Membership is the heart of the Center. We are supported by annual and monthly contributions from individuals, families and businesses like yours.
Can you give a planned amount each month toward the Center’s programs for LGBTQ youth, advocacy for older adults, community education and so much more? Become a Sustaining Member and join the group of dedicated people whose generosity makes so much possible.
Cottam-Singleton Endowment for LGBTQ Youth
The Cottam-Singleton Endowment helps support the work we do with youth. The LGBTQ youth that come to the Center are some of the most vulnerable and this endowment allows us to enhance our programs and help them feel safe and supported. (link to Endowment)
The J. Tracy Hermann Scholarship Fund
The Center youth scholarship was renamed in recognition of the Center’s former Executive Director, J. Tracy Hermann, a highly esteemed civic leader who passed away in 2016 and brought many communities together through his steadfast commitment to equality and justice for all. The scholarship was created to provide financial support for a high school graduate who displays leadership toward LGBTQ equality. Scholarships will be awarded to students who identify as LGBTQ or as straight allies. (link to Scholarship)
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.
