HOW WE DO IT...
The Gay Games and its international Federation exist to serve the needs of athletes, artists, and advocates. The mission is to promote equality for all, and in particular for LGBTQ+ people throughout the world.
These athletes, artists, and advocates unite every four years for an event that has literally changed the world. Participating in the Gay Games has been a life-changing experience for thousands from all walks of life. Thanks to some robust fundraising and a generous scholarship program, hundreds from highly underserved countries and communities have been brought to the Gay Games to witness “Participation, Inclusion, and Personal Best ™” first-hand and see the collective power of those values.
As the world’s largest sports and cultural event open to all, the Gay Games have created and nurtured a movement that has become among the greatest forces for community empowerment and social change.
Donation goal FOR Gay Games 11
The donations of many generous individuals helped the Federation of Gay Games "Change the World" by sending athletes and artists from all over the world to Paris 2018 - Gay Games 10. Fundraising efforts have now been reset to focus on scholarships to Gay Games 11 in Hong Kong (November, 2023). Please donate now. This continues a plan begun in 1982 to provide a life-changing experience to underserved individuals.
"MY GAY GAMES STORY"
Since 1986, The Federation of Gay Games Scholarship Fund, through your donations, has awarded more than 1,000 scholarships to underfunded LGBTQ+ individuals from 70 countries around the world, where the daily struggle for equality is harsh and often dangerous, to experience “participation, inclusion and personal best™" first-hand and see the collective power of those values.
DONATIONS NEEDED MORE NOW THAN EVER
We continue sharing our series of powerful personal stories this holiday season from scholarship recipients and participants who have been positively and profoundly affected by support received through the Federation of Gay Games. As the 40th Anniversary of the Gay Games nears, the need for donations to help scholarship applicants is greater than ever.
Please consider the life-changing impact your tax-deductible donation will make for deserving artists and athletes from around the world.
