“Stronger Together With Justice for All”

Event to Launch Community Phase of the Growing Together Initiative

SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA- On Saturday, October 23 from 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm, the Growing Together Fund Advisory Committee invites the public to help launch the Community Phase of their Endowment Campaign. The event will be held at the Jack House Gardens at 536 Marsh Street and includes catered hors d’oeuvres and wine, presentations about the impact of the Growing Together Fund on the community, and a drawing for a gift basket celebrating local pride.

The Growing Together Initiative is dedicated to supporting the needs of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans-gendered community, to raise general awareness, and to fight discrimination. Currently, the Community Foundation is undertaking a targeted major gifts campaign to build the endowment as a permanent source of grant-making funds to support local needs. To date, the Fund has secured commitments of $214,000 from major donors and aims raise another $50,000 through the support of the community. For more information or to RSVP to the event, contact Kim at 543-2323 or kim@sloccf.org.

The San Luis Obispo County Community Foundation (SLOCCF) established the Growing Together Initiative in 2001 in response to continuing reports of the violation of civil rights, discrimination and violence against members of the LGBT community.
