Supporting 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. Each season, after factoring in operational costs needed to run our leagues, we set aside the remaining registration fees to be donated back to the Philadelphia LGBTQIA+ community. Teams that come in first and second place each season (and in larger leagues in each division) select one of our non-profit partners to donate registration fees to which are then awarded to non-profits as a lumpsum donation at the end of the calendar year. 

Since 2014, the Stonewall Sports-Philadelphia community has donated over $350,000 into the Philadelphia LGBTQIA+ community. Read on below to meet some of the organizations we have supported over the years. 
 
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.
