OUT FOR GOOD

The GLFD is proud to announce their 2022 community programming called "Out For Good". 

Together with our dedicated, compassionate volunteers, Out for Good creates a unique opportunity for volunteers who believe in the greater good for our community and beyond.

 

Throughout the year we will post volunteer activities to sign-up for to benefit a specific sector of the community at large.  We will show up en-masse and show the community through volunteerism that we are “OUT for GOOD.”

All organizations that Out for Good Supports will need to meet certain criteria that include having an antidiscrimination policy that specifically includes the LGBTQ+ provisions in their services and their hiring practices.

While GLFD financially supports organizations in our greater community—Out for good is intended to show that LGBTQ+ people and their allies do not just support the sub-culture but support the culture of the Greater Dallas area through their actions.
