Giving Tuesday 2012
We have a day for giving thanks. A day for big in-store deals. Another for small business sales. And yet another for online shopping. This year, help create #GivingTuesday — a day to show your support for non-profit and other charitable organizations who work hard every day to serve the people in our communities.
FORGE is passionate about the work we do to. For the past 18 years, we have worked to improve the lives of transgender, gender non-conforming and SOFFA individuals (Significant Other, Friends, Family and Allies). Our work includes:
- providing vital training and technical assistance to anti-violence and crime victim service professionals on how to more effectively and respectfully serve transgender, gender non-conforming, and SOFFA survivors of violence
- supporting the healing of transgender, gender non-conforming, and SOFFA survivors of violence through direct services, resources, and referrals
- contributing to national policy discussions and decisions on transgender aging and anti-transgender bias and violence
- fostering growth, knowledge, and community for transgender, gender non-conforming and SOFFA individuals in Wisconsin (and beyond).
We know that you, too, care about and are committed to creating a world where everyone is free to express themselves, free of the ‘isms’ that wound us all, and free from violence of any kind that is based on gender identity or expression.
Your donation matters: Every donor and every contribution, no matter how large or small, makes a difference.
With a heart full of thanks,
micahel munson, Executive Director
P.S. If you just opened your e-mail and #GivingTuesday has passed, you can still make a difference by making a year-end tax deductible donation today!
