WE HAVE A DREAM
Our dream is to empower lesbians, homosexuals, bisexuals, transgender, and intersex people (LGBTI’s) worldwide. We do this through supporting projects that give support to LGBTI’s, with a focus on the improvement of human rights, living and working conditions. We want to create opportunities for LGBTI’s, so that they are able to live their lives in the way that they choose, using their talents and potential, just as we have been given such opportunities in our lives. The Give a Damn circle works together, learns together, and chooses together for the projects that we support.
WHAT WE SUPPORT
We support projects worldwide that have the potential to produce practical results and create concrete opportunities for LGBTI’s, including projects in difficult circumstances. We support small-scale projects and initiatives that focus on improvement of human rights, living and working conditions. We support financially by means of a donation, but we also offer, if requested, other kinds of support on the basis of our expertise.
We bundle our strengths in a giving circle of people who work together to realise a dream: contributing to the opportunities for LGBTI’s worldwide.
As a diverse network that discusses the projects that we support, we pay attention to project results, inspiring each other, and celebrating successes.
We create the ultimate autonomy as contributors to the circle, and make the choices ourselves as to which projects we support together. All circle members participate actively in the selection of the projects that we support.
WE GIVE A DAMN
We have been given, have created, and have benefitted from, opportunities in our lives. We are very much aware of our privileged position in a wealthy and relatively tolerant country such as The Netherlands. Not everyone gets such opportunities, and that is why we want to give something back and create opportunities for LGBTI’s. We want to support brave and beautiful LGBTI initiatives and projects worldwide with financial support. We focus on initiatives that bring the freedom that we experience in our daily lives, a step closer for others. We give a damn!
The Give a Damn circle has 44 members as of 2023 and a number of donors. We have the ambition to grow. Don’t hesitate to contact us at email@example.com if you are interested in joining, or finding out more.
