LGBT Philanthropic Support
Philanthropic activities in the form of cash grants or in-kind donations of products or services may include contributions to such causes as LGBT health, education or political organizations or projects.
These gifts typically have a strategic long-term approach to a business' bottom line either through funding a specific programmatic effort or to an LGBT organization closely aligned to the business' particular industry. For example, official sponsors of the International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association include a wide array of airlines, travel and car rental operators, hotels and tourism associations. Supporters of oSTEM and NOGLSTP -- engineering, science, math and technology student and professional organizations -- have come from the technology industry.
