thousands of LGBTQ people. The Growing Together Initiative Fund (GTI) has raised more than $40,000 for the San Luis Obispo County LGBT community during the past five years.
Why is Give OUT Day important?
LGBTQ nonprofits power our movement for equality and justice and are critical to making sure that LGBTQ people have access to the support and services that they need. Monetary donations are the most direct way to help a nonprofit make an impact: they allow nonprofits to allocate funds where they are most needed.
GTI is fortunate to have the support of David Elson and United Staffing Associates who have provided matchiong donation challenges the past three years. This year, David and his team are offering to match donations, up to $7,500! When you donate to GTI on Thursday, April 19th, your donation will have DOUBLE the impact on our local community.
