Since we started our organization, the vision of The Coast Equality Council has been to open a community center for the LGBTQ+ community that will provide outreach and services to LGBTQ+ people, allies, families, and friends here on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The center would also be used to educate the public and the LGBTQ+ communities about needs, issues, and various aspects of our culture.  We are happy to announce that we will be starting the process of remodeling a building to make this vision a reality.


Part of the building remodel will involve building a privacy fence around the property of the building to create a safe space for all the community to use.  This will be a big project with costs for materials and labor.  Our Outreach Committee has created a fundraising contest that will not only help us reach this goal to build the fence, but will also offer a prize drawn from the names of everyone who makes a donation as a thank you.  


Everyone that donates to our Safe Space Fence Fundraiser in the amount of $5.00 or more will be entered to win a $50.00 gift certificate to Sipps bar in Gulfport Mississippi.  The deadline to donate will be June 30, 2020.  Our Outreach committee will draw the gift certificate winner on July 10, 2020 from the donors and it will be announced on Facebook that day.


Visit the link below to donate to our Safe Space Fence Fundraiser.  Leave the donation under "Community Center".  We thank you for your continuous support of Gulf Coast Equality Council.
