You can make a difference

There is no such thing as a small gift to the Center. All gifts help the Center meet the needs of the diverse, unique populations that make up our cherished, local LGBTQ+ community.

Whether it is a donation today, a monthly contribution, attendance at a fundraiser, corporate sponsorship, or a legacy gift, every dollar matters and will be put to good use. Below are some creative ways you can make a difference in a better tomorrow for LGBTQ+ people.

Your donation can have an impact on your community today. You can make a big difference, no matter the size of your gift:

  • $25 supports an individual HIV/HCV testing and counseling session.
  • $100 provides one cultural competency and diversity training for any agency, workplace, or school seeking to create an affirming and compliant environment.
  • $500 allows 100 people free youth and adult support groups and access to service referrals.
  • $1250 provides housing, transportation, and living expenses for one of our transitional living program residents for one month.
  • $5000 allows the Center to take positions and organize the community around pending administrative and legislative initiatives throughout the year, as well as participate around the clock on task forces, committees, and coalitions.
  • $10000 sends 5 youth to a weeklong national leadership conference to learn and bring advocacy tactics back to Sacramento so that we can create a more diverse and equitable region.

You can also support us on Giving Tuesday in the winter and Big Day of Giving in the spring for our annual fundraising drives! You can also create a fundraiser or donate proceeds as an easy and fun way to support your Center.

The Center’s Pride is a tremendous group of Center supporters who demonstrate their ongoing belief and passion for our mission by making a monthly gift.

An easy process, just choose the amount, then lean back and smile knowing you make the lives of LGBTQ+ community members, young and old, better every day.

Join our Pride now and feel proud you are creating a safe and welcoming space for everyone.

Corporate sponsors invest in the Center through sponsorship to energize Center events and programs while increasing the visibility of their business and its support of the LGBTQ+ community.

Many sponsors find our opportunities not only mutually beneficial, but imperative to their brand loyalty.

The Lambda Legacy Circle is full of generous Center donors who plan on leaving the Center a legacy gift. Legacy giving, also known as planned or deferred giving, is when an individual plans now to make a charitable gift from their estate after their passing.

Your legacy gift will be treasured forever. You may think your estate is not big enough to give; please know that any and all gifts given from the heart are generous and truly appreciated.

Did you know you can give to your community center by giving through your workplace?  Or that workplace giving programs operate year-round through payroll deductions?  Or that you can double the impact of your gift through an employer matching gift? Many employers also match contributions of volunteer time.

Give through your workplace and double the impact of your gift or volunteer time.
