It was a big success. Thank you!
Huge thanks to the 80+ people who donated through Give OUT Day May 9! We raised over $3,000 in donations + a $3,000 bonus from Horizons Foundation for having the second highest number of individual donors for “small” Bay Area lgbt non-profits (annual budgets under $500k, and our budget is WAY under that!). We’re thrilled! And it was very close. We got 2nd place by a margin of ONE donor! So every single donation really mattered.
We received many wonderful, encouraging comments, too, including this dedication from an anonymous donor that really touched us: “This donation is in honor of my beloved cousin whom I lost to AIDS many years ago. He would’ve loved your show… ”
If you missed Give OUT Day, of course you can send us comments or donate anytime on our donation page.
Rather give of your time and skills? Wonderful! There are many ways you can help bring queer voices to the world every week, including ways in which you could get on-air recognition for yourself or to build your business. Check out the professional service, volunteer, intern and other options on our We Need Help! page.
