  6. To explore possible interest in creating formal structures to advance research and growth in LGBT philanthropy and to create links with similar organizations in Canada, the United States and abroad
  7. To demonstrate to the wider community LGBT leadership in philanthropy


Donor Recognition Event

Philanthropy is at the heart of the LGBT Giving Network. Without the support of donors and philanthropists, the member agencies simply could not carry out their critical work.

The LGBT Giving Network is proud to provide member agencies the opportunity to celebrate and recognize their donors at this event. The last event, hosted by Charles Pachter, Mark S. Bonham and Jamie Watt, was a huge success. The next event is scheduled for fall 2012 and you don’t want to miss it!
