20 LGBTQIA+ Nonprofits to Support This Pride Month (and All Year Long!)
Happy Pride Month from Buffalo Exchange! We wouldn’t be who we are without the creative, savvy and always stylish LGBTQIA+ community members who sell, shop and work with us throughout the year. To shine a light on some of the incredible charitable organizations making a difference in the lives of LGBTQIA+ individuals and communities at-large, we’ve created a directory (pulled from past Tokens for Bags recipients!) of nonprofits doing amazing work around the country. If you’re looking for ways to show your support and give back to the LGBTQIA+ community, scroll through this handy guide and find an organization to donate to this June — and all year long!
Advocacy, Education & Justice
These LGBTQIA+ organizations are all about doing the hard work necessary to create an equitable, just and safe world for all gender expressions and sexual orientations, no matter what corner of the world you’re from!
Community & Housing Support
Everyone needs a helping hand every now and then, and these organizations work to provide LGBTQIA+ folks with shelter, housing resources and welcoming community spaces where they can create connections, forge strong friendships and develop chosen families to last a lifetime.
For many LGBTQIA+ people experiencing a traumatic event, seeking emergency assistance often isn’t as easy as dialing the local police station. These organizations are on the front-line for LGBTQIA+ people experiencing crises, ready to provide informed, comprehensive care in the face of adversity and all forms of violence.
Health & Wellness
These awesome orgs provide inclusive resources and services around health and wellness with an irreplaceable human touch, including offering gender affirming supplies like makeup and clothing, health clinics, HIV + STI screening and treatment and counseling.
The children are the future, and these youth and young-adult focused LGBTQIA+ organizations are providing them (and their families!) with the resources and support they need to grow into bright, resilient leaders of tomorrow.
