2nd Story is a completely non-government funded program that relies on generous people like you to help us support our nearly 350 members. No matter the size, every donation we receive provides our members with the events and activities they love, all at no cost to them. 2nd Story is one of the few organizations of it's kind in the country that does not require membership fees or activity charges. We are able to provide this kind of unique experience because of the generosity we have experienced over the last 40 years. Donate now to join a legacy of people working towards equality, acceptance and knowledge.
Sponsorship & Fundraising Events

Watch our newsletter to see when
the next one will be.
Celebrate 2nd Story
Celebrate 2nd Story is an exciting new chapter for us! This event is sponsored
by the Moose Lodge, and is our newest fundraiser. It is a themed gala event
that features silent auction, live auction, bingo and walk around raffles. With
dinner, drinks and good company, it's a night you won't want to miss. The
event takes place the first Saturday
in February each year.
The Community Drive Fundraiser is an annual mail solicitation program. We have been participating in this drive for many years. 2nd Story sends out letters to the public requesting funds to assure continuance of our club. Return envelopes are included with the letter. The mailer explains in detail the necessity of our club, and how important it is for our community.
You can honor or remember a loved one by making a donation in their name. Your donation will be used to continue the work done at 2nd Story in helping our members grow and thrive.
