Dear Friends,

2018 is Solano Pride's 20th Anniversary Year!  Since 1998 Solano Pride Center has worked to provide services and advocate for the LGBTQ community in Solano County.  
Every year, Give OUT Day is a nationwide day of giving to support LGBTQ centers large and small.  Our goal for GiveOUT Day 2018 is $15,000. You can help us achieve that through your generous contribution!  We have two methods you can donate to Solano Pride:

One-Time Donation: A one-time donation to Solano Pride still helps us to achieve our goals supporting the LGBTQ community in Solano County. Our immediate goals will be helped with your donation.  How much can you give?  To make your donation, simply click on the Donate to Solano Pride button below.


Monthly Donation:  Monthly recurring donations are especially helpful; they may have only a minor monthly effect on your budget.  Your recurring contribution will help us plan future services and activities that help our community.  Will you become a Partner in Pride by helping to sustain Solano Pride? To initiate your monthly donation, choose the amount and click Sustain Solano Pride below.
