TAKE ACTION NOW
Dear community and friends,
Thanks to your financial support we have this wonderful, safe and supportive space in Bakersfield. Based on the community feedback and reviews, the Center is truly a space to be proud of.
We strongly believe is that gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people of all ages deserve to be happy and celebrate who they are, and to live full and rewarding lives as productive members of society. The Center strives to empower individuals in achieving these goals. In this mission, you play a vital role. The Center needs $24,000 - $30,000 annually for operating expenses. Please help the Center and the local LGBTQ community to continue to thrive.
This year, the Center is expanding its programs and services, including an anti-bullying resources center for local LGBTQ students, youths and their families. We are expanding our referral network by establishing alliances and working relations with other community organizations and government agencies. We also plan to host a number of community building events and activities for LGBTQ people of all ages. Please feel free to drop in and enjoy this beautiful and welcoming space.
To succeed, we are counting on your support. Please make a one time donation or become a sustaining member by joining the Rainbow Donors Club. Thanks to your donation, the Center and the local LGBT community will continue to thrive.
The Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, so your donations are tax deductible. We will be happy to issue receipts for your donations if needed.
If you have any questions, please contact the Center.
