MEMBERSHIP & DONATIONS
WHY MAKE A DONATION?
PFLAG Austin offers 4 free support groups to Austin, Texas area parents, families, and friends of LGBTQ people. Whether it is a family in distress because a member just came out, a coworker announcing a gender transition, or someone who has questions, PFLAG Austin is there for you. We educate the community through outreach at public events such as PRIDE and LGBTQ related events. We encourage acceptance in schools. We make our voices heard to politicians in the city and state capitol.
To continue with our non-profit mission we need your support. PFLAG Austin is an officially IRS recognized non-profit group and all of our Austin staff are volunteers. We offer many ways for you to donate.

PFLAG Austin is signed up with the PayPal Giving Fund for non-profits. Using the link below to make a contribution of any amount and we receive the full amount of your contributions. Normally, PayPal charges us a transaction fee of 2.2% but with this program they waive that fee. That means we can put your full gift amount to use. You can provide your name or you can be anonymous. Either way, PayPal will provide you with an receipt instantly for tax purposes. The funds are disbursed to us once a month by PayPal so we are not able to look up donations until PayPal disburses them us. Anonymous donations are shown to us as anonymous with only the payment amount shown.
SELL YOUR UNNEEDED ITEMS ON EBAY AND HELP PFLAG AUSTIN
If you have some items laying around the house or from an estate you can help out PFLAG Austin. We are an Ebay registered charity and selling the items on Ebay using this link allows you to designate a percentage of the sale to go directly to us. You get to choose the percentage amount (from 10% to 100%). So it's a win-win: You sell items you no longer need and a percentage of your choice will be sent to benefit PFLAG Austin!
HELP PFLAG AUSTIN WHILE YOU SHOP ON AMAZON
PFLAG Austin gets a few hundred dollars per year just by people using this link to make their purchases on Amazon. On Amazon we are a certified charity and we receive 0.5% donation from Amazon of the sale on most items through their "SMILE" program. If you own a business and order your supplies from Amazon it could really make a big difference to us. Best of all, it doesn't cost you anything extra and works whether you have a standard Amazon account or the Prime account. So please bookmark this link and make it the link you use when you shop. Your login credentials stay the same and we NEVER see your name, items, payment or purchase information or even who uses the link. All we see is a periodic deposit from Amazon into our bank account.
