Gender Diversity’s Double Thanksgiving

Olimometer 2.52

From now until Dec 15, an incredible team of donors will match ALL FUNDS donated to Gender Diversity dollar-for-dollar up to $35,000!

A full match of every single dollar you contribute gets matched? That is rare!  We have our sights set on an exciting and ambitious goal – providing support to families across the nation and further!

PLUS, two donors have offered up an additional $2000 if we raise $25K by Nov 30th.

This is where YOU come in. We sure would appreciate your help in reaching our goal and your donation is tax-deductible. What an immediate way you can change the world!
