Celebration '21: A FABULOUS Virtual Affair!


For a fundraiser that was not promoted as a fundraiser, Gamma Mu Foundation achieved unexpected goals that were not really fundraising goals. The Foundation raised a grand total of $172,870 since March when the event first was promoted throughout social media and email blasts to members. 

Partygoers celebrated the Foundation's generous support throughout the LGBTQ+ community with live and video testimonials from scholarship and grant awardees.

At each of the four online parties hosted in three time zones, gathered friends across the U.S.A. provided updates about Life During COVID in their cities and communities and celebrated life as our nation gradually opened up after a year of lockdowns.

Celebration '21 renewed friendships, lauded the GMF's mission and purpose, and provided a much-needed outlet for fun and frolicking...all while supporting OUR community! 

Many thanks to these generous donors who have supported Celebration '21 (so far!)
