Since its founding, SQSH has answered approximately 168 calls and has trained 39 Helpline Volunteers. Our generous supporters allow us to run our services completely free. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we need your support to continue the valuable community-building and mutual aid work that we do. Any gifts made to SQSH will be directly invested in supporting the St. Louis queer community. If you value the work we do, please consider a donation to keep SQSH going. Thank you!
Help SQSH Thrive Alongside Queer Community Across Missouri & Illinois!
We need your help to sustain SQSH's lifesaving services as we expand to provide LGBTQIA-affirming peer support across Missouri and Illinois. As a grassroots 501(c)(3) organization hard-hit by the pandemic, we saw our annual operating funding shrink by 75%, while our monthly call volume grew by 1200%. Your financial support today will allow us to restore our financial health and continue our work improving queer lives across the midwest.
We currently accept online donations through Venmo, PayPal, Cash App, and ActBlue. If you aren't able to use those platforms but still want to donate to SQSH, please email our Treasurer so we can try to work something out. We’re working on expanding our platforms to be able to receive donations through Zelle and more.
