Charity Spotlight: The Trevor Project

To celebrate Pride Month all year long, TopCashback is proudly inviting its members to donate to The Trevor Project—the only accredited organization in the nation that offers 24/7 counseling and suicide prevention services to our LGBTQ youth.

You can contribute a portion or all your cash back earnings to the cause by following the step-by-step guide at the end of this post.

But first, let’s take some time to understand the need for The Trevor Project, and why it’s important to help fund its work.

What is it?

Launched in 1998, The Trevor Project is an American non-profit organization that’s geared toward preventing suicide among LGBTQ people ages 13-24. It employs trained crisis counselors who are available around the clock, 365 days a year, across the United States. They can be reached confidentially by phone, text or online chat. And their services are completely free.

The Trevor Project’s “TrevorSpace” is another cost-free way for struggling LGBTQ youth to connect and make friends with people who share similar experiences. It’s a moderated online community of over 400,000 members that listens, shows support and gives advice to anyone in need.

You can also check out the Resource Center for articles and guides that address many LGBTQ topics, such as mental health, gender identity and sexual orientation.

Why should I fund?

Not only does The Trevor Project provide 24/7 counseling, but it also advocates for governmental change that could decrease the risk of suicide in LGBTQ youth. Your donation will aid efforts in pressing for kinder, more inclusive laws. It will keep education and research atop of the Project’s priorities. And it will assist with the continuation of TrevorSpace and other life-saving tools.

In short, nothing, nothing the organization does can be done successfully without the collaboration of generous folks like you.
