City for LGBT+ Crowdfunding event goes virtual
We are proud to announce that City for LGBT+ is back – and it’s virtual!
GiveOut and Consortium are joining forces with The Funding Network for the second edition of City for LGBT+, the UK’s only live crowdfunding event in support of LGBT+ causes. This event is kindly supported by Macquarie Group.
Join us for an exciting evening of live crowdfunding, where you’ll have the opportunity to make a difference to the lives of LGBT+ individuals and communities in the UK and around the world.
Last year’s event raised over £25,000 for four inspiring non-profits. This year, BlackOut UK, Opening Doors London, UHAI Eashri and L’Union Féministe Libre will tell us about their vital work fighting discrimination and injustice. Each speaker will have just five minutes to pitch and five minutes for questions, followed by an exciting live crowdfunding session where you’ll have the chance to support these fantastic causes. The event will begin with a short talk from actor, activist, MEP, co-founder of Stonewall and member of the House of Lords, Michael Cashman.
Attendance is free and, while there is no obligation to make a donation, we hope you’ll feel inspired to do so.
