04 – Give Support

There are many ways to contribute to the mission of OurPath—from small acts like purchasing through our Amazon Smile account, to donating your car or your engagement ring, to cash donations of any size, to volunteering to become a Support Contact, staff member, or board member. We look forward to engaging with you to make OurPath stronger, and to help support more Straight Partners as they find their path to a new normal.

donation is

OurPath depends on donations to fund our work of supporting people who contact us each year (over 1,600 in 2020), often shortly after they discover their spouse or partner is LGBT+. We provide help and resources for men and women all over the world through our network of dedicated, compassionate volunteers. This support is offered free of charge. Every time we receive a request, our volunteers respond quickly and personally to ensure that no one feels alone as they navigate the experience of discovery or disclosure.

OurPath is a 501(c)(3) organization. All donations are tax-deductible (please consult your tax professional).

Our Volunteer Force is the backbone of our organization – we couldn’t do what we do without them. The number of support requests we receive each month is growing, and we need to build our volunteer base to make sure every Straight Partner who contacts us has the support and resources they need. The gifts of time and attention are invaluable. If you are well along on your own path, consider becoming a Support Contact today.

The OurPath Board of Directors is a working board that ensures alignment between the organization’s mission, purpose, and activities. The board also provides oversight of those activities and plays a role in procuring adequate resources for them. It provides financial oversight, selects the Executive Director, ensures effective organizational planning, and creates by-laws, policies, procedures, guidelines and norms for organizational operations. The board meets once a month and more often when necessary.
