The Center: 7 Rivers LGBTQ Connection is a non-profit serving 11 “river” counties in western Wisconsin, northern Iowa and southeastern Minnesota. The center, run mostly by volunteers, strives to make the world a better place for LGBTQ people and their allies. Their efforts are focused on advocacy, programming, and outreach.

The grant awarded to the Brightening the Rainbow: Training Center Staff program will help to provide training for current staff so that they may develop their skills in nonprofit management, fundraising, and program development to continue to grow The Center and meet the needs of our communities. The Center provides services that impact the lives of its members and the greater community including providing Safe Space, training and education, hosting support groups and social events, engaging in advocacy work, and other services.

Thank you for the important work you do in our communities!
