American Foundation for Equal Rights

Ways to Give

In 37 states, gay and lesbian Americans are denied the right to marry and equal protection under the law. American Foundation for Equal Rights seeks to ensure that every American has the equal rights they deserve.

Support the Case

Help realize the dreams of so many couples wanting to get married. Your tax-deductible donation will support our work to win the freedom to marry for every American.

Corporate Employer Matching Gifts

With an employer matching gift, your contribution could double or even triple! Many companies offer programs that match charitable contributions made by their employees. Please check with your personnel department to see if your company has a matching gift policy. Most programs are accessible online and convenient to participate in.

Gift in Honor or Tribute

Honor your friend, family or colleague with a special gift donation in their name.

Register Your Wedding

It’s a special time for every couple. But not everyone has the freedom to legally marry. Help make marriage a reality for gay and lesbian Americans.
Register your wedding and encourage your guests to give a donation in honor of your special day. Email melissa@afer.org for more information.
