give-out-day-square-logoCHARLOTTE, N.C. — Several LGBT community groups based in North Carolina and South Carolina were able to raise more than $25,000 in a single 24-hour national day of philanthropy last week.

The groups participated in the national “Give OUT Day” on May 9, which utilized “crowdfunding” to raise support for groups across the country.

Local groups that participated in the event include (links to fundraising pages included):

Another local organization, the Foundation For The Carolinas, which operates the Charlotte Lesbian & Gay Fund, also had a profile though they did not seem to actively participate. They did not raise any money during the event.

The national day of giving was supported by the Razoo Foundation, which said it “exists to promote and provide online charitable giving solutions that support a new era in philanthropy.”

South Carolina Equality raised the most money.

“The LGBT movement in South Carolina is stronger today because of our collective effort on this project and we have all committed to continuing to work together more closely in the year ahead,” South Carolina Equality Executive Director Ryan Wilson said in a statement.
