Give OUT Day is an annual, 24-hour online fundraising competition that unites the LGBT community nationally to raise funds to support the diverse array of LGBT nonprofits including community centers, arts groups, organizers, clinics, student clubs and sports leagues.
This year will be the third annual Give OUT Day. Thousands of people from across the country come together to donate a grand total of $1,016,623 last year hundreds of dollars to their favorite local organizations. In addition $80 thousand in prize funds were handed out last year, engaging the most individual donors across a national and nine local and regional leaderboards.
National Give OUT Day was launched in 2013 and has raised over $1.6 million for over 500 LGBT organizations from all 50 states, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico.
