The Jon Sims Endowment Fund's "200,000 Endow-A-Thon” announced on November 7, 2014 at the LGBA conference in Ft. Lauderdale is off to a great start.


In just more than one month, the JSEF has engaged in discussions with multiple LGBA member organizations who are interested in preserving and protecting their long-term financial future. They are all very interesting in having up to $5,000 of newly endowed funds matched by JSEF. Also, the first 10 organizations who reach that target amount will be eligible to receive ANOTHER $1,000 in matched funds when they invest an additional $1,000.

So far, five LGBA member Bands have made the commitment to endow new funds with LGBA. Those five Bands are:
  • Philadelphia Freedom Band
  • Atlanta Freedom Bands
  • Mid America Freedom Band (Kansas City, MO)
  • San Francisco Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band
  • Rose City Gay Freedom Band (Portland, OR)

Don't let YOUR Band (or other LGBA member org) miss out on this big money opportunity. The offer expires December 31, 2015.
