Northern Nevada HOPES Invites the Community to Support Access to
LGBTQ+ Care by Participating in Give OUT Day
Northern Nevada HOPES is joining LGBTQ+ organizations across the country by participating in Give OUT Day to raise funds to support LGBTQ+ healthcare and support services.
Give OUT Day is a month-long fundraising campaign culminating on June 30, the only national day of giving for the LGBTQ+ community. Since 2013, Give OUT Day has helped fund critical services for thousands of LGBTQ+ individuals.
DoughBoys Donuts is helping kick-off the month-long celebration starting June 1, by selling Give OUT Day stickers. All sticker proceeds will be donated to HOPES Give OUT Day campaign at the end of June.
“We’re inviting the community to play an instrumental role in connecting LGBTQ+ individuals to the support and care they deserve,” said Todd Felts EdD, APR, HOPES Board Member, Associate Professor, University of Nevada, Reno. “Everyone can participate and give real hope by setting up an online fundraiser, donating, joining Give OUT Day events and helping us spread the word.”
HOPES’ goal is to raise $25,000 to support its LGBGQ+ health and wellness services including: primary care, HIV care and prevention, Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and Gender Affirmation Surgery evaluations, support services like housing, medication assistance, case management and more. Thanks to the generosity of Barry and Vivian Frank, each donation will be matched up to $25,000. Every dollar raised will be doubled and have twice the impact.
