UW Combined Fund Drive


You can help support LGBTQ+ nonprofits through the UWCFD

LGBTQ+ nonprofits receive less than 1% of all overall charitable giving, according to research from the Equitable Giving Lab at Indiana University. We invite you to demonstrate your pride and offer support to local and national LGBTQ+ organizations working to make equality and belonging a reality for all.
