How you can support OutCasting:
We are actively seeking underwriters (businesses and nonprofit organizations) and Founding Supporters — people, businesses, foundations, and anyone else who wants to support LGBTQ youth and allies and their involvement with OutCasting through tax-deductible donations of any amount — and particularly large donations of $10,000 and above.
New board members: We are also looking for highly qualified people to join MFPG's Board of Directors. Qualified applicants should have previous non-profit board experience and a strong and supportive interest in LGBTQ issues.
If you are potential major donor or board applicant, please contact us.
OutCasting provides a unique opportunity for LGBTQ youth and their allies, empowering them and giving them a voice that they would not have otherwise. LGBTQ youth are often at risk — sometimes in unstable family situations because of their identity; sometimes in physical danger in school and elsewhere; and statistically at higher risk of suicide. They often lack the information and resources that enable them to protect themselves, and and it's essential to provide support and nurturing for them in a safe environment.
As a participatory activity, OutCasting also provides its young producers with training, education, and experience in the real-world environment of producing a nationally distributed public radio program.
As a public radio program, OutCasting provides information and perspective to listeners all over the country. Because it is aimed at — and heard by — not only the LGBTQ audience but a broad spectrum of the general public, it can help create a more stable and accepting environment for LGBTQ people by shedding light on issues that are unfortunately still divisive.
And by presenting in-depth exploration of LGBTQ issues, it also helps LGBTQ youth — listeners and participants alike — envision a positive future for themselves.
If you're interested in showing your support of the LGBTQ community by empowering its young members, please have a look at the the Join OutCasting page to see what youth participants are saying about the show. Then, if you like what you see, call us at (914) 674-0900 Ext. 58 or send us an e-mail.
