Your love and generosity helped Transgender Law Center win BIG on Give OUT Day!
It took a village of generous donors, enthusiastic fundraising volunteers, and community members like you passionately sharing our Give OUT Day page and cheering us on, to secure TLC’s 1st place spot on all THREE categories we competed for. It’s because of YOU we had 799 donors, the highest number of donors nationally, and took first place on the National Leaderboard for Large Organizations, Bay Area Leaderboard for Large Organizations, and the Equality Card Leaderboard. And it was not an easy climb to the top with our allies at Equality Federation matching our energy every step of the way. We congratulate them and the many other organizations, including several trans-led groups, that spurred each other on to a brilliant day of giving and support for our movement.
Altogether, with donations and matching gifts, our Give OUT Day contributors gave an incredible $43,684 and helped us win an additional $16,500 in prize grants. That is $60,184 total to meet the growing challenges facing the trans movement. We are grateful for our incredible volunteer fundraisers, including Brielle Darynn, Masen Davis, Shawn Demmons, Mark Huggins, Josephine Suen, Gretchen Lintner, Min Matson, Kristen Verrastro, Jacob Richards, Melanie Rowen, Alix Sabin, and Gwenyth Searer. An additional huge round of thanks to our amazing challenge donors the Simpson-Asprodites family, Steve, Susan and Caleb Thronson, Jason Franklin, Jacob Richards, Leslie Richards, Tamsyn Waterhouse, Min Matson, Kris Hayashi, Nancy Otto and anonymous donors.
A big thank you to Horizons Foundation, Arcus Foundation, Equality Card, the Harnisch Foundation, Clever Girls, The Strategy Lab, AAPIP, Click & Pledge, and anonymous donors for creating and sponsoring Give OUT Day and generating vital resources for the national LGBTQ movement.
Thank you for your deep commitment to the trans and gender non-conforming community and for sustaining and advancing TLC’s critical work!
