In honor of Pride, Born This Way Foundation pledged to give and match all funds raised in June to emerging LGBTQ+ organizations across the U.S. in partnership with CenterLink, an international network that strengthens, supports, and connects LGBTQ+ community-based organizations.
Through a community of individual donors like you, nonprofit organizations, foundations, and corporate partners, we are proud to report that we raised $248,479. With our match, that means we are giving $496,958 to 132 organizations working tirelessly to connect young people with needed care, affirmation, and accessible resources to support their wellness.
As members of our Born This Way Foundation community, you know Pride is a year-round effort so we kindly invite you to click here to learn more about these organizations and how you can get involved to support their work, including: LGBTQ S.A.V.E.S. in Fort Worth, TX, Salus Center in Lansing, MI, All Rainbow and Allied Youth, Inc. in Port Charlotte, Florida, among many others.
Thank you so much for every dollar you gave, every social media share you posted in support of this fundraiser, and every time you helped remind someone (including you!) that they are loved and needed in this world. We’re so grateful to build a kinder and braver world with you.
