Join Seth Kirby in support of Oasis and Rainbow Center's Creating Community Campaign
What ORC will mean to me
Dear Friends and Family,
Tacoma’s LGBTQA resource centers, Oasis Youth Center and the Rainbow Center, are moving, and I am fundraising to support this great project.
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. Our new center 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 because as the Oasis Director, I know our new center will truly change lives. In order to make this dream a reality, I need your help to meet my fundraising goal of $5,000. 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 $5,000 by donating via my online giving page at http://seeyourimpact.org/members/sethk/. Thank-you for helping me reach my goal and supporting the O.R.C. Creating Community Campaign.
Here’s to our future!
Hi Friends –
If you’ve already given to the Oasis and Rainbow Center Creating Community Campaign, THANK YOU!! If you haven’t had a chance to give yet, please do so.
We just received a thank you email from an Oasis alum: “Oasis brings back a lot of memories of my teen years. Without Oasis I don’t know where I would be today. Thank you so much for being there for a young gay man who had no idea what to do. I wish I was still in the Tacoma area to see the new place and help out! ”
The thing is, what we have here in Tacoma is so special. For many, having a vibrant, safe, supportive LGBTQ and Allied resource center is truly life-saving and life-changing. With your help, we will have many more success stories like the one above.
Please show your support by giving to the Creating Community Campaign.
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.
