AT&T Makes $1M Pride Month Gift To Trevor Project

Via press release from AT&T:

As we kick-off Pride Month, AT&T is proud to announce a $1 million donation and a multi-year partnership with The Trevor Project, the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ youth. Suicide is the second leading cause of death for youth aged 10 – 24, and LGBTQ youth are almost five times as likely to have attempted suicide compared to their heterosexual peers.

AT&T’s $1 million contribution is the single largest in The Trevor Project’s 20-year history. It will help modernize and transform The Trevor Project’s proven suicide prevention capabilities and help them serve four times as many LGBTQ youth via their digital platforms as previously possible. This means even more LGBTQ youth experiencing a crisis or contemplating self-harm will be able to reach trained and caring crisis counselors.

In addition to the $1 million contribution, AT&T will support the groundbreaking partnership with more than $675,000 worth of AT&T products and services as well as technology & connectivity expertise. AT&T will also recruit employee volunteers to further support the life-saving work of The Trevor Project.
