Proceeds raised through our fundraising endeavors are donated to organizations and shelters that benefit LGBTQ+ youth
REASON TO DONATE TO THE COLORS OF LOVE
It is a Standard Operating Procedure of The Colors of Love to make our contributions to shelters and organizations that cater to LGBTQ+ people. Last year, over $50,000 was gifted to one shelter in NYC. We are planning to expand upon that this year by making contributions to LGBTQ+ shelters in every state that our donors are from!
Whenever possible, The Colors of Love will convert donations into purchases of gift cards that are then donated to the appropriate shelter. It is our experience that providing shelters with gift cards for food or other basic necessities offers a sense of validity and validation to the receiver, while alleviating the staff from having to decide the best way to use your gift. Gift cards are given to the director of the shelter for use at their discretion.
*The Colors of Love is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization (EIN #86-2491552) and your gift is tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
