Thank you for all you do!

To all JASMYN friends, sponsors, supporters, alumni and volunteers:
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

2014 has been a year of remarkable growth, unexpected blessings and celebration as we commemorated our 20th year of serving LGBTQ youth. A whirlwind of activities, events, programs and services helped us positively impact the lives of teens and young adults more than ever before.
We can’t begin to thank you all for your trust and belief in JASMYN and its place in the Jacksonville community. We have been thrilled to raise more funds from more people than ever before in our history. We have received important grants that have allowed us to expand HIV testing programs, provide additional support to GSA’s (Gay-Straight Alliances) in Duval County schools and underwrite a fund development position and strategic planning process. We’ve had greater and broader sponsor support a

nd volunteer engagement has never been as extensive and committed as it was this year.
Most notably, we were incredibly fortunate to receive a gift of the building and property next door to the current JASMYN House. Once renovations are completed by the end of the year, we will have the additional space we desperately need to accommodate our growing staff, expanding services and youth activities.
Words can’t begin to express our appreciation to you all. You eagerly pitched in to help at every turn, in so many ways. In this, our 20th year, you really showed up for us and our youth–especially last week when we held our 20th Anniversary Celebration with 300+ of you at the Cummer Museum and Gardens. We will be forever grateful.
From everyone at JASMYN, we wish you and your families a safe and Happy Thanksgiving. We hope your holiday season is filled with peace, joy, love and equality for all.
