In any given year our annual operating budget is supplemented by donations from individuals, corporations, community groups and proceeds from special events. These critical dollars primarily fund our education and prevention services, allowing us to take our safer sex and other prevention messages directly to the most vulnerable communities.
Here are several ways you can make a difference in the life of someone living with, or at risk for HIV today.
