Join Our Team in Supporting Our Members This Give OUT Day

June 26, 2023

Give OUT Day is a month-long fundraising campaign culminating on June 28, the only national day of giving for the LGBTQ community. Give OUT Day is hosted by Horizons Foundation, the world's first LGBTQ community foundation.

After another brutal legislative session — over 559 anti-LGBTQ+ bills were introduced — we’re looking for joy where we can find it by honoring all we have accomplished together. We’re honored to be in this fight alongside our partners – and you – but know we must stop to find and celebrate joy during these challenging times. 

This year, more than ever, we must unite as a community to ensure that these anti-trans laws do not define our future. This year, our network of 46 state-based partners has worked tirelessly to defend and uphold LGBTQ+ rights and the rights of everyone. We have made tremendous strides in the journey to equality but cannot afford to let our guard down. We are a team of many, and this year, we’re asking you to join our team for equality. Donate today and share our campaign with friends, family, and social networks. Every dollar counts and will have a lasting impact on the lives of LGBTQ+ individuals nationwide. 

After you donate to Equality Federation, please consider matching that gift with a donation to your closest participating state partner and a BIPOC-focused organization:
