Donate to SPECTRUM

SPECTRUM’s Goals.  We want LGBTQ individuals to feel that they can be open about who they are without risking their safety or well-being.  We want them to know that they will be assisted by local agencies in an equitable manner.  We want them to feel fully included in the community.

SPECTRUM’s Work.  We offer a safe place where LGBTQ individuals can be transparent about who they are, and where they can find a support network.  We also provide programs and services for the LGBTQ community, as well as educational sessions for our allies.

Assisting SPECTRUM.  As a not-for-profit volunteer-driven community centre, SPECTRUM relies on financial assistance from our community.  This helps us keep our doors open by paying rent and insurance, but also assists us in delivering our services and programs.
