Every dollar makes a difference.

Whether you can give $10, $50, $100 or even more, it all helps. Every $10 supports one at-risk LGBTQ youth for one day of complete services at Hetrick-Martin Institute. From a hot meal after school to finding community to finding a high school where they belong, the Hetrick-Martin Institute opens doors to a world of possibility for youth. We help LGBTQ youth through a variety of programs like HIV-prevention, job-readiness training and internships, and the fully accredited Harvey Milk High School. All funds raised in this campaign will be used to establish the Liquidity Reserve Fund, a safety net for the Hetrick-Martin Institute in the case it's unable to cover expenses through other fundraising efforts.
