G.L.A.D. Mission Statement and Purpose


G.L.A.D. is a non-profit organization of diversified men and women that was established in 1987 with the joint purpose of bringing unity to the Gay & Lesbian community and to raise money for three local charities each season. Unity is gained by maintaining a spirit of fellowship, sportsmanship, and fun. The charities are nominated and elected by the membership. It is the hope of the G.L.A.D. organization that these contributions will enrich the lives of the recipients as well as our membership.


The G.L.A.D. organization is organized exclusively for charitable purposes, including for such purposes, the making of distributions to organizations that qualify as exempt organizations under 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code, or corresponding section of any future federal tax code.
