A capital campaign for a stronger Columbus.
Stonewall Builds is the capital campaign for the renovation and expansion of our current buildings in the Short North. Columbus has grown, and with it, so has Stonewall’s responsibility and role in the community. Renovation and expansion of our buildings will enable Stonewall to provide the community programs and support the community needs and deserves.
A Community of Leaders
For 41 years, Stonewall has believed that we, the LGBTQ+ community, deserve more visibility, inclusion and equality–and we believe this community of leaders is willing to do the hard work required to achieve those goals.
The Stonewall Builds capital campaign was led by members of the community who understand that a renovated and expanded center is key to Stonewall’s purpose and committed to raising the resources needed to achieve that goal–we hope you’ll join this community of leaders!
The victory of nationwide marriage equality has given Stonewall Columbus an exciting opportunity to expand our support of LGBTQ+ couples and families. In addition to being an ideal destination for LGBTQ+ weddings and receptions, the new Stonewall facility will offer services and activities for couples and families in our community.
Help create a center where couples and families can thrive.
Above all, Stonewall brings people together. Groups like our Transgender Social Group, Trailblazers (LGBTQ+ ages 50+), Coming Out Support Groups, and events like the PRIDE parade bring together people in our community. The new Stonewall facility will create more opportunity for us to grow together.
Help create an even stronger bond between the LGBTQ+ community and the city of Columbus.
With the help of Stonewall, Columbus is nationally recognized as a premier city for equality in the workforce. Stonewall Columbus has robust collaborations with The City of Columbus, American Electric Power (AEP), Abercrombie & Fitch, Cardinal Health, JPMorgan Chase, Huntington Bancshares, LBrands, Nationwide, and PNC, all which have earned high rankings on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index (CEI).
Help create a powerful link between our economic drivers and the LGBTQ+ workforce.
Stonewall provides help to so many people in our community. Veterans, families, college students, and seniors are just a few of the groups that can receive support at our facility. We offer health and HIV testing, counseling, recovery and support groups, and give special attention to those of low- to moderate-low income levels. This new facility will increase our capacity to help others.
Help us reach more people with programs and services that improve lives.
As Columbus has grown, so has Stonewall. And our ability to serve the community has outgrown our facility. The reorganized space will enhance our ability to host programming of all kinds, such as neighborhood and community meetings, informal gatherings, a community kitchen, health clinics, in-house counseling, theatre rehearsals, and so much more.
Help us build an even stronger future for Columbus and the LGBTQ+ community.
Be a Part of Our History
We invite you to join us in closing out the campaign the Center on High. With your help, we will welcome the community home to a landmark building that symbolizes a strong, sustainable future, and serves the Central Ohio LGBTQ+ community for generations to come.
THANK YOU for your commitment to our community!
