Scholarships require generosity. Year-round programming requires generosity. Fun and over the top events requires generosity. Gay & Sober is still young and can't raise funds like an ordinary Roundup. Most established Roundups and Conventions have a prudent reserve from prior years. We depend on registrations and community giving to meet our financial obligations. 

This is where we you come in...  



This can only happen with the help and support from within the recovery community and it's allies.

Without you, there would be no "us". 


We'd like to ask for your help in two ways: First, tell a friend! Enthusiasm is contagious and the more people that know - the better it will be for all. Secondly, we believe that when we give love, we get love. So whether it's a little or a lot please help support us with a donation of any amount by clicking here .

Extraordinary things like this undertaking require extraordinary donors. Just imagine witnessing hundreds of people in recovery from a once debilitating addiction - coming together and celebrating their new lives in sobriety. The joy of living is an amazing experience to not only see but to be a part of. For those of you "in the rooms", you already know what we are talking about. We'd like you to consider selecting from the amounts below. 


$50 - $100 - Friendship Patron Level

$250 - Bronze Patron Level

$500 - Silver Patron Level

$1,000 - Gold Patron Level

$5,000 - Platinum Patron Level

$10,000 - Diamond Patron Level

Every dollar counts and you are helping us turn this vision into a reality. This unique convention has the potential to help so many people. Your generosity will be helping us to help others to get and stay sober. Thank you in advance for your patronage. We are so grateful for your support. 

All contributions and donations are tax deductible.
