Larry Dunivan and David Gibson

An Evening with Arise Project

Join us to explore how your passion and commitment can help end homelessness for LGBTQ youth in the Twin Cities.

On any given night in Minnesota, 4,700 young people experience homelessness. Of those, 40% identify as LGBTQ. Our community needs you, and we’re asking you to rise to the challenge.

We can end homelessness for LGBTQ youth in Minnesota. We invite you to join us at our home on September 20 to learn how. See the invitation.

In partnership with Arise Project, we’re dedicating $25,000 toward immediate impact in 2019. We’re also creating a $25,000 challenge grant, which means we’ll match up to $25,000 in gifts from champions like you. Our goal is to at least double our contribution.

We hope you’ll join us to learn how you can create an immediate impact for thousands of LGBTQ Minnesotans. If you’re unable to attend, we hope you’ll consider making a contribution directly below.

Thank you and see you soon,
Larry Dunivan & David Gibson
