Dear Friends,

It's not too late to give a gift this year! Consider making your donation in honor of a friend, family member or coworker. When you do, we will send them a handwritten card letting them know you have made the gift in their honor.

You can do this when donating by credit card (you will be prompted) or send us that information with your check to Rainbow World Fund, 4111 - 18th Street, Suite 5, San Francisco, CA 94114. Donate online here.

Tomorrow is the last day to make a 2016 tax-deductible year end gift

Thanks for your support throughout 2016. With your help we were able to accomplish many great works. Here are a few highlights:  

- Supporting our LGBTQ brothers and sisters in Guatemala, Iraq, and Syria who face extreme oppression by providing funds for the shelter, safe passage and medical needs  

- Providing aid to the survivors of the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting

- Providing health-care for HIV/AIDS orphans in South Africa and mental health care and social support for HIV positive children in Cuba

- Funding ongoing life saving humanitarian projects in Cambodia, Cuba, Honduras, Guatemala, and South Africa

- Distributing emergency humanitarian aid
following Hurricane Matthew in Haiti

RWF is the LGBTQ community responding to world need. 

Your generosity allowed us to help many of people in need around the world this year. We accomplished our three primary goals - to provide humanitarian aid to communities in need; to increase awareness within the LGBTQ community of the need for these aid efforts; and to change how the world sees LGBTQ people by putting our highest beliefs and values into action as we demonstrate our compassion and caring for the world.

Your gift of $50, $100, $500, $1,000, or more will mean that those at home or in far-distant lands will feel the support of the LGBTQ community.
