Diversity Richmond is a catalyst, a voice, a place and a resource for Richmond's LGBTQ+ community. Donate Now

Fundraising and donations

Diversity Richmond would not exist without the incredible support of our LGBTQ+ community, friends, families and allies.

We raise money through key efforts such as Diversity Thrift and Diversity Bingo!, among other tactics. While we love cash donations, there aren’t many organizations that allow you to bring an old piece of furniture, clothing and knick knacks, donate them and get a tax write off, and then parlay that into the kind of community support we offer. We recently gave over $33,000 in Partners in Progress grants, for instance.

We’ve been recognized and received support from other Foundations for which we are grateful. Fundraising events, either sponsored by us or others are held periodically. Every little bit helps, both us and the community.

We are revamping our Membership Program, and hope to get lots of community participation from that effort in the coming weeks. So go clean out a closet, make a drop off at Diversity Thrift, and shop around while you’re there. We try to make it easy for everyone to help.

If you like the work we’re doing for our community, support it!
