TurnOut's mission is to build connections between volunteers and nonprofits that foster stronger LGBTQ+ nonprofits, more effective LGBTQ+ programming, and more engaged LGBTQ+ communities.
If you sign up to volunteer at a Folsom event and select the Supporting Beneficiary TurnOut as your beneficiary, please refer any questions to Volunteer Coordinator Jack at firstname.lastname@example.org.
By conducting outreach to queer groups at high schools, colleges, and businesses for volunteer recruitment, TurnOut brings new people into the realm of queer community work. This helps raise the profile of queer nonprofits among potential volunteers and donors who may otherwise have remained unaware of their work.
By promoting volunteerism within queer community, TurnOut also supports the individual volunteers themselves. Research has shown that volunteering has great benefits for physical health (including managing chronic conditions), mental health, professional development, and social support – all areas where LGBTQ people face additional challenges.
