Your gift ensures that life-changing, life-saving programs and services are available for the most vulnerable members of our community. Make your one-time or monthly donation now. For amounts of $1,500 or more, become a sustaining donor.

You also can make a donation in someone's honor, in memory of a loved one, or celebrating a wedding or other significant life event by selecting that option on the main donation page. Special custom donation pages can also be made by request - just email [email protected]

Your donation of gently used clothes, and new underwear and socks, helps the many LGBT youth who rely on the Center. Learn how to donate here.

Donating appreciated securities, such as stocks or mutual funds, is a tax-wise approach to supporting the work of the Center. Learn more here.

RIDE 545

AIDS/LifeCycle is a fully supported, 7-day bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles that helps support the Center's HIV/AIDS-related programs and services. This landmark ride through beautiful California delivers a life-changing experience for thousands of participants from all backgrounds and fitness levels united by a common desire to do something heroic. Whether you're considering your first ride or are a seasoned veteran, we want you with us on AIDS/LifeCycle.


Help provide supportive, short-term housing for an LGBTQ youth age 18 to 24 who is experiencing housing instability as an interim step in their long-term housing plan. Youth are given weekly case management support and matches are on shared interests and goals that will create the foundation for lasting, meaningful relationships.
