Why donate to us

Every day we provide over 500 hours of lifesaving support and services. We need your help to provide these essential services to our communities and be here for every single LGBT person who needs us. Demand for our support is growing, and we’re seeing more people in crisis than ever before.

We have a very simple motto - we’re here if you need us. And that applies to everyone in our beautifully diverse communities. If you’re young, we’re here for you; if you’re older, we’re here for you; if you’re a person of colour, we’re here for you; if you’re a man, a woman, or non-binary, we’re here for you; lesbian, gay, bi, trans - however you describe yourself - we’re here for you. If you need help, if you’re struggling, if you need a friendly face or reassuring voice, we are there for you if you need us. We are all family - and at LGBT Foundation, everyone is welcome.

And when we can be here, we know we can make a difference.
