Donate 1,000 Virgin Points to LGBT Foundation and Stonewall

LGBT Foundation

Established in 1975, LGBT Foundation exists to support the needs of the diverse range of people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans. 

Each year, LGBT Foundation serve over 40,000 people, as well as providing information to over 600,000 individuals online.

LGBT Foundation believes that by working together, we can change lives for the better and secure a safe and healthy future for everyone who identifies as LGBT. This foundation helps the LGBT community increase their knowledge and self-confidence to improve and maintain their health and wellbeing.


Stonewall is part of a vibrant global movement for change made up of LGBTQ+ people, their allies, families, and friends. Since day one the charity has fought for freedom, for equity and for potential.

Over the last 30 years, Stonewall has helped create transformative change in the lives of LGBTQ+ people in the UK. 

Stonewall works on many important initiatives within education, business, and government. This helps the charity to facilitate trained experts to go into workplaces and give people the knowledge, skills, and confidence to champion trans inclusion at work. Stonewall also supports staffing teams working on new research, aimed at governments, highlighting that LGBTQ+ people still need more support in multiple areas including housing, healthcare and hate crime.

Where will your donations go?

The LGBT Foundation provides over 500 hours of support and services every day. Your donations will go towards providing the services that help LGBTQ+ people to increase their knowledge, improve their confidence, and improve and maintain their health and well-being.  

Donating to Stonewall could contribute to funding e-learning modules for schools and colleges to show staff how to tackle LGBTQ-phobic bullying without exception. Donations can also go towards costs for Stonewall staff members to meet with MPs, institutions, and other stakeholders to lobby them around crucial legislation, like banning conversion therapy. 

Donate in increments of 1,000 Virgin Points today to Stonewall, LGBT Foundation, or both, and Virgin Red will match the cash value of these donations at the end of Pride month at a not for profit rate, up to 200,000 Virgin Points. Virgin Red also has pin badges, lanyards and socks available for members to purchase with their Virgin Points.
