Give OUT Day is a month-long fundraising campaign culminating on June 30, the only national day of giving for the LGBTQ community. Last year Give OUT Day raised over $1.9 million for LGBTQ nonprofits in all 50 states, D.C., and Puerto Rico.
Diversity Richmond helps to sustain LGBTQ+ and LGBTQ-friendly community-based organizations and nonprofits in and around Richmond, VA. Through these relationships and our programs we act as a facilitator in the community, connecting LGBTQ+ community members with vital resources.
Diversity Richmond operates a retail store, Diversity Thrift, which is a foundational source of funding for our community programs. Donations of furniture, clothing, and household items help us to continue supporting and celebrating the local LGBTQ+ community. Simply put, we are a reflection of the community’s generosity and we couldn’t do what we do without you!
Here's how your monetary donation can help Diversity Richmond support the LGBTQ+ community:
$10 provides three pairs of shoes for LGBTQ+ community members in need
$25 provides six articles of clothing for community members in need
$100 covers the rental of our classroom for a local support or recovery group
$250 covers the cost of 3-days of emergency housing for a community member experiencing homelessness
$500 covers gas for our Diversity Thrift trucks to pick-up community donations for two weeks
$1,500 allows a nonprofit or community group to use our event hall for free
$5,000 funds a local LGBTQ+ organization or project seeking assistance through our annual grant program, Diversity Richmond Gives Back
Any amount you can give is greatly appreciated!
