The LGBT Network’s Donor Collective Program provides unique and focused program-specific giving opportunities.   Our Donor Collectives allow donors to make a bigger, more targeted impact with other like-minded people.  Participating donors make a pledge of a meaningful amount (usually $1,000 or more) to advance pressing and urgent program needs.  Not all participating donors need to pledge the same amount; some donors may pledge more or less than others.

The Donor Collectives Program is centered on one central tenant: Donors are only asked to fulfill their pledge when the LGBT Network has received all pledges needed to meet the specified program goal.  

For example, if the Donor Collective is focused on a program need that costs $50,000, the LGBT Network would seek out pledges totaling the goal of $50,000.  Once this goal has been reached with pledges, then the LGBT Network would inform all participating donors of this success and assist donors with fulfilling their pledge.

Our Donor Collectives include the following pressing program needs:
