Tuesday, November 27, is Giving Tuesday! Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving, celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the US). This day is the perfect chance to give back and donate to a worthy cause.
So why choose Garden State Equality?
Garden State Equality is the largest LGBT rights organization in New Jersey, and one of the most successful LGBT groups in the country. We’ve pushed tirelessly for a wide range of protections and policy changes that continue to improve the lives of nearly 500,000 New Jerseyans and their families. But that’s not all. Our hard-won legislative victories and cutting-edge programs are a model for other statewide and grassroots LGBT rights groups across the country. So your support impacts the lives of members of your community and furthers the movement nationwide. This is why your contribution is so important to us!
How can I donate?
There are plenty of ways to donate. On Giving Tuesday, we will be receiving donations through our Facebook Page. We'll be live on Facebook from 6:00pm to 8:00pm where our members can learn about our programs, hear stories about the impact of our work, and donate to help our mission.
You can also give a donation through our website or set up a monthly donation for our Educational Fund, Action Fund, or both! We also encourage donors to check with their employers to see if they offer a company match!
What's our goal?
This year, we want to raise $10,000. Funds raised from Giving Tuesday will support the innovative work GSE is doing in the areas of policy, education, and health. Every day, our team is busy advocating for the LGBT community in our state and offering programs that can serve as models for other states, agencies, and organizations.
For every donor who gives a gift of $50 or more, we will send an exclusive metallic Garden State Equality sticker as a token of our gratitude! (Be sure to include mailing address and contact information when donating so we can mail you your exclusive sticker!)
