Support our Philly LGBTQIA+ Community

You may not realize it, but the vast majority of your league registrations go directly back to the Philadelphia LGBTQIA+ community.

Given that our spring season is on pause, this seriously hinders many organizations that rely on donations like ours to provide vital services to the community. As a result, we've compiled a list of donation opportunities provided directly from our nonprofit partners. If you're able to support in any way, every little bit helps!
 
Mazzoni Center
Mazzoni Center is a multi-service, community-based, health and social service provider aiming to advance the health and well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) communities. The mission is to provide quality comprehensive health and wellness services in an LGBTQ-focused environment, while preserving the dignity and improving the quality of life of the individuals we serve. As a non-profit agency, Mazzoni Center is a critical lifeline to the Philadelphia region's LGBTQ community and its premier center for health and wellness. They are a dynamic, comprehensive health and wellness center responsive to diverse community health needs and we designed and implemented a full continuum of medical, behavioral health, wellness and support services tailored to the needs of LGBTQ people everywhere.

William Way 
The William Way LGBT Community Center is a 501-c-3 non-profit that operates its programs 365 days a year, normally at its location in Center City Philadelphia at 1315 Spruce Street.   During the time of the closure of the building, we continue to operate our programs remotely (using Zoom conferences), as well as providing food and supplies to seniors through our elder programs at John C. Anderson Apartments and through our Mornings Out Program.
 
One key function of the Center is renting space to community groups.  We bring in $8,000 in income each month from these rentals.  We have canceled all rentals for the foreseeable future due to the health emergency. Thus we can expect to lose $24,000 in the next quarter alone. Our earned income through rentals and leases has been one of the key pillars of our annual budget.  We request your support at this time to assist with the replacement of those funds.
 
Please consider making a donation to the William Way LGBT Community Center. Here's how your donation can help:
 
1.     $25 will help us continue to provide healthy and nutritious food to seniors
2.     $50 Provides us with technology access so we can build online community groups
3.     $100 Helps us produce 1 QueeringtheQuarentine episode
4.     $500 We have continued to keep all of our staff employed. Your donation will assist in providing staff benefits during this health crisis.
 
Philly AIDS Thrift
While the stores are closed, a great way to support this organization is by buying books online through their queerbooks website. When a purchase is made on queerbooks.com a part of that sale goes towards funding our mission: helping people living with HIV/AIDS.  
 
AIDS Law Project
Every year, we field about 2,000 requests for HIV-related legal services. The majority of these requests are from low-income people living with HIV, many of which are in the LGBTQ community.  The AIDS Law Project relies on your donations to continue to provide free legal services.

Philadelphia Gay Men's Chorus (PGMC)
On March 11, PGMC canceled all in-person rehearsals for the foreseeable future. As a result, PGMC has also postponed its two Spring concerts: @QueerZ: Songs for a New Generation scheduled for March 28, and Cirque Du SoGay: Straight out of Vegas scheduled for May 8-9. Postponing those performances has resulted in PGMC incurring some financial losses.
The help makes up for the financial losses and cash-flow challenges that PGMC is facing right now, we invite you, if you can, to consider a tax-deductible donation to PGMC's COVID-19 Relief Fundraising Campaign. Click HERE (https://secure.givelively.org/donate/philadelphia-gay-mens-chorus-incorporated/help-pgmc-during-covid-19) to make a special tax-deductible donation to PGMC right now. Your support will make a difference and enable us to 'keep the lights on', and continue our mission during this pandemic, and even more strongly once this has ended.
