Your LGBTQ Community Center is growing at a remarkable pace. With a robust and supportive membership, strong community ties, its own historic building and a diverse, resonant array of programs, the Center is the largest organization representing LGBTQ people and their families in the Hudson Valley. And we can’t do it without you!

Hudson Valley LGBTQ Community Center: Outdoor Sign

There are many ways to support the Center.

You may wish to support the Cornerstone Campaign, the Center’s capital campaign; or you may choose to explore planned giving options via the Legacy Circle. You may also consider providing a donation of goods or services to the live and silent auctions held at our annual Spring Gala, or becoming a Sustaining Member, with a monthly gift to support Center programs.


Cornerstone Foundation

The Hudson Valley LGBTQ Community Center’s Cornerstone Campaign provides opportunities to support the maintenance of our historic building at 300 Wall Street, in the original Stockade District of Uptown Kingston. Your tax-deductible contributions help fund a safe space for all, and a headquarters for the important work we do.

The Cornerstone Campaign also offers a limited number of Naming Opportunities. You can name a space you love after yourself, or honor a loved one with a unique and special remembrance. An etched glass plaque will mark the location you select for your gift.

Legacy Circle

Through the Legacy Circle, you can designate money or assets to be transferred to the Hudson Valley LGBTQ Community Center after your lifetime. You may download sample bequest language for assistance.

A bequest must be carefully drafted to ensure that it does what you want it to do. You are encouraged to review all suggested language with your attorney, to ensure that your wishes are carried out.

Annual Gala Auction

The live and silent auctions held at our annual Spring Gala provide revenue that funds the Center’s operating costs year to year. Bidding on items of value is lively and worthwhile. We welcome your donation of art, antiques, jewelry, textiles, gift items and other goods, as well as gift certificates for specialized services such as massage, professional organization, financial planning and more.

Donate something special to the Gala Auction.

While we welcome auction donations all year round, the deadline for entry into the 2017 Gala Auction is Monday, February 27. With questions, please call the Center at 845-331-5300 or email GalaAuction@lgbtqcenter.org.
