Join Sam in support of Oasis and Rainbow Center's Creating Community Campaign
What ORC will mean to me
Dear friends and family,
The local LGBTQA resource centers, Oasis Youth Center and the Rainbow Center, are moving, and I am fundraising to support this great project. As a Rainbow Center board member/volunteer and an Oasis volunteer, I’ve seen first hand the incredible impact the programs of both organizations make on the community in Tacoma and the South Sound.
The two centers will be sharing 6,000 sqft of space and starting a partnership that will enrich the entire lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and allied (LGBTQA) community. The new facility will feature:
–Increased operational hours
–More participants and engaged community members
–Expanded opportunities for educating the South Sound community about LGBTQ and Allied issues
–A national best practice model of partnership and collaboration
I am excited to be helping this new space come into existence/ In order to make this dream a reality, I need your help to meet my fundraising goal of $1000. A lot of people and organizations are stepping up to be a part of our Creating Community Campaign! There are tons of volunteers, a supportive landlord, and many community partners who are enthusiastic about being a part of this amazing effort. I want to invite you to be a part of this project as well. Check out our campaign website at http://www.orctacoma.org/
Please help to support my personal fundraising goal of $1000 by donating via my online giving page http://seeyourimpact.org/members/samh/. Thank you for helping me reach my goal and supporting the O.R.C. Creating Community Campaign.
Please help Oasis and the Rainbow Center move to a new location. The walls are up and we need another $60,000 to pay for the cost of renovation by June 30th. Any amount helps!
I just donated the cost of a week’s worth of lattes. It’s a sacrifice (I LOVE my tasty coffee), but worth it to help make a huge difference in our community. Can you make a small sacrifice this week to support the Creating Community Campaign?
I’m an Oasis volunteer and a Rainbow Center board member. I’ve seen first hand the incredible impact both organizations make in our community.
Help me make it a reality!
Oasis and the Rainbow Center
Oasis, a program of the Pierce County AIDS Foundation, enhances and sustains the health and well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) youth by saving individual lives, building community, and developing young leaders who can change the world. Oasis is a youth-adult partnership in which young people and adults come together for shared teaching, learning and action.
The Rainbow Center is a safe, accessible and welcoming community space for meetings, activities and events that strengthen the lives of people in our community. We support Greater Pierce County by providing a centralized source of information and referral for and about the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities. We provide visibility to the history, culture and diversity of our communities.
