20 LGBTQIA+ Non-profits 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 non-profits 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!
