Due to the impact of COVID-19, our Ethnic & Gender campus locations are closed until further notice. Our staff is working remotely and available to support you along your Highlander journey. We look forward to being back on campus and supporting you in-person. Please continue to wash your hands, wear a face covering, and maintain physical distance.

LGBTRC - Giving Back and Donations

Giving Back Matters

Our vital scholarships, grants, programs and services all work together to bolster our students and community. Keep that positive impact going by giving back. There are countless ways to contribute. Donate a book or DVD to our lending library through our Amazon Wish List. Make a tax-deductible donation to a leadership, grant or program fund. Give your time by attending our annual Lambda Celebration or serving as a guest speaker. Giving back to the LGBT Resource Center is convenient, appreciated and truly changes lives.

    Scholarships from this fund are awarded to UCR undergraduate and graduate students based on academic achievement, personal merit, exceptional student leadership and contributions to the LGBTQIA community. UCR students of any sexual orientation or gender identity are eligible to receive funds.

    We have  reached our endowment goal of $25,000 through the "Nancy Wears a Dress" and "Andy Wears a Dress" fundraisers, plus proceeds from Queer Alliance's annual Dragalicious Drag Ball. However, your continued support will help grow the number of scholarships we can award.

  • Lambda Celebration

    Each June, we present our Lambda Awards at our annual Lambda Celebration. For more than twelve years it has been our chance to pay tribute to the individuals and organizations that have made outstanding contributions to our LGBT community.

    The UCR community and alums are invited to attend, and we would love to see you there. The catered, celebratory evening also features a keynote speaker. If you are a UCR alumnus interested in volunteering as a speaker, please contact us.


Thank You
