CenterLink: The Community of LGBT Centers
June 30, 2009
CenterLink is one of the most effective national LGBT focused organizations. For such a small staff and budget, the organization impacts thousands of people by supplying technical support and capacity assistance to LGBT community centers both in the U.S. and internationally. In cities large and small, the community centers are often the first point of resource for individuals seeking community. Many of these community centers are largely volunteer run and CenterLink offers expertise and training for staff and board members. Without this organization, many centers and their leaders would feel they face the world "alone" and their non-profit growing pains are unique. As a former Center E.D., this organization gave me a sense of comradery and the opportunity to rub shoulders with those far more experienced. I've been proud to serve on this organization's board of directors for the past five years.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my own life and in the lives of others. What they do is enormously effective, especially when one considers their budget and staff size. Be a donor!!!
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Offer more and more frequent progams that would insure the long time viability and the growth of LGBT Community Centers.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Board Member & I was a recipient of services from the organization, then became a board member.
