There are three giving days coming up in the next few weeks. We’re excited to welcome new donors, and collaborate with supporters and volunteers to ensure that they’re a success!
Up first – Idaho Gives Day on May 1st! Take a look at the message from Steve below that outlines why it’s important for Idaho residents to support Pride Foundation!
“Did you know that Pride Foundation is the only funder in the region with an exclusive focus on advancing full equality for LGBTQ people? It’s true. For nearly 30 years, we have inspired giving from thousands of donors and volunteers, and leveraged their generosity to invest in LGBTQ leaders, organizations, and students.
As a result, our powerful regional movement has fought discrimination and inequality, making it safer and more supportive for LGBTQ people and their families.
I’m guessing this matters to you and that’s why you’re a supporter of Pride Foundation. What’s more, I hope it’s why you’ll become a first-time donor at this critical time.
Please consider making a credit card donation on May 1 during the Idaho Gives 24-hour charitable online event!
Whether it be supporting Add the Words Idaho efforts and local non-discrimination ordinances like the one now in danger of repeal in Pocatello, advocating for homeless LGBTQ youth, expanding access to healthcare for transgender people, or fighting for marriage equality, you can be sure that your dollar will be used to effect lasting change in the LGBTQ community.
For us, no challenge is too great, no community too small. By joining together, we can transform our individual acts of courage into a unified movement for change.
If LGBTQ equality is one of your top causes, please help us make continued steady progress by becoming a Pride Foundation donor. We hope you’ll join us.”
