On Wednesday night just before 11 p.m., our 50th donor to the LGBTQ+ Programs Fund Kickoff campaign gave enough to help us exactly reach our goal. It was a rather serendipitous moment - from the beginning, LGBTQ+ Programs has wanted to celebrate and honor the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising (which occurred in 1969). Yes, it's seen as one of the pivotal moments in LGBTQ+ history in the United States, but we also recognize that our program and similar initiatives across the country owe their existence in part to those individuals who were brave enough to stand up on that night in June for the LGBTQ+ community. So to make our $1,969 goal with 50 donors felt pretty magical and perfect.
We are so grateful to each and every person that donated and made this accomplishment possible - thank you for your support of not only this campaign but also our LGBTQ+ Bobcat Community.
And, there's still time left in the campaign - now we're looking forward to seeing how much we can exceed our goal!
