We're running our first race to raise 5k! Now through the end of September, when you donate to The History Project your gift will go twice as far! Several generous donors have agreed to match all donations to The History Project in September, up to $5,000. That means that for every dollar you donate, another dollar will be donated. We need your help to ensure we receive the full amount!
The History Project: Documenting LGBTQ Boston is Boston's community archives. An all-volunteer organization created in 1980, The History Project serves the LGBTQ community by documenting, preserving, and sharing LGBTQ history. The funds raised via this match will be used to support a full year of events from our popular Out of the Archives series. Out of the Archives events are informal, interactive presentations featuring speakers discussing collections from The History Project’s archives.
Celebrating what THP does best, these events bring materials out of the archives so that the public can learn firsthand from our shared history. Our first Out of the Archives for the 2017-2018 season features Sarah Prager, award winning author of Queer, There, and Everywhere: 23 People Who Changed the World. We look forward to seeing you at an Out of the Archives event soon!
Innovative programs like Out of the Archives only exist with the support of the community. We hope we can count on you to help us meet this exciting challenge, earn our full match, and continue to share Boston’s LGBTQ history!
