The month of June is widely celebrated as Pride Month in many parts of the world. That month was chosen to commemorate the Stonewall riots, which occurred at the end of June 1969, and as a result, many events are held to recognize the impact of people in the LGBTQ community have had in the world.
To celebrate Pride Month 2021, as well as the 10th anniversary of the LGBTQ Center last year, we invite our alumni to make a gift to the LGBTQ Center Discretionary Fund. This fund is used to support the mission and programs of the LGBTQ Center. Such programs include, but are not limited to:
Growing Lavender Graduation celebration
Training for Pride Advocates (student mentors who help with training)
Need-based grants to support students experiencing housing or food insecurities
Thank you in advance for your support of this very important cause. We look forward to meeting and exceeding our goal this year!
