Our work is generously supported in many ways by thousands of Vermonters and supporters all over the country and world. There are a number of ways you can donate to our work — each is as valuable to us as the others.
Lend Financial Support
There is no doubt about it, cash donations help us in a big way. Whether it’s sponsoring a queer youth for Camp Outright each summer or helping us keep our queer youth space lights on in Burlington, your donation of any size really adds up. Outright Vermont is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization under federal and state regulations — your donation is tax deductible.
- A donation of $50 will feed 20 queer and allied youth pizza at Friday Night Group, outfit an entire public school with safe zone cards, or fund our online hosting fees keeping us connected to youth all over the state.
- A donation of $100 will provide all the decorations for our annual queer youth prom, underwrite one public school training on anti-harassment or fund our phone bill for one month (a life line for many queer youth without internet access).
- A donation of $250 will fund, in part, our monthly queer youth space costs for our Burlington office, cover mileage costs for a month of education requests around the state or underwrite a partial scholarship for a queer youth’s attendance at Camp Outright.
Donate Talents and Time
Among our many different programs, events, and organizational projects, we are constantly seeking talented people to donate their time and skills. Are you a talented photographer? Amazing organizer? Tech savvy? We need you!
Our queer youth space is in constant need of a variety of goods including food, clothing, furniture and office supplies.
Food (always needed): Ramen noodles, granola bars, frozen meals, canned soup, canned fruits and vegetables, instant oatmeal, whole grain crackers, peanut butter and jelly, baked beans and microwavable rice packets — anything that your average, awesome youth might eat.
Clothing (always needed): Gently worn and seasonal clothing, shoes and fabulous dress-up accessories. All sizes and expressions welcomed!
