The SMYAL Major Donor Club launched in the spring of 2018 as a home for leadership donors, like you, to directly fund and impact SMYAL’s expanding programs that work to support and empower lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth in the Washington, DC, metro region. Club members want to know more, be on the inside, be of service, and represent SMYAL in the community while knowing their leadership contributions are going entirely to help LGBTQ youth in the community.
