Sponsors

 

Thank you!

 

The sponsors of Equality Illinois make possible our work securing, protecting and defending equal rights for LGBT Illinoisans. We thank you and them for the support.

If you have not joined the thousands of Illinoisans, businesses and institutions who believe in our mission, please DONATE HERE. Those with general questions about contributions can email us here.  If you would like to give an in-kind donation, such as for the silent auction at our annual gala, please email our Development Department.

Again, THANK YOU!
