LGBTI equality and human rights in Europe and Central Asia

Hold an event for LGBTI equality

Whether running a marathon, throwing a party or organising a bake sale at your office, the team at ILGA-Europe are here to support your amazing fundraising efforts. 

Every cent raised will be used towards reaching our vision of a world where LGBTI people can live in freedom and equality.

Europe’s overall score in achieved LGBTI rights is a shocking 38%. You can help us change that. 

We’ve listed some great fundraising ideas below. Inspired to get involved? Get in touch with our partnerships manager Anna Shepherd – she’d love to hear about your idea and support you all the way.

Sponsored run

Sign up to a run, walk or cycle and ask friends, colleagues and family to sponsor you! Run the 20 km of Brussels or sign up for a sporting event in your local area , and raise both vital funds and awareness for LGBTI rights. 



More of a party animal than a marathon runner? No problem! Throw a party or host a dinner at home or a community venue, and ask your guests to make a donation for LGBTI rights.

Bake sale

Bring in your bakes (or shop-bought treats..) to work and ask colleagues for a donation for LGBTI rights in exchange for a sweet treat with their morning coffee.

Matched funding

Many companies match any donations their employees make to charitable causes. ILGA-Europe are registered with Benevity, the leading workplace giving platform. Ask your manager or HR whether your company can double your donation!
