“The impact this foundation has had on so many lives is overwhelming. The grants provided to small LGBT groups have helped a multitude of people in their day-to-day lives. I feel confident in the board to be good stewards of their funds and would not hesitate to recommend to others to become a part of this organization” –Sue F
“I have had the privilege of working as a volunteer with this wonderful organization for several years. The ANYTOWN program made a difference in my life and my daughter’s life. Having an opportunity to serve as an ANYTOWN advisor gave me the opportunity to see firsthand how the program has a lasting impact on our young people. It challenges and teaches them how to effectively fight bigotry and racism in their schools and communities! Our community is fortunate to have such an awesome program that promotes diversity!” –MarchelleF
