What is Give OUT Day?
Give OUT Day is the ONLY national day of giving for the LGBTQ community – a 24-hour online fundraising event that unites donors and nonprofit organizations from across the community 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 45,000 individual donors have contributed nearly $5 million and supported more than 600 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.
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 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, advocacy groups to sports leagues, community centers to health.
