For 35 years LYRIC has empowered thousands of LGBTQQ+ youth on their journey to becoming healthy, successful, and thriving adults. LYRIC envisions a diverse society where LGBTQQ+ youth are embraced for who they are and encouraged to be who they want to be. By working towards social justice and supporting young leaders, their families and allies, LYRIC is building a world that honors, respects and appreciates LGBTQQ youth and their contributions.


Join us by investing in vibrant LGBTQQ+ futures today!  There are a number of ways to support:


Your financial contributions have the most direct impact in supporting us to continue providing critical services to LGBTQQ youth all day, every day. At the core of our fundraising, we build authentic, on-going relationships with donors.

matching donations

Ask your company if they match employee donations or volunteer hours; you may be able to double or even triple the impact of your gift! Matching policies vary–some even include retirees and spouses.


Sponsor LYRIC’s signature event: Pride Pour. Pride Pour is an intentional celebration of queer joy, resilience, and the power of community. Attendees will experience a cornucopia of 30+ of the finest wineries, including non-alcoholic options, and enjoy delectable heavy hors d’oeuvres all while raising money to invest in our LGTBQQ+ youth.

Join LYRIC’s chosen family of supporters, friends, community leaders, influencers, and more as we show up for our LGTBQQ+ youth and raise essential resources to ensure their ability to thrive.
