Liberty Circle: Major Donor Leadership

Find Your State

Know the laws in your state that protect LBGT people and people living with HIV.


The Liberty Circle is a select group of people who have made significant personal commitments to Lambda Legal and the fight for equality. Members of the Liberty Circle are essential partners in our work. Their exemplary commitment maintains the financial viability of the organization. From our early antidiscrimination litigation to our landmark Supreme Court victories, including Lawrence v. Texas, Liberty Circle members have been instrumental in helping Lambda Legal make the case for equality and defend the rights of LGBT people and those with HIV.

With an annual giving level of $1,500 or more, Liberty Circle members are recognized in Lambda Legal’s Annual Report, receive a special members-only pin, tickets to a select metro-chapter event in their region and are asked to participate in the Executive Director’s annual State of Equality Address via teleconference.

Gifts can be made in single or monthly installments and are tax-deductible to the furthest extent of the law.
