Matching Grant Awarded to the Pride Agenda
Today at work we received exciting news, Sean Eldridge, Political Director, Freedom to Marry & Chris Hughes, Co-Founder, Facebook, and Founder, Jumo committed to match every tax-deductible donation made to the Empire State Pride Agenda Foundation between now and the end of the year, up to $50,000! In a time when budgets are being slashed and there is so much work to be done to win equality and justice for all New Yorkers this is excellent news! If you are interested in making a donation, go here, remember that this is a matching grant, so you donate $25 and we actually get $50, plus your donation is completely tax deductible. These donations will further our education and advocacy work so that passing bills like the Marriage Equality bill and the Transgender Civil Rights bill become law in New York state.
