Support GLAAD: Sponsorship
Sponsor an Event
GLAAD's annual events receive support from more than 100 corporations and foundations, primarily through our four GLAAD Media Awards events. GLAAD's event corporate partnership opportunities include:
GLAAD Media Awards
The GLAAD Media Awards recognizes and honors news and entertainment media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community and the issues that affect our lives. The GLAAD Media Awards are held in Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco in the spring. More than 150 media outlets cover the events which are attended by over 5,000 guests. Corporate partnership levels start at $5,000.

These social events afford guests the opportunity to learn more about GLAAD's work in an intimate environment. Sponsorship levels start at $5,000.

Snapshot of Our Work
The Boy Scouts of America ended its ban on gay Scouts following GLAAD's yearlong campaign to bring equality to Scouting. GLAAD first started calls for the Boy Scouts of America to end its ban on gay Scouts and Scout leaders in April 2012 after Jennifer Tyrrell, a mom and den leader from Ohio was removed from her 7-year-old’s Cub Scout pack for being gay. Since then and with GLAAD's support, more than 1.8 million signatures have been collected through Change.org calling for an end to the Boy Scouts' ban on gay members. GLAAD is continuing its call for the Boy Scouts to end its ban on gay parents and leaders. More at glaad.org/scouts
