SC Equality year-end fundraising campaign ended with a bang last week, capping of an exciting year of change and ushering in a new year of growth under new executive director Ryan Wilson.

According to an email from the group to its supporters, SC Equality broke through its $7,500 December 2012 fundraising goal to reach a total of $12,425. A matching contribution of $7,500 brings the total fundraising to nearly $20,000.

SC Equality is the Palmetto State’s LGBT education and advocacy organization. Their work will begin in earnest this week as the South Carolina General Assembly returns to work today.

Matt Comer previously served as editor from October 2007 through August 2015 and as a staff writer afterward in 2016.
