Gifts to DU PRIDE: LGBTQ+ Student Support Fund contribute to:
2,552 Donors - $942,234 Donated

Hosted by DU Pride Alumni Affinity and the Office of Gender and Sexuality, your contribution will fund the inaugural “DU LGBTQ+ Clothing Closet” and other programming that supports LGBTQ+ students.

LGBTQ+ and gender non-conforming students at DU often have difficulties with access to places to shop without facing discrimination, and do not have the financial resources for identity-affirming items like clothes, haircuts, and binders. Compounded with the health and racial pandemic, LGBTQ+ students are some of our most under supported as their needs are not met by traditional or family support systems or financial aid.

Your impact will alleviate the heavy financial and emotional burden of our LGBTQ+ students by providing access to identity-affirming resources. Your donation will directly support an LGBTQ+ student, and will fund both the operational costs and items offered through the “DU LGBTQ+ Closet” and other programming initiatives.

It’s not “just a dress” or “just a haircut” - it’s celebrating our students and affirming their diverse identities!

Did you know that your gift to the University of Denver could qualify for a charitable tax deduction of up to $300 for individuals ($600 for couples filing jointly), even if you don’t itemize your deductions? More info here: https://giftplanning.du.edu/extended-tax-benefits
