LGBT-FAN has started a charitable fund to help cover living expenses for LGBT asylum seekers in the U.S.
As an all-volunteer network, the vast majority of your donation will go directly to serving impacted asylum communities, with a small portion covering our minute overhead costs. The LGBT-FAN Fund is administered by the Greater New Orleans Foundation (GNOF), which has decades of experience in hosting charitable funds and charges only a 1% processing fee. All donations are tax deductible as charitable contributions, and may be made via cheque or online. Either way you donate, GNOF will send you documentation of your donation for your tax records, which will clarify that your donation is for the LGBT-FAN Fund.
