10 LGBTQ+ Organizations You Can Donate to Right Now
Pride Month is finally here, and with it comes a celebration of love, acceptance, and individual expression. It's also a time to uplift and support those in the queer community — although we should already be doing that every single day of the year. There are a handful of amazing ways to get involved and give back, and one is by donating to charities and organizations that serve the queer community. Whether you identify as a queer person or as a passionate ally, June is the perfect time to give your time, money, and/or resources to groups that need it. And by learning more about these organizations during Pride, you can then continue to support them year-round.
If you're looking for LGBTQ+ organizations to donate to, we've got you covered with some amazing charities and groups. One thing we recommend is checking out how the organizations could best use your help before you get started, since some charities might prefer financial support while others might just want a helping hand. This month and every month, show your love for those around you and in your community when you donate what you can. Keep reading to see 10 LGBTQ+ organizations you can to donate to now. Happy Pride!
