We Need You

We know people are busy and very often physically and financially extended. We get it. But if you believe in what we're trying to accomplish, we ask you find a way to stand with us and get involved in a way that works for you. It can be as simple as a share on social media, to volunteering at an event, or supporting us financially. Anything you can do will be appreciated and make a difference.


Did we mention we like to have fun? There are many opportunities to volunteer with the LGBTQ Center. It can be as simple as taking a shift at a booth during one of our local events, or putting your network to work with a fundraising event. Have a little more time? Maybe you’d be interested in working with our youth on the Mas(Queer)Ade Ball, or becoming a part of our fundraising committee. Whatever you do, we promise you’ll meet a bunch of terrific people while making a positive impact on our LGBTQ community. Ready to volunteer? Then hit the button below!

Financial Support

Every Dollar Helps

There are many ways to support The LGBTQ Center of the Cape Fear Coast. As a 501(c)(3) organization, your financial support is tax deductible. Whether making a one-time, monthly or annual donation, becoming a corporate sponsor, arranging for a legacy gift, or simply adding a button to your Facebook page – all support is appreciated. Choose from five sponsorship levels: Friend, Advocate, Mentor, Champion and Patron. If you'd like to learn more about what's outlined here, simply Contact Us.


When we say every dollar helps, we mean it. We now offer the opportunity to contribute monthly through the recurring donation option via PayPal. As little as $5.00 a month provides $60.00 dollars of funding a year. Please consider a recurring monthly payment of anywhere from $5.00 to a $100.00 a month. Or simply make a one-time donation.


Our Advocate category is suggested for those wishing to make a one-time donation individually, on behalf of a friend or loved-one, or as a small business. The suggested donation amount is $500.


Mentors are those that give $1,000 whether annually or as part of a sponsorship for smaller events held throughout the year. Contact us to find out more about specific sponsorship opportunities coming up!


A LGBTQ Center Champion is a donor contributing at the $2,500 level. Champions often allocate their gift to a specific program or mid to large-sized event. Champions receive special recognition at the designated event, in promotional material and on our website.


You are a LGBTQ Center Patron when making a donation (cash or property) of $5,000 or more. All Patrons will receive special recognition at the LGBTQ Center’s events, inclusion in ongoing electronic and print marketing material, and prominent placing and profile on our website.

Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself. – Harvey Fierstein
