What is Giving Tuesday?
Following Thanksgiving, Giving Tuesday is a day dedicated to giving to your favorite non-profit organizations and celebrated globally!
Our Youth Leaders need to eat too! The BAGLY Community Center is open over 70 hours a week and supplies both meals and healthy snacks for our youth leaders every single day. In addition, BAGLY provides meals for Monthly Family Dinner, the Ballroom Collective, and the Trans Youth Summit.
Your generous donation means you can continue to supply our community center with nutritious, sustainable meals and snacks to keep youth leaders energized and strong.
Serving over 2,500 youth each year though its programs and activities, BAGLY has helped over 30,000 young people!
BAGLY is the nation's longest running LGBTQ+ Youth Organization in the nation! Founded in 1980, BAGLY provides a safe, non-exploitative environment where members can make friends, discuss experiences, and receive support, information and referrals about sexual orientation, gender identity and other issues of concern.
BAGLY’s Boston based programs includes social support, leadership development and health promotion programs. BAGLY serves as the coordinator of the GLBT Youth Group Network of Massachusetts, a network of over 15 community-based groups similar to BAGLY though out the state. BAGLY provides local and national expertise and advocacy in support of programs, polices and services for GLBT youth, through community organizing, public education, and state and national movement building initiatives.
How will my donation help?
With your donation, we would be able to provide food, entertainment, clinic supplies, and opportunities for a youth outing to allow them to get together outside of the community center. All money raised on Giving Tuesday is going right into bettering their experience here at BAGLY. No donation is too small. We appreciate your support, and for choosing to donate to us this year! We wouldn’t be able to continue supporting our LGBTQ+ youth as long as we have if it weren’t for donors like you!
