Support Us

Contributions to the Harriet Hancock LGBT Center are vital to sustaining our success. As the only LGBT community center in South Carolina, we rely on support from our community including monetary donations and volunteer time.

Volunteer Your Time

The Center relies on volunteers to keep our doors open thought the week. We are always looking for dedicated and responsible individuals who are willing to volunteer for several days or evenings each month to open the Center for drop-in hours and to answer calls to our Resource Hotline. Volunteers are always paired in groups of two or more per shift which are scheduled several weeks in advance.

We particularly need volunteers who are willing to help open the Center during weekdays and Saturdays. Visit our Calendar of Events for a current schedule of Center open hours. If you are interested in volunteering contact

The Harriet Hancock LGBT Center oversees a number of programs and services that are all volunteer-based. If you are interested in serving on a committee to help plan our programs and services, we welcome your involvement. To learn more about our various projects, check out our Programs & Services page.

As the only LGBT community center in South Carolina, we rely on support monetary and in-kind donations to keep our doors open. Donations to the Harriet Hancock Center Foundation are tax deductible.
