Give OUT Day!

From now until the end of May 30th, every unique donor of $10 or more via Give Out Day gets us closer to winning an additional $10,000 in prize money! We're still over 25K short of our budget for 2024: that money can go a long way towards keeping queer⁠ sex⁠ ed available to young people!

Donate as little as $10
through this link during the month of May.

Give from DAFs

A donor-advised fund is a way to dedicate portions of your wealth to a fund which pays out over time, and continues to donate when you pass away. This can provide you immediate tax benefits on future donations, your charitable giving can become easier, and, because of the forward looking nature of DAFs, you can help sustain us and the work we do long term! A financial planner can tell you more or help you set up a donor-advised fund for Scarleteen or add us to an existing fund or you can email us for more information.
