Year End Giving

Dear Members:

Thanks to you… This Year…

We’ve supported and honored the partners and spouses of America’s LGBT+ service members and veterans – our nation’s modern military families. Through your help we raised and donated over $1,100 to the American Military Partner Association (AMPA).

We’ve supported LIKEME® Lighthouse-KC in their mission to provide on-site counseling LGBT+ resource referrals, safe meeting & event space for over 20 community organizations & groups, and many educational and social events to give the LGBT+ community a sense of belonging. We’ve done so by raising $1,000 just this year and over $13,000 since 2014.

We’ve supported FosterAdopt Connect in their unending mission to serve the most vulnerable in our community, abused and neglected children. This unique organization was created by foster and adoptive families for foster and adoptive families, and operates on the core value that it is in the context of the family that children learn, grow, thrive and heal. We know that the $1,000 we raised was put to good use.

We’ve support our ever expanding arts communities through donations of the Mid American Freedom Band and Heartland Men’s Chorus.

You also stood with us and others to raise over $1,100 for the OneOrlando Fund after the horrific Pulse Club massacre in Orlando.

Every day, your support makes our grants possible.

Today, we’re launching our 2016 Year-End Campaign. This coming year, we expect there to be greater needs than ever before. We must lend our voice and our dollars to help those who advocate and serve our friends, loved ones, and neighbors. $4,000 would insure suicide prevention lines are answered by trained, caring, loving professions. $4,000 would help provide college scholarships to graduating LGBT+ high school seniors. $4,000 would provide new backpacks and school supplies to over 300 foster children.

That’s why our goal is to raise $4,000 by December 31, 2016.

Would you be willing to make a special year-end donation of $50, $100 or whatever you can afford to help us meet our goal?

We simply can’t do it without you. Your support will make a real, lasting impact in the lives of those who are still in need.

Thank you for your continued support and friendship.
