Perceptions can not run without you! Perceptions’ many programs, projects, and events can only continue with your strong financial support. We ask you consider donating to help make us successful. We are a 501c(3) charitable organization; so donations are tax deductible. Perceptions funds support the LGBT and Ally community in the Great Lakes Bay Region.

An easy way to support Perceptions is by joining your company’s United Way Campaign and taking advantage of payroll deduction or other contribution options. The United Way will collect and forward your contributions on either a quarterly or annual basis, keeping only a handling fee for its efforts.
