Support Emory's LGBTQ Community
The college years are critical for LGBTQ students. Whether it’s being away from home for the first time or addressing the experience of coming out, transitioning, a relationship challenge, or dealing with harassment, the challenges of college life can be even more difficult for LGBTQ students.
LGBTQ initiatives at Emory provide programming to help students facing these challenges. Providing a strong network of support and a diverse set of resources is vital in helping LGBTQ students successfully navigate their college experience and beyond.
You can help. Make a gift to ensure that Emory has the resources to allow our LGBTQ students to thrive. Emory is a community of compassion, cooperation, and collaboration—and your support proves this.

Your financial support makes a difference
There are many opportunities for you to support Emory’s LGBT community—featured funds include:
GALA Legacy Fund, created by Emory LGBT Alumni, supports the expansion of existing student leadership and professional development opportunities such as LGBT graduate and professional student networking events as well as new campus-wide education campaigns on sexuality and gender through digital and print ads. Your gifts can give LGBT students opportunities to attend retreats or conferences and participate in advocacy activities across campus and throughout Atlanta.
The Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library (MARBL)'s LGBT Fund supports political collections that document the work of activists, organizations, and trailblazing political figures to achieve equality. Your support can help digitize the LGBT collections and provide grants to visiting scholars and graduate students to use them.
Office of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Life Fund supplements the office's annual budget for initiatives such as the Emory Safe Space Program and provides financial support for newly formed programs such as the Queer & Trans People of Color community series. Your gifts help the development of students of all gender and sexual identities through activities that create an affirming and just campus.
The Candler Fund for Justice and Inclusion Fund supports student-led efforts to spotlight the voices of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, gender-nonconforming, and queer individuals. Your support makes special programming possible - like the Sacred Worth's 2019 lecture and discussion day with Bishop Tonyia Rawls, founder and director of the Freedom Center for Social Justice.
