PFLAG Cleveland "Give Back" Campaign

posted Oct 7, 2018, 10:29 AM by Quentin Jamieson   [ updated Jan 16, 2019, 1:56 PM by Kavita Sherman ]

Fall is upon us and the new year is just around the corner.  As you plan for ways to give back to our community, consider helping PFLAG Cleveland in one of the following ways:  
  • Support our higher education scholarship fund by donating to PFLAG Cleveland in honor of Dr. Jes Sellers, co-founder of our local chapter.
  • Attend or sponsor PFLAG through Executive Caterer’s annual "Phil~an~thro~pi~a" event, supporting local non-profit organizations. Monday December 3 at Landerhaven. http://landerhaven.com/philanthropia/. The cost of admission is a tax-deductible check in the amount of $75 or more made out to the 501(c)(3) charity of your choice. We hope you choose PFLAG Cleveland! 
  • Make an end of the year donation to help us in our mission to provide support and outreach education to struggling LGBTQA individuals, their families and friends.
  • Remember PFLAG Cleveland in your estate planning as some have done over the years, including Bruce and Lou Kriete and more recently, by Dr. Bob Asch. The latter gift helped to establish the PFLAG Scholarship fund in Dr. Sellers’ name.
For more information or questions on how to GIVE BACK, contact Art Thomson, PFLAG Cleveland Treasurer, 216-502-7891. Alternatively write: mail@pflagcleveland.org with questions, or visit: http://www.pflagcleveland.org/membership
