This year’s Gala comes at a critical time for the Center, a time when federal funding for many of our services, particularly those that serve the most vulnerable in our community, are threatened. That’s why the success of this year’s Gala, and your attendance, is more important than ever.
No organization in the world serves more LGBT people, or offers a wider range of LGBT-specific services, than the Center. Just last year we welcomed more than half a million visits from youth and adults who represent the full diversity of our community; people of all races, religions, gender identities, sexual orientations, and ages. They come to us for medical care, for counseling, for a place to live while experiencing homelessness, and so much more.
Donor support of the Center, including through events like the Anniversary Gala Vanguard Awards, ensures that the organization's programs and services are available for the most vulnerable members of the community. Helping to sustain the Center's extremely efficient infrastructure provides the care that so many people rely upon.
Thank you for your support!
