Ways to Support LGBTQ+ Families

Since the 1980s, Rainbow Families has connected, supported and educated LGBTQ parents, prospective parents and LGBTQ families by providing educational programs, social events, and discussion forums

Your support is what drives our efforts, strengthens our organization, and makes possible the successes we achieve on behalf of our community

As a small (but mighty!) grass-roots non profit, your investment is crucial in ensuring we are here to support, connect, and empower our community

Explore the many ways individuals, businesses and foundations can support LGBTQ+ family inclusion through Rainbow Families

Individual Donations

Rainbow Families’ outreach, education and support programs cannot happen without loyal, generous donors like you.

No matter the size, individual donations are the lifeline of a small, community-based hardworking nonprofit such as Rainbow Families.  Your donations help us provide expanded support programs, reduce registration fees, increase community connections, and ensure we are here to serve for years to come.

We are proud to have been selected as a member of United Way National Capital Area.   Our designed number is 9334.  If your employer participates in a matching program, this is an incredible way to double (or more!) your impact

We are also part of the Combined Federal Campaign.   For our United States Federal employees, please select Rainbow Families DC as your source of support, with our sincere gratitude.

Annual Family Conference Sponsorship

A valued tradition since 2003

The Rainbow Families Annual Family Conference is the largest gathering LGBTQ+ headed families in the region, drawing hundreds each year.  Our Conference provides a full day of workshops, inspiring speakers, awards, giveaways and more.  Our carefully structured workshop sessions allow LGBTQ+ families (and those considering family planning) to not only learn more about the topics that matter to them, but also to build on their own community of support.   Unlike other massive conferences, attendees and sponsors appreciate our ‘mid-size’ scale which allows for more personalized connections and relationship building

Businesses may become involved at a variety of levels, with benefits at each level.   Sponsors can opt to participate in our Resource Fair, as well as submit consideration to present a workshop – both offering opportunities to connect even more personally and directly with attendees.

We honor our Sponsors with significant ROI, introductions to new potential customers, and the ability to be recognized throughout the year
