Rainbow Street invites you to take your leadership of the global LGBTQ movement to the next level by increasing your regular gift by $5 or more. Our goal is to welcome 51 new or increased monthly donors in just 51 days, by July 3. By increasing your gift, you’ll boost support for Rainbow Street's LGBTQ shelter program in Jordan and Lebanon. All gifts are critically needed and make an enormous difference for LGBTQ refugees!
51 is chosen in honor of the year 1951, when the United Nations set forth the expectations for the protections of refugees. The 1951 Refugee Convention is the key document that details the rights of the displaced and the obligations of states to protect them. The main principle is that no one should be forced to return to a country where they face serious threats to their life or their freedom.
Monthly gifts are crucial to supporting Rainbow Street’s life-saving work, helping us plan far into the future. While fundraising moments like Pride and year-end holidays are seasonal, the pressing needs of homeless LGBTQ folks are not. Your increased commitment means Rainbow Street can respond to more clients, more quickly.
It's who we are
Rainbow Street provides the community support that LGBTQ refugees need, consistent with the principles set forth in the 1951 Refugee Convention. You’re already a leader in this cause. Demonstrate your commitment by increasing your gift today!
