Funds for Affirmation Conference Scholarships
We believe it is essential to support emotional health and connection of Mormon LGBTQ youth, adults, and their friends and families. In order to help LGBTQ members that do not have financial means to attend LGBTQ Mormon conferences we do an annual rally of funds.
2016 – We raised 8k to support the International Affirmation Conference Scholarship. This provided funding for 32 partial scholarships for LGBTQ Mormons and allowed Affirmation to offer a full scholarships that included flight, housing and/ or full conference tuition. This full scholarship was focused on trans, women, youth, and people of color allowing 22 additional LGBTQ Mormons to attend.
2015 – We raised 7k to support the International Affirmation Conference Scholarship. This provided funding for 50 partial scholarships for LGBTQ Mormons.
