Become an American Friend of Stonewall

Stonewall is Britain's national charity for lesbian, gay and bisexual equality, with offices in England, Scotland and Wales. Our track record includes taking the British military to court to allow gay men and lesbians to openly serve in the armed forces without fear of being discharged, securing adoption rights for same-sex couples and winning civil partnership (with all the same rights and responsibilities as marriage) for same-sex couples. One of our largest projects is Education for All, addressing homophobia and homophobic bullying in schools across the UK.

As you work for similar rights in the US, you can point to our success on this side of the Atlantic! The New York Times and Fox News both reported on our collaborative work with the Royal Navy to recruit and retain gay men and lesbians.

Or perhaps you're living in the UK but still paying US income tax. If so, you can make a US tax-deductible donation to the American Fund for Charities, a US 501(c)(3) that supports Stonewall.

To join American Friends of Stonewall, we ask for a minimum annual donation of $90. In return we'll send you a Stonewall lapel pin to wear with pride, three newsletters and our annual report throughout the year to update you on our work in the UK.

You can join American Close Friends of Stonewall by giving a minimum donation of $350 per year. In addition to the benefits mentioned above, you'll be among the first to hear of Stonewall events. You can feel proud to know you're making a bigger contribution to global social change.

To ensure you receive your US tax deduction, please make your cheque payable to The American Fund for Charities, in US Dollars, and suggest that Stonewall be the beneficiary of your grant. Don't forget to use enough postage for international air mail to the UK!
