Give Out Day
Tomorrow is Give OUT Day, and we have a big goal: to raise $1 million in a single day for hundreds of LGBTQ nonprofits across the country. It’s never been done before, but because of supporters like you, I know we can do it. Please spread the word and ask your friends and family to donate.
As a valued supporter of ZAMI NOBLA, will you join us right now by scheduling a donation:
Why give on Give OUT Day specifically? Every participating organization has the opportunity to earn additional prize money if it has the highest number of individual donors in its category. So your gift has the potential to go so much further.
We have just 24 hours to reach our goal. But if you schedule your donation now, your gift will be counted among the total raised on April 18. Thank you for scheduling your donation now.
In Community Spirit,

An Update on the ZAMI NOBLA Biggers Residence for Black Lesbian Elders
Huge thanks to everyone who donated money for the makeover. We have completed the exterior work with the exception of the accessibility ramp, and are raising funds for the interior renovation.
Our goal is to provide long-term housing for two lesbian elders over 55!
Without Community, there is no progress! Please consider making a donation to help us complete the renovation.
