Description

WHAT IS GIVE OUT DAY? Give OUT Day is the ONLY national day of giving for the LGBTQ community โ€“ a 24-hour online fundraising event that unites donors and nonprofit organizations from across the country to raise critically needed funds. The technology platform is provided for free and hundreds of nonprofits have leveraged it to attract new donors, motivate their boards and other supporters, and raise their visibility. Since its inception in 2013, over 23,000 individual donors have contributed more than $3 million and supported more than 500 different organizations in every part of the country. These funds have translated directly into services, advocacy, and programs that help tens of thousands of LGBTQ people.

Participating nonprofits also receive training, marketing support, and a chance to win bonus prize money by participating in event leaderboards.

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. For decades and decades, from bar fundraisers and penny jars to gala fundraisers and major gifts, individual donors have funded progress at every step. Give OUT Day follows in and builds on this great tradition. Throughout this day-long event, thousands of people make gifts to support a vast array of LGBTQ nonprofits across the country, ranging from the arts to social services agencies, from advocacy groups to sports leagues, from community centers to health care nonprofits. 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.
