2020 LEAGUE at AT&T Awards Dinner (LAAD) Sponsorship

The annual LEAGUE at AT&T Awards Dinner (LAAD) is going virtual! Since 2010, LAAD has recognized honorees for their passion and leadership in service to the LGBTQ+ community. While many of us continue to work remotely, this event is more important than ever as it is supporting the LEAGUE Foundation’s mission of fostering the future of our community through scholarship support and LEAGUE programs and events.

 Since 1996, LEAGUE Foundation has awarded 182 college scholarships totaling $386,500 to self-identified lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBTQ+) graduating U.S. high school students demonstrating academic achievement and significant community involvement. Check out the 2020 Scholarship recipients and help us fund future scholars.

 Now is the time to show your support.  Become a sponsor or donate, TODAY! The event underwriters provide crucial support to the LEAGUE Foundation’s scholarships and LEAGUE’s programs and events along with access to exclusive recognition opportunities to our 5,200+ person membership base.
