Why Give?

The National Center for Lesbian Rights has grown in leaps and bounds in order to meet the ever-increasing demand for our legal work. We will do whatever it takes to protect our lives, and those of future generations.

Why Give to NCLR?

NCLR’s achievements were unimaginable in 1977 when it was founded. Today, NCLR has built a legacy of legal and policy successes that directly touch the lives of every lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender person in our diverse community. We are positioned to become an even more visible and vital leader in the critical years ahead.

Give Now

We know that this moment in history is precarious. Our track record as leaders in the forefront of family, marriage, transgender, elder, immigration, sports, and youth law provides us with the experience to effectively respond in this critical moment. We cannot afford to stand still or slow down. There is no alternative. NCLR must grow because LGBT lives depend on it.

Give More Than Ever

The road ahead will bring even greater challenges. We must have the depth and resources to respond quickly and strategically—to be both proactive and defensive—which demands a level of investment greater than ever before. No one is going to win these battles for us. And we cannot wait.

More than ever, you need us and we need you.
