On Saturday night The San Diego LGBT Community Center (The Center) shared some exciting news at their 49th Anniversary Gala.

Thanks to the generosity of Ron Bowman, with his husband Stan Zukowfsky any donations given to The Center now through December 31 will get a 4:1 increase, bringing the possibility of a fundraising total up to $2 million.

That means if you contribute $30, your gift will earn a $120 match, yielding a $150 donation for The Center. Donating $50 means The Center receives $250. If you give $500, your gift will become $2500 and so on.

If The Center raises up to $400,000 by Dec. 31, 2017, Mr. Bowman and Mr. Zukowfsky will add up to $1.6 million dollars to our fundraising efforts.

This would net $2 million dollars in support for The Center's programs and services for the local LGBT community.

The donation match will have 71 days to meet its goal.

This is the single largest matching opportunity The Center has ever received.

You can contribute to the efforts by making an online donation HERE.

If you can give $35, $50, $100, or $500 - or become a monthly donor - your contribution will trigger a quadruple match and make an even greater difference to our community. #2M

The Center is located at 3909 Centre St., San Diego, 92103.
