Support the Project with a Year-end Donation
December 19, 2017
Our mission to document and honor LGBT place-based history in NYC continues, and it’s more essential than ever. We must put LGBT history—often invisible to the public at-large—on the map and document our cultural heritage before it’s too late.
Can we count on your ongoing help?
We’ve set ambitious goals for 2018, and we need your support to maintain our rigorous research, writing and publication schedule—that’s how we’re able to deliver on our fundamental purpose of public education. And 2018 is a critical year: this is our time to prepare for 2019 and the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising.
Your donation will be matched!
A generous donor has pledged to match every dollar contributed between now and the end of the year, up to $20,000. Give today, your tax-deductible donation will go twice as far.
There’s important work to be done: research for over 100 new historic site profiles for our website, photograph more buildings, advocate for more LGBT-related sites to receive formal recognition through National Register of Historic Places nominations, and educate the public through engaging programming.
Share your passion for LGBT history with five friends! To show our gratitude, donors contributing $1,000 or more will receive a complimentary private walking tour (up to 6 people) of LGBT historic sites. Share your commitment to the Project with all of your friends, family and colleagues by using the social share buttons below.
It’s up to us, together.
LGBT history is all of our history—it is American history. We hope our angel donor’s special year-end matching gift challenge will inspire you to give generously, knowing your contribution will be doubled. Please consider a charitable gift to the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project.
