Give OUT Day - Thursday, April 20, 2017
Will you help us Fill the rainbow in 2017?
Give OUT Day is a 24-hour online fundraising event that raises critically needed funds for nonprofit organizations that serve the LGBTQ+ populations across the US. It is the ONLY national day of giving for the LGBTQ+ community and it will occur April 20, 2017!
Side by Side raised over $6,000 in 2016 through Give OUT Day. These funds went toward maintaining their commitment to providing supportive communities for Virginia's LGBTQ+ youth to define themselves. This year our goal again is to raise $6,000. All funds raised will be used to support youth in crisis!
You can help us continue to sustain these critical services here’s how:
1. Make a donation to Side by Side on Give OUT Day (4/20/2017) of $10 or more. All unique donations of $10 or more qualify Side by Side to win additional monetary prizes through Give OUT Day. You can join the Facebook Event to be reminded to make your donation online. Worried you might forget to donate on 4/20/2017 you can make your donation now and schedule it to occur on 4/20/2017.
4.Take the 10 for $10 Challenge!
