Although membership dues support the NOGLSTP Bulletin and a very modest outreach program, we depend on additional donations to support some of our current program goals:
- Support Out to Innnovate™, our biennial cross-generational summit for LGBTQ+ people in STEM.
- Support our scholarship fund for LGBTQ+ students in STEM.
- Host a reception at each of the annual meetings of AAAS, ACS, FACEB, IEEE, SWE, and SACNAS.
- Support our Recognition Awards program.
- Support our mentoring program for LGBTQ+ science/engineering students.
- Fund outreach supplies and NOGLSTP representative travel to Out and Equal conferences, E-Week Diversity Council meetings, and NOGLSTP-sponsored symposia, receptions and outreach events.
- Fund start-up expenses for local NOGLSTP affiliates (regional groups and caucuses).

Donate stock and you won’t have to pay capital gains taxes on the profits, and the full value of the stock can be deducted as a charitable donation. Instruct your broker to transfer the stock to National Organization of Gay and Lesbian Scientists and Technical Professionals, Inc., Charles Schwab & Co account #6160-9599, DTC # 0164. Contact the NOGLSTP Treasurer for further information.
