      There’s also the small but mighty Trinity Place Shelter in NYC that I don’t think a lot of people know about yet: http://trinityplaceshelter.org/

      The Rainbow Community Center in Contra Costa County, CA serves the queer community with a food pantry, senior and youth groups, counseling services and many volunteer opportunities. The agency is truly about creating community and is also very dependent on private donations.

      Outreach United is a non profit serving mostly the Houston, TX area. We have provided funding to the Homeless GLBT youth program, scholarship program, and SPRY the program for elderly GLBT. We also have provided assistance to several other groups through out the 5 years we have been around.

      Howard Brown is an amazing agency and their service providers are outstanding – they deserve our support! But their current CEO, Jamal Edwards, has recently banned our local gay paper (the Windy City Times) and takes home a shocking $265,000 per year, while the paper reports that he’s cutting healthcare and pay from his own staff and that every senior manager he’s hired has left the agency in less than a year. We should all do our research. If I’m going to support their worthy cause and services, I’ll restrict my gift to a specific department and insist it not support their expensive and messy management dept.

      @DS: Thanks DS for the information. We will be conducting an investigation on this in 2012. How many vacation homes in Palm Springs do Gay, Inc. execs need!

      The GLBT National Help Center could always use some added support. They run the oldest GLBT support hotline in the world, both a youth and adult hotline, and peer support online services.

      CASA of Riverside County http://www.casariversidecounty.org/ addresses the needs the needs of LGBTQ foster youth. They are the first CASA program in the state doing so, but it is being replicated elsewhere. 20% of the youth in Riverside County are self-reported as being LGBT. That’s actually how a number of them found their way in to the foster care system.

      I randomly pick a group each month from the youth, community, and senior nonprofit groups listed at http://www.gaycommunitycenters.org and donate to that nonprofit.

      MGLCC is a great choice. Few places in the US are harder on gay youth than the South and that Center is the only one for hundreds of miles around. Its a little place that does a lot of work.
