Catchafire is powered by people. For Pride Month, we are highlighting the strength of the LGBTQ+ nonprofits we partner with and their impact. Our community is all inclusive - these are the voices and local leaders that power us.
This Pride Month, be proud of what you stand for and all that you have done for your community. Show your love and support to those in the LGBTQ+ community and volunteer. Whether it's your first time using Catchafire or your twentieth, every project supported creates an instant, tangible impact. Do something today that makes a difference and makes you proud.
Here are ways that volunteers on Catchafire are already donating their time and talent to LGBTQ+ supporting nonprofits, and some ways that you can support this June and beyond.
