Rights of Passage Receives Its First Grant
For nearly a year now we have been supporting the research and development of Rights of Passage out of pocket and with small gifts from devoted friends and family. We are very grateful for their generosity and faith in the project.
Today we are happy to share the good news of our very first grant for Rights of Passage from The Small Change Foundation in San Francisco. This $15,000 gift comes via the philanthropic giving of James Hormel http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Hormel who has been continually active in the lesbian and gay community. A former US Ambassador to Luxembourg, Mr. Hormel is a staunch advocate of human rights and a founder of the Human Rights Campaign. Our thanks for his contribution and his ongoing support of international LGBT human rights. This generous donation will enable us to continue with the research and development of the play.
