Dear RWF Friends,

Like the rest of the world, Rainbow World Fund's Board of Directors is devastated by the senseless attack on the Pulse nightclub this past weekend in Orlando, Florida.  Our hearts go out the victims, their families and friends, and to our global LGBTQ and friends family. Rainbow World Fund was founded on the belief that we are all one human family and in the days ahead, it is our hope that we can all find comfort and strength in this truth.  


We stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Orlando. Tragedies create many financial needs through loss of work, medical costs not covered by insurance, and funeral costs. Rainbow World Fund is currently working with organizations in Orlando that are providing aid to the victims and their families. If you would like to help, please consider making a tax-deductible donation our secure website or by mailing a check. Please specify "Orlando".

We are committed to ensuring that all LGBTQ people are accepted fully wherever they live, and that the world will see that our community is one of peace, hope, and love. 

June 23: Join us at San Francisco's Academy of Science LGBT Pride Party in Golden Gate Park. This is one of our favorite parties. Be sure to stop by RWF's table learn about our latest projects and pick up a rainbow pride bracket. Join drag queen extraordinaire Heklina for a very special drag tribute to David Bowie and Prince. The evening features music by House of Babes' DJ Leah Perloff and Juanita More.   
Party at the Academy! 

June 26: Be sure to drop by the RWF's Bus of Hope in Jane Warner Plaza in the Castro during San Francisco's 2016 Pride Celebration. We'll be collecting school supplies for needy children in Mexico and monetary contributions for our 2017 Bus of Hope caravan to Mexico.

Volunteers are needed to be hosts on the bus on June 26. Interested? Send us a message.
