LezVolley is happy to announce that they will be donating funds to the Stonewall Inn Gives Back Initiative, the official 5013C non-profit of the Stonewall Inn. Partial Proceeds from LezVolley will benefit the initiative whose mission is to help some of the most marginalized members of the LGBTQ community, especially those that live in areas where equality has been slow to arrive.
“Working with The Stonewall Inn for the past 10 years has given me many opportunities and amazing connections throughout the years. We, as an organization, want to give our thanks with more than words. Giving back to The Stonewall Inn by donating to The Stonewall Inn Gives Back Initiative comes from our heart as we are part of a family. We couldn’t be prouder and happier.” Said Danielle, Co-Owner of LezVolley.
What you need to know about The Stonewall Inn Gives Back Initiative

“We really want to help grassroot LGBTQ organizations across the country that need our help in raising funds and bringing awareness to their needs and their issues. We somewhat live in a bubble, here in New York, and there are so many people that live in areas where they still face daily discrimination. We need to make sure they have the resources and are given the visibility to thrive in their local communities.” Said Stacy Lentz, CEO of the Stonewall Inn Gives back initiative and Co-Owner of the Stonewall Inn.
The Stonewall Inn gives Back Initiative recently partnered with the Matria foundation in Puerto Rico to raise funds for displaced LGBTQ people after the Hurricane and also has helped raise funds for the Missippi LGBTQ fund as they face some of the toughest state laws against LGBTQ people in the country.
