You can either encourage your circle of friends and family members to make a direct donation to the William Way at or you can create a fundraising event on Facebook. The William Way LGBT Community Center is a 501-c-3 non-profit that operates its programs 365 days a year, normally at its location in Center City Philadelphia at 1315 Spruce Street. During the time of closure due to COVID-19, our center continues to operate our programs remotely (using Zoom conferences), as well as providing food and supplies to seniors through our elder programs at John C. Anderson Apartments and through our Mornings Out Program. One key function of the Center is renting space to community groups. We bring in $8,000 in income each month from these rentals. We have cancelled all rentals for the foreseeable future due to the health emergency. Thus we can expect to lose $24,000 in the next quarter alone. Our earned income through rentals and leases has been one of the key pillars of our annual budget. We request your support at this time to assist with the replacement of those funds. Please consider making a donation to William Way LGBT Community Center. Here’s how your donation can help: 1. $25 will help us continue to provide healthy and nutritious food to seniors 2. $50 Provides us with technology access so we can build online community groups 3. $500 We have continued to keep all of our staff employed.
