Giving “out” – Are we doing enough?
Less than 5 percent of LGBT people give directly to LGBT causes. Why is that? In the midst of another tech boom, why do Bay Area non-profits, gay and straight, still struggle? How might they tap into the “new young money”? How much can social media help? Give OUT Day, a new national experiment in online giving for LGBT causes, debuts May 9. Join host Eric Jansen and his guests, Jodi Schwartz of LYRIC, a non-profit serving queer and questioning youth in San Francisco for more than 20 years; Roger Doughty of the Horizons Foundation, the Bay Area’s LGBT foundation; and Noris Chavarría of Bolder Giving, co-creator of Give OUT Day, to hear about these issues and how you can get involved. (Broadcast live Thursday, May 2)
We encourage you to give to Out in the Bay during Give Out Day, running 24 hours from 9pm Pacific Time Wednesday, May 8, to 8:59pm Pacific Time Thursday, May 9, on Out in the Bay’s Give Out Day page.
