Our Foundation works to cultivate LGBTQ+ leaders by building a pipeline of support for successful futures aimed at making a difference for our community. We expanded partnerships by funding school district LGBTQ+ student leadership activities, a high school employment internship, and the CSUS Laurie McBride scholarships, awarding two this year. Your generous contributions made all the difference, and we are grateful for the confidence you have in us. We know there is more to do!
Research reveals the price of attending California colleges far exceeds support provided by financial aid.
⦁ 1 in 5 community college students & 1 in 10 at CSU reported at least
one experience with homelessness while in school.
⦁ It costs CSUS students nearly $25,0000 a year in educational expenses
& students at our region’s community colleges, more than $20,000.
How can students succeed when it is so difficult just to make ends meet, struggling with housing and food insecurities? And we know that LGBTQ+ youth too often face more complicated challenges.
Our work together represents a collective commitment to leadership necessary to protect and extend equity to all. LGBTQ+ youth need our encouragement and investment. That is our purpose! With your help we can extend our reach as we establish in 2020 the Sam Catalano Scholarship available to students of the Los Rios Community College District campuses.
Together we represent a collective commitment to leadership necessary to protect and extend equity to all. Thank you for supporting future leaders of our community. Please consider donating at www.sacstonewallfoundation.org/donate/
