The Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Southern Nevada Inc

OUR MISSION
The Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Southern Nevada (The Center), a community-based organization, supports and promotes activities directed at furthering the well-being, positive image, and human rights of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer community, its allies, and low to moderate income residents in Southern Nevada.

OUR GOALS
Our goal is to empower our community with integrity and compassion by offering a variety of programs and services to improve the overall well-being of the LGBTQ community and our allies. We strive to achieve our goals by responding to the needs of the community, leveraging resources including our talented and dedicated volunteers and funders; and forming strong and meaningful partnerships with other organizations.

FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITIES
Honorarium: The Center’s 22nd annual Gala will be Oct. 8 at The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan. We will honor the Corporation of the Year, Person of the Year and Allies of the Year. Sponsorship opportunities and tickets are now available. All proceeds go directly to The Center to continue offering programming and services for those in need.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
