To achieve equality for the LGBTQ+ community.
Cheer for Change. Cheer with Pride. Cheer New York!
NEW YORK SPIRIT FUND
Through our New York Spirit Fund, Cheer New York raises money for locally-based charities that advocate for equality for the LGBTQ+ community. Each year, our members select a new charity to be the recipient of the New York Spirit Fund. The team fundraises throughout the year before presenting this New York Spirit Fund Donation to our beneficiary.
In the past five years alone, Cheer New York has donated over $75,000 to supporting our local LGBTQ+ community. Funds are also raised to help Cheer New York continue to thrive in our role as certified 501(c)3 nonprofit team of all volunteer members.
Cheer New York is proud to support the Anti-Violence Project as the 2019 beneficiary of our New York Spirit Fund. The support they offer to LGBTQ+ and HIV-affected survivors of violence through counseling and advocacy, combined with their community outreach and educational programs, take crucial steps towards peaceful change within today’s cultural climate.
