Builder Fund – Your donation will be used to fund our office space, including rent, expenses, supplies, and furnishings to make the Center more accessible and comfortable for our volunteers and guests.
Endowment Fund - A portion of your donation (50% unless otherwise specified in campaign materials) will be sent to our Endowment Fund managed by the Eau Claire Community Foundation.

Transforming the Valley - Your donation will help fund programs that support transgender individuals.
Youth Fund – Your donation will provide entertainment and resources for our youth support efforts. Note this money is not used for education; Prom has a separate fund, below.

Higher Education Fund – Your donation will be directed to our Andrew Cray Memorial Higher Education Fund.
Events & Outreach Fund – Your donation will be used to fund outreach projects and events, including tables at local fairs. Outreach is an essential component of our operations and many of our smaller events run at cost or a small deficit. Please note that this fund does not include individual Pride Sponsorships or Prom Sponsorships.
Pride Sponsorships – Your donation will help us provide additional activities, allow for smoother operations, and defer out-of-pocket costs for our vendors, organizers, and guests. Personal Pride sponsorships will be applied to the next annual Pride event (e.g., sponsorships in July, 2021, will be applied to the 2022 event).
After you donate...
Receipts and Recognition – Your donation will be noted with an email from our processor. If you need additional tax documentation, contact our organization's treasurer. (Donations greater than $250 will have a tax letter emailed to the credit card holder's email on file.) Unless you have requested your donation be listed as "Anonymous," our monthly newsletter will include your name as a sponsor/donor in its next issue. You will also be recognized on our annual recognition plaque. Unless otherwise specified, the name will appear "B. Donor" as it appears on payment information.
