The Guilford Green Foundation grows and maintains its connections to the community in several ways, but a big one is hosting a variety of events with wide appeal. We put on several major fundraisers throughout the year to support the organization and its Grant Program, but we also host several purely social events.

2019 Gala & Green Party
March 23 @ 7:00 pm - March 24 @ 7:00 pm$175
We are returning to the formal sit-down dinner format with a special guest speaker for the 2019 Gala, followed by the Green Party hosted by Jessica Mashburn and Evan Olson.
Dinner will feature guest speaker Sarah McBride, a progressive activist and the National Press Secretary at the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest LGBTQ civil rights organization.
Sarah made national headlines in 2011 when she came out as transgender to her college while serving as student body president at American University. In 2016, she made history when she became the first openly transgender person to address a major party convention.
Her book Tomorrow Will Be Different chronicles her journey as a transgender woman, from coming out to her family and school community, to fighting for equality in her home state and nationally, to her heartbreaking romance with her late husband.
We are looking for businesses or individuals who would like to provide financial or in-kind support for the Gala. Please contact us at email@example.com if you are interested in a sponsorship.
