The Stonewall Swim August 21st

On August 21,
fifty (50) LGBT athletes
will take a daring plunge into
 the Great South Bay.

They will swim from Sayville to the Fire Island Pines (approximately 3.5 miles!) to raise money for the Stonewall Community Foundation .  These disciplined athletes have been training for months and your support is needed!

Stonewall was begun as a collection of advised-funds and endowments by like-minded donors concerned about creating a vibrant and healthy lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. Today, Stonewall is a full service community foundation seeking the participation of everyone interested in bettering our community.

Since 1990, the foundation has distributed more than $14 million in grants. Grantmaking from Stonewall’s general fund concentrates on the needs of organizations in the five boroughs of New York, while Donor-advised funds support a variety of organizations locally and throughout the country.

Stonewall supporters envision a community of shared resources where donors, funders and organizations work together, joined by a commitment to strengthen one another. Stonewall is dedicated to increasing charitable giving within the community today while building a strong endowment for tomorrow.
