During early registration for the 2021 GISH Annual Hunt, a portion of every registration will be donated to True Colors United, a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to implementing innovative solutions to youth homelessness that focus on the unique experiences of LGBTQIA+ young people.
There are over 4.2 million youth experiencing homelessness in the US alone, and an estimated 40% of those young people identify as LGBTQIA+.
True Colors United is working to help meet the needs of these young people, offering training, education, advocacy, support, and resources to implement innovative solutions to youth homelessness that focus on the unique experiences of LGBTQ young people.
Founded over a decade ago by Cyndi Lauper, True Colors United is a platinum-rated 501(c)(3) charity that is fighting the good fight to ensure that the unique needs of LGBTQIA youth experiencing homelessness are met. They’re paving the way to an inclusive, safe world for LGBTQIA+ young people everywhere.
When you join the 2021 Annual GISH Hunt before Friday, December 4 at 11:59 PM PT, a portion of proceeds from your registration will go to supporting the important programs that True Colors United provides.
Through their innovative training and education, advocacy and youth action programs, True Colors United is working hard to help prevent and end homelessness in the LGBTQIA+ community. Together with your support, we can help ensure that LGBTQIA+ youth have safe spaces and the support they need so they can be free to be themselves and to thrive.
That’s about the price of a trip to the movies or 100 quarters for a whole week of world-changing fun—plus the chance to win an incredible Grand Prize… all by doing good and supporting LGBTQIA+ youth!
But that’s not all…
Your registration will go even further this year: due to a generous benefactor, every dollar will be matched — which means you’ll be doing double the good when you join the 2021 GISH Hunt, gift a registration or donate a Gisholarship!
But we know not everyone can afford $25.01, so we created The Gisholarship Fund to help EVERYONE to be able to play.
Need a little help to play? We’ve got you…
We know not everyone can afford $25.01, so we created The Gisholarship Fund to help EVERYONE to be able to play.
With our Gisholarship Fund, Gishers donate registrations to ensure everyone can be part of the GISH community, regardless of economic status. (We don’t always have enough donated registrations to help everyone, but we do our best to help as many as we can.) Gisholarships help change so many people’s lives, and deeply we appreciate Gishers who help make them happen.
Need a little help? Simply go through our registration process and when it asks for payment, select the Gisholarship option to apply.
