Essex County LGBT RAIN Foundation



How You Can Help

Your generous funding will help assist us with the cost of further development, operational needs, utilities and food for the residents who need us.

Our organization needs pledging but above all it needs your attention and interest! If you love this service as much as we do then please take a moment to click on one of our social media buttons (Facebook, Twitter and Youtube at the bottom of the page). Help us spread the word and get things started!

Donatations large or small, we need it.. , donate $10; do something positive that will have a direct impact on LGBT youth in New Jersey

How We’ll Use the Funds

We need about $27,600 in order to pay one full years mortgage to house homeless youth and adolescents. We think it is important to mention 100% of the donations received will be going toward payment of the house; none of the founders or executive level staff is going to be taking any pay.

Final Thank You and Links

We feel so grateful to everyone who has taken the time to read about the campaign and for those who contributed what they could to make a difference and helping us spread the word.  We have spent the last year or so working hard to bring our vision to life in this cause and it was worth every minute thanks to all our generous supporters.  Please know your efforts, even the smallest, don’t go unnoticed.  We will continue to keep you posted on what your donation helped us achieve.  You are part of our family.

If you cannot donate but you are interested in helping, please contact us so we can set you up with a referral/volunteer program!
