A Critical Week

We have less than four weeks left in the year to raise $100,000 online in order to raise our budget and take full advantage of the matching gift opportunity made available by a group of generous donors. This is a critical week for us — we need to raise $15,000 to stay on track.

Let's all do our part to hit our $15,000 target this week.

ALL GIFTS ARE MATCHED!


I'm in for $10, which will be doubled to $20


I'm in for $15, which will be doubled to $30


I'm in for $25, which will be doubled to $50


I'm in for $35, which will be doubled to $70


I'm in for $50, which will be doubled to $100


I'm in for $100, which will be doubled to $200


I'm in for more, which will be doubled!

I can't emphasize enough how important this online fundraising campaign is to our work. NOM normally receives over half our budget between Thanksgiving and New Year's, so it would be catastrophic for us if we fail to reach our goal. Everything we are fighting for — marriage, the truth of gender, religious liberty, protecting our kids in school — depends on our success in the month of December.

I know that I can count on you. It is critical that we hit our goal of $15,000 for this week so we can stay on track toward raising our budget.

Faithfully,

It is make or break time



We have just four weeks left in the year to hit our budget, and we are way behind.

We made a big push this week in connection with #GivingTuesday and raised $7,566.00. We are very grateful for those who responded, but we are nowhere close to where we need to be at this point.

Everything that we fight for — marriage, gender, religious liberty – depends on our success in the month of December. We need to raise over half of our online budget this month or we will be in big trouble.

Because of this, a group of donors has banded together to match every contribution we raise, dollar for dollar, up to $100,000.

I know that I can count on you. Let's get this done together and raise $100,000 online this month!

ALL GIFTS ARE MATCHED!

Match my $10

Match my $15

Match my $25

Match my $35

Match my $50

Match my $100

I'm in for more – match that!

I wouldn't ask for your help unless it was essential. The fact that we're behind is deadly serious.

We have so many opportunities ahead of us next year. We must refill the cupboards now so we can take advantage of every opportunity.

Faithfully,

NOM Needs Your Support this 'Giving Tuesday'



Today has been designated "Giving Tuesday" as part of a nationwide effort to encourage citizens to support nonprofit organizations who pursue important missions and ministries. NOM needs your support this day to boost our work in support of marriage, religious liberty and the truth of gender.

Show your support on this "Giving Tuesday"

Will you please take a moment and make a financial contribution of whatever you can afford — $15, $25, $50, $100, $250 or $500 or more — to support our important educational and grassroots advocacy activities?

When you make a contribution to us as part of Giving Tuesday, your contribution will be doubled thanks to a matching gift opportunity made available by a group of donors. That is a tremendous blessing, and a great opportunity for NOM at a critical time.

The matching gift campaign was launched a few weeks ago, and many people have responded. But we are considerably far behind where we need to be.

That's why I am urgently asking you to make a financial contribution today of $15, $25, $50, $100, or whatever you can afford. Your gift will be immediately matched, doubling its effectiveness.

The period between Thanksgiving and New Year Day is, by far, the most important time of year for NOM. We normally raise as much as 40 percent of our budget during these last few weeks of the year.

That's why I am so concerned that we've fallen behind. Please help us get back on track this Giving Tuesday with your gift of $15, $25, $50, $100, $250 or $500 or more, which will double in size thanks to the matching gift opportunity.

Thank you for your support of NOM, and our work in support of marriage, religious liberty and the truth of gender.

Faithfully,

Brian S Brown

We are Thankful



As we celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday with family today, we want to share with you many of the things for which we are thankful this year.

We're thankful for our families, especially our spouse, children and grandchildren, and grateful to God for blessing us with their lives.

We're thankful for our faith, and for the opportunity we have to speak and live out our beliefs in our daily lives.

We're thankful for our nation – for those who have come before us and fought for our values, many paying the ultimate price; for those who continue to serve in defense of our nation in the military, law enforcement and first responders; for those who serve in government including our elected officials, and we pray that they will remain true to the constitution and be open to correction when they err; and we are thankful to all Americans, especially those who are engaged and vote, and we pray they will continue to be active participants in our democracy and civic life.

And we at NOM are especially thankful for you, our supporters, who have sustained us with your prayers, encouragement, engagement and financial support. You are fighting the good fight; you are running the good race. And you are making a difference.

We pray that you have a restful, healthful, enjoyable and relaxing holiday with your family and loved ones. May God richly bless you on this day, and always.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Faithfully,

Brian S Brown

Your contribution will be doubled



NOM has an amazing opportunity thanks to a group of generous supporters: every contribution we receive will be matched dollar for dollar up to a total of $100,000.

What a gift! Please act today with a generous contribution which will be immediately matched, doubling the effectiveness of your gift.

Double the impact of your donation today!

I can't tell you what it would mean to us right now to have $200,000 available — $100,000 from supporters like you and an equal amount because of the match. This funding would allow us to immediately gear up to take advantage of many of the opportunities we have available:

  • Enacting the First Amendment Defense Act
  • Confirming a Supreme Court justice in the mold of Antonin Scalia
  • Derailing the Obama administration's dangerous “gender identity” agenda
  • Moving forward with educational materials needed to set the stage for the future reversal of Obergefell, the illegitimate decision redefining marriage

But for us to accomplish this work, we need your help. Will you consider making a contribution of $25, $50, $75, $100, $250 or even $500 or more which will be doubled thanks to this amazing matching gift opportunity?

NOM has never been in a greater position to influence public policy and make a difference for the American people. But doing so won't be easy. It will take all of us working together.

I'm in for $25, which will be matched, doubling to $50

I'm in for $50, which will be matched, doubling to $100

I'm in for $75, which will be matched, doubling to $150

I'm in for $100, which will be matched, doubling to $200

I'm in for $250, which will be matched, doubling to $500

I'm in for $500, which will be matched, doubling to $1,000

I'm in for more

We can do this!

Help NOM Make America Great Again

Friday, November 18, 2016

With the election of Donald Trump, the political structure has been turned upside down. The powerful and the politically correct have been upended, and the grassroots and the common man and woman have been elevated. Many things seemingly impossible just a few weeks ago are now suddenly possible.

NOM can play a powerful role in helping make America great again by mobilizing our supporters, expanding our coalition and serving as a voice for the truth of traditional moral values. You see, to a very large degree, making American great again means making American families strong again. It means promoting the truth of marriage. It means helping ensure that children receive the love of their mother and father. It means that the truth of gender be respected, and promoted, not ignored and redefined. It means that religious liberty and the faith-principles that undergird our constitution be restored.

But for us to succeed, we need your help. That's why I am asking you to make a financial contribution to ensure that our work can not only continue, but expand to meet the opportunities and challenges we now face. Will you consider making a contribution of $25, $50, $75, $100, $250 or even $500 or more?

If you will contribute to our success, I've got some great news. A group of supporters has come together to match every contribution that NOM receives through the end of the year, dollar for dollar, up to a total of $100,000.

What a great blessing, and the timing couldn't be better! Please act today with a generous contribution which will be immediately matched, doubling the effectiveness of your gift.

Donate Today!

To be successful, NOM must do three things:

  • First, we must speak the truth about issues that impact American families regardless of what the powerful, the elite, the new Trump administration or the media think. We must stand for marriage, religious liberty, children and parental rights, and the truth of gender day in and day out regardless of what the prevailing culture says.
  • Second, we must work with the new administration and Congress to encourage them to pursue sound policies – such as the First Amendment Defense Act – and make sound appointments – most importantly to the US Supreme Court – that are in the best interests of American families.
  • And third, NOM must be willing to hold President Trump accountable for mistakes he makes or poor nominations he may put forward.

The other day NOM took the President-Elect on for his mistaken view that the US Supreme Court's illegitimate, anti-constitutional ruling redefining marriage is somehow "settled law." Mr. Trump is dead wrong – the Obergefell decision is not settled law, and our #notsettled campaign is making that point clear.

We don't relish opposing the Trump administration so early in its formation, but we also cannot sit idly by and allow them to misconstrue such an important issue.

Furthermore, the reality is that President-Elect Trump's personal opinion about the marriage ruling pales in comparison to the views of the future Supreme Court nominees he puts forward. Mr. Trump says that Roe should be overturned (we wholeheartedly agree), and the reality is that any justice he appoints who is willing to overturn Roe will also overturn the Obergefell marriage decision because, like Roe, that ruling utterly lacks any constitutional basis.

As you can see, NOM has never had a greater opportunity to influence public policy and make a difference for the American people. But doing so won't be easy. It will take a firm commitment to truth and principle; it will take courage and guts to take on the powerful; and it will take finances to fuel the effort. We need your help now more than ever.

I'm in for $25, which will be matched, doubling to $50

I'm in for $50, which will be matched, doubling to $100

I'm in for $75, which will be matched, doubling to $150

I'm in for $100, which will be matched, doubling to $200

I'm in for $250, which will be matched, doubling to $500

I'm in for more

With great opportunities comes great challenges. We're prepared to put the full resources of our organization behind pushing for nominees to the Supreme Court who are in the mold of Antonin Scalia, to fight for the confirmation of qualified appointees to federal positions who reflect our values, and to advocate for policies that will improve the nation, including those on marriage, gender and religious liberty. But we're also prepared to spare no effort or expense to oppose policies and appointments that run counter to the best interests of the nation.

We're in for an amazing experience. It won't be easy, but nothing worth doing ever is easy. Please stand with us today by making an urgently-needed financial contribution so that we have the resources we need to be successful. Together, we can help make America great again by helping make American families strong again.

Faithfully,

Brian S Brown

PS – We are so grateful to the group of donors who have stepped forward to offer to match any contribution we receive through the end of the year. Please take advantage of this incredible opportunity by making a generous contribution today. Thank you.

you're not a worthless piece of trash

Wednesday, November 16, 2016

This past weekend a top executive at George Mason University called you and all people who agree with NOM, "a worthless piece of trash" simply for believing in the truth of marriage as the union of one man and one woman. This university executive, Andrew Bunting, is a senior admissions official with influence over deciding who can attend GMU, which is Virginia's largest taxpayer financed university.

We are not going to sit still and let a taxpayer-funded university insult and discriminate against NOM's supporters, including Christians and people of faith. Please sign our petition today demanding that George Mason University repudiate the statements of this top executive, and remove this individual from any role in determining who is admitted to the university.

Sign the Petition!

Can you imagine the outcry and the media outrage that would exist if a university official were to call a supporter of the Human Rights Campaign a "worthless piece of trash"?! There would be calls for his immediate dismissal, government investigations into the university would be launched and the left would demand the Justice Department look into whether a hate crime had been committed!

But because this hate speech was directed at supporters of marriage and people of faith, it is being given a pass by the mainstream media, and the university community. GMU's president, Angel Cabrera, hasn't said a word to take back, apologize for or reject this hateful approach.

It's time to let George Mason University know that their hateful attitudes toward NOM's supporters and discrimination against Christians and people of faith who subscribe to a biblical understanding of marriage will not be tolerated.

Please sign our petition today demanding that GMU repudiate these hateful comments and replace the admissions officer responsible for making them.

 

Public universities should be a place of intellectual honesty and diversity, a place where civil discourse and debate can occur among people with a variety of points of view. There is no place for taxpayer-paid university executives to call social conservatives and people who believe in marriage and religious liberty a "worthless piece of trash." This sort of bias is beyond the pale in a civil society.

Please show your disapproval of this discriminatory, biased attitude toward Christians and NOM supporters by signing our petition demanding that GMU repudiate the comments of its top executive and remove him from any role in determining who will attend the university.

What kind of chance do you think that Christians and other people of faith who support marriage have of attending GMU, or succeeding if they happen to get admitted? The answer is obvious.

Act today to express your disapproval and outrage over the hateful attitudes of George Mason University.

Faithfully,

Brian S Brown

PS – After you have signed our petition, please use the buttons below to share it on social media and among your email contacts. GMU needs to hear from supporters of NOM that their bigoted, biased attitudes will not be tolerated. Thank you.

worthless piece of trash

Monday, November 14, 2016

Worthless piece of trash...That's what an admissions director from Virginia's largest public University, George Mason, recently said about National Organization for Marriage supporters.

The story is all over the internet and is at the end of this email. But the screen shot below pretty much sums it up.

 

I don't know about you, but all this does is energize me. We’ll have more to say shortly about this particular situation with George Mason University, but we’re not going to be intimidated or step down from the truth, and the more our opponents spread lies about us, the more firmly we are committed to standing together for the truth of marriage.

Because same-sex marriage activists are now concerned. They're concerned that what they created through an unjust court decision may eventually be undone. They're concerned that the next step in their agenda, stripping the truth of gender from our children, may not be so easy to accomplish.

They thought that we would just close our doors after the Obergefell decision.

But they were wrong.

Not only did we not shut down, we laid out a plan to restore marriage in law and culture and to defend religious liberty.

We've got a lot to do, and we all need to be in this together. We've a laid out our plan. It's clear. It's direct. It's something we can all take part in.

But right now we need to grow our movement. We need to amplify our voice.

We need you now.

I'm in for $40 IMMEDIATELY >>

I'm in for $50 IMMEDIATELY >>

I'm in for $75 IMMEDIATELY >>

I'm in for more IMMEDIATELY >>

We need you to follow us on Twitter, to like us on Facebook, to boldly send our materials to your friends and family and ask them to do the same.

We won't sit back and be dismissed as "worthless" pieces of "trash". But in the way that great Americans always have, we will fight back with our voices, with our lives, with all of our being for those great truths that no Court can change: that the family is the basis of a just society, and at the root of the family is the beautiful reality of male and female, husband and wife, mother and father.

That's something worth fighting for, don't you think?

Well, let's get to it.

The Plan

Wednesday, November 9, 2016

Donald Trump has won a historic election, an unprecedented victory that has turned the establishment upside down. We heartily congratulate him and his team on their incredible win. President-elect Trump will now turn his attention to governing, and NOM is committed to working with him. We are confident that our voice and our views will be important in a Trump administration.

Here is our plan:

  • We will work with President Trump to nominate conservative justices to the U.S. Supreme Court, individuals who will adhere to the words and meaning of the constitution. Such justices will inevitably reverse the anti-constitutional ruling of the Supreme Court imposing same-sex 'marriage' on the nation in the Obergefell decision, because that decision lacked any basis in the constitution.
  • We will work with President Trump to rescind the illegal, over-reaching executive orders and directives issued by President Obama, including his dangerous "gender identity" directives, attempting to redefine gender just as he sought to redefine marriage.
  • We will work with President Trump to reverse policies of the Obama administration that seek to coerce other countries into accepting same-sex 'marriage' as a condition of receiving US assistance and aid. It is fundamentally wrong for a president to become a lobbyist for the LGBT agenda, and we are confident that will end in the Trump administration.
  • We will work with President Trump and Congress to pass the First Amendment Defense Act (FADA), which Mr. Trump supports. FADA is critical legislation to protect people who believe in marriage from being targeted by the government for persecution.

This is a bright and exciting time for NOM, and we are committed to taking full advantage of the opportunity we have. Our voice and our views matter to the incoming administration, and that means your voice and views matter.

To make sure that we can influence the policy debates that are coming, we need to step-up our communications. The first step is to grow our presence on social media. Please act today to follow NOM and me on Twitter, and to like us on Facebook.

It only takes a few seconds to follow us on Twitter and to like us on Facebook, but doing so will help us increase our ability to educate and mobilize our supporters.

We're excited about the future, and we are looking forward to work with the Trump administration to restore marriage, uphold gender, protect religious liberty and promote families.

Faithfully,

Brian S Brown

stopping bullies



LGBT activists and the left often talk about the need to reduce bullying as a means of justifying their extreme agenda. They want to play on the emotions of the American people to portray gays, lesbians and the transgender as victims of intolerance and harassment. But the reality is much different — it's believers in traditional values and morality who are victims of bullying, often by activists in the LGBT community.

NOM is at the forefront of the effort to protect Christians and other people of faith from being discriminated against simply for standing for the truth of marriage, gender and religious liberty.

Donate now to show your immediate support!

We are also at the forefront of the effort to fight President Obama, Hillary Clinton, LGBT extremists and their allies in big corporations and Hollywood from redefining gender and allowing men, including convicted sex offenders and pedophiles, from gaining access to intimate facilities like bathrooms and showers that are reserved for girls and women.

We are making great progress and are on a path toward victory.

We have a real opportunity to advance the First Amendment Defense Act this fall after the election.

And just last week, we won a tremendous victory when the US Supreme Court agreed with our request to accept the G.G. case, giving us the opportunity to defeat the dangerous gender agenda being advanced by President Obama, Hillary Clinton and LGBT extremists.

NOM filed a brief with the Supreme Court asking them to accept the G.G. case, and now that this case will be decided by our country's highest court, we can put an end to attempts by the left to redefine "sex" under federal law to mean "gender identity" and then declare it "discrimination" to prevent someone who "identifies" as the opposite gender from accessing intimate facilities like showers and locker room reserved for that gender.

But we can't protect the right of Americans to believe in marriage and defend the reality of gender without the financial resources we need to be effective. Please help us capitalize on the opportunities before us by making a financial contribution today of $25, $35, $50, $100, $250 or $500 or more.

You can make a difference.
Donate Now!

If you will make an investment in our mission, a group of supporters has come forward to match dollar-for-dollar anything you give to support NOM. Your gift of $35 will result in us receiving $70 to undertake our critical work. Please act today with your most generous gift, which will double in effectiveness thanks to this matching gift opportunity.

We believe that we have an excellent opportunity of prevailing in the G.G. case, and in advancing key elements of the First Amendment Defense Act. The US Supreme Court has not only agreed to take the G.G. case, but they already have issued an order in this very case preventing President Obama's dangerous "gender identity" agenda.

But in order for us to be successful, we are turning to our members for the financial help we need. Please make the most generous financial contribution you can today, which will be matched dollar for dollar.

Only you know what amount is right for your family to contribute. Whether you can give $10, $100 or $1,000 or more, please act today so that we can move forward full speed ahead to fight to restore marriage, protect marriage supporters from discrimination, and prevent girls and women from being confronted by men, including pedophiles and convicted sex offenders, in bathrooms, showers and locker rooms.

Faithfully,

defeating obama/clinton gender agenda



In the media frenzy surrounding the latest email scandal announcement, you may have missed word from the US Supreme Court that they have granted review of the G.G. case, giving us the opportunity to defeat the dangerous gender agenda being advanced by President Obama, Hillary Clinton and LGBT extremists.

NOM filed a brief with the Supreme Court asking them to accept the G.G. case, and we are very pleased they agreed to do so. This tremendous victory gives us an incredible opportunity to put an end to attempts by the left to redefine "sex" under federal law to mean "gender identity" and then declare it "discrimination" to prevent someone who "identifies" as the opposite gender from accessing intimate facilities like showers and locker room reserved for that gender.

Please help us capitalize on this tremendous victory in the US Supreme Court by making a financial contribution to allow us to file a ground-breaking, game-changing brief pointing out why President Obama and LGBT extremists must be stopped, and to making sure that our position is adopted as the law of the land by our highest court.

Your immediate gift of $25, $35, $50, $100, $250 or $500 or more will provide the seed money we need to move forward with the necessary planning, research and development required to make the kind of public and legal stand that must be made to stop this dangerous gender ideology.

Fortunately, a group of fellow NOM members have come together to match dollar-for-dollar anything you give to support our brief before the Supreme Court. Your gift of $35 will result in NOM receiving $70 to undertake work in this critical case. Please act today with your most generous gift, which will double in effectiveness thanks to this matching gift opportunity.

Double the Impact of Your Support!

We believe that we have an excellent opportunity of prevailing in this case, because President Obama has no legal authority to do what he has done, and because the US Supreme Court has already issued an order stopping his policy from going into effect in this very case.

But make no mistake — we are not merely preparing a staid legal argument that will be of interest only to lawyers and those who follow legal procedure. We are working on a compelling, engaging legal presentation supported by a game-changing communications strategy to convince opinion leaders, elected officials and our fellow citizens of the urgency for the Court to act immediately to stop this dangerous gender ideology from being imposed on our children and grandchildren.

But in order for us to be successful, we are turning to our members for the financial help we need. There is a tremendous amount of work necessary to prevail in a case such as this, one of the most important in the country’s history. Please make the most generous financial contribution you can today, which will be matched dollar for dollar.

We are going to spare no expense in preparing the most compelling, clear and convincing argument possible to defeat President Obama and Hillary Clinton from allowing biological males from forcing themselves into girls’ bathrooms, showers and locker rooms in our nation’s public schools.

And if we can stop them from redefining gender when it comes to public education, we can stop them in every other sector of society.

As a member of NOM, please act today with a gift of $25, $50, $75, $100, or $250 or more, which will be matched dollar for dollar. Only you know what amount is right for your family to contribute. Whether you can give $10, $100 or $1,000 or more, please act today so that we can move forward with all the hard work needed to prepare to win this critical case before the US Supreme Court.

Faithfully,

Brian S Brown


PS — Our victory in convincing the US Supreme Court to take the G.G. case is a really big deal. Now we have the chance to put an end to the dangerous ideology that men can be women if they "identify" as such, and vice versa. Please make a generous financial contribution as part of this incredible matching gift opportunity so that we can get right to work on our brief and communications planning. Thank you.

money left on the table



With everything going on with the election and all the noise out there in the culture, it’s easy for people to have missed the big announcement last week that a generous group of donors has come together to match every contribution we receive for the balance of the year up to a total of $100,000!

While some of our supporters have stepped up with a gift so that we can access an equal amount from the matching funds, many people have not yet contributed. We've raised less than 10% of what we need, meaning that right now over 90% of the matching funds represents money that is being left on the table.

Please act today by making an immediate financial contribution so that we can take advantage of the opportunity that has been made available.

Double the Impact of Your Support!

This is the most important time of year for NOM, as we head into the final period of critical elections, and then prepare to advance our agenda in the aftermath of the election. Your gift of $25, $35, $50, $100 or even $250 or more will make a tremendous difference to us. Not only will it help us pursue the critical work we have before us, but it will double in effectiveness thanks to the match that has been offered.

We have a tremendous group of committed supporters, and we're so grateful that several of them have come together to offer to match every contribution we receive, dollar for dollar, up to a total of $100,000.

Please make an immediate gift of $25, $35, $50, $100 or even $250 or more, which will double in effectiveness thanks to this matching gift opportunity.

Your generosity at this time is urgently needed.

stop convicted sex offenders



Not long ago, North Carolina's governor, Pat McCrory, signed an important common-sense law stopping men from gaining access to intimate facilities like restrooms and showers that are reserved for girls and women. We strongly applaud Governor McCrory‘s leadership, but the left has gone crazy — targeting him for defeat with hateful, orchestrated attacks.

Governor McCrory's opponent, state Attorney General Roy Cooper, has come out in favor of allowing men into women's restrooms, and he's raising millions from LGBT extremists.

What Roy Cooper isn't telling voters is that he's siding with convicted sex offenders like Chad Sevearance-Turner who helped lead the campaign in Charlotte to open female restrooms and showers to men like him.

We've got to stop Roy Cooper and those that are backing his dangerous bathroom policy.

That's why NOM has co-sponsored this powerful new TV ad with our friends and allies at the NC Values Coalition. Please watch it now and contribute anything you can to get this powerful ad in front of as many North Carolina voters as possible.

Please help us make sure that voters across North Carolina see this powerful new ad by making an immediate financial contribution of $25, $50, $75, $100, $250 or even $500 or more.

Help voters see this powerful ad

We've got to make sure that voters realize that Roy Cooper is siding with convicted sex offenders against the privacy and safety of girls and women in North Carolina. That's why we're pouring every available dollar into this advertising campaign.

But we're way short of what we need to raise, which is why I am turning to you. Please, if there's any way that you can make an emergency contribution to get this ad on the air, it could make a tremendous difference.

The outcome of this race goes way beyond the borders of North Carolina. If Roy Cooper defeats Governor Pat McCrory, the media and LGBT extremists will spin it such that few other elected officials will want to take on the LGBT lobby and their allies in corporate America, Hollywood and big-time sports.

However, if Gov. McCrory defeats Roy Cooper, it will send a message to officials all over the country that standing for the truth of marriage and gender are winning issues, ones they can be confident the people support.

The stakes are extremely high. Please make a generous contribution of $25, $50, $75, $100, $250 or $500 or more to make sure this powerful advertisement is seen by voters across North Carolina.

Faithfully,

Brian S Brown


PS — We don't have the millions that our opponents do, but we know North Carolina and have won major campaigns there before. I served on the executive committee of the successful statewide campaign to amend the state constitution to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman. We won by over 62 percent. We need your help again. Now. Let's get this ad out together.

Big News That Will Boost NOM



Dear Marriage Supporter,

I've got some great news that couldn't come at a better time for NOM: As we enter the most important period of the year, a group of generous donors have stepped forward with an offer to match every contribution we receive, dollar for dollar, up to a total of $100,000!

Will you be one of our supporters who make an immediate financial contribution so that we can begin to tap into the matching funds that have been made available?

Your gift of $25, $35, $50, $100 or even $250 or more will make a tremendous difference to us. Not only will it help us pursue the critical work we have before us, but it will double in effectiveness thanks to the match that has been offered.

Act Today

We are in the most important period of the year for NOM, with only ten weeks left to make a difference this year for marriage, religious liberty, and opposition to the dangerous gender ideology of LGBT extremists and the Obama administration.

  • We're working in Washington, DC to push the First Amendment Defense Act (FADA). There will be opportunities this fall where FADA could be advanced through various legislative avenues, and we are preparing for those opportunities.

  • We're urging the US Supreme Court to take up a critical case out of Virginia that will give us the ability to stop President Obama's attempt to force his dangerous gender ideology on our children and grandchildren. Our brief to SCOTUS is being considered right now.

  • We're working to elect key champions for marriage, religious liberty and gender clarity to high office by educating voters in key states about the issues and the candidates. This includes working to keep control of the US Senate and House, and supporting champions in critical state contests.

  • We're working on important educational materials to promote marriage, religious liberty and the reality of gender. Our adversaries are working overtime to redefine these issues, and we're on the front lines battling for the truth.

All of these projects, and the other work that we have underway, are critical to the future of the country. And all of them require resources to pursue.

That's why we're so grateful that a group of donors have offered to match every contribution we receive, dollar for dollar, up to a total of $100,000.

Please make an immediate gift of $25, $35, $50, $100 or even $250 or more, which will double in effectiveness thanks to this matching gift opportunity.

Double Your Donation Today

Your generosity at this time is urgently needed.

Some people make a tremendous sacrifice by carving out $10 from their monthly budget and donating it to NOM. We are so grateful for such a sacrifice. Other supporters have more financial flexibility and can manage a larger donation to support our work.

Whether you are able to donate $10, $100 or $1,000, please act today so that we can begin to access the matching funds that have been made available to us.

We are very grateful for all you've done to support us, and to stand for the truth of marriage, religious liberty and gender. Please act today with an additional show of support, which will be matched dollar for dollar.

Faithfully,

NOM Makes Major Endorsement



Marriage Supporter — I want you to be among the first to know that the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) has endorsed Dr. John Fleming in the race for US Senate in Louisiana. Here is a video that we produced to explain our endorsement of this outstanding champion for marriage, life and religious liberty.

The presidential election obviously has occupied most of the political discussion this year, but with just over three weeks left before Election Day, there are a number of critical races where NOM can make a difference in helping retain control of the US Senate and key governorships, and win other state elections. Keeping the Louisiana Senate race in GOP hands is essential if we are to prevent the confirmation of liberal Supreme Court justices and inhibit the next administration from continuing President Obama's dangerous policies on redefining marriage, religious liberty and gender.

Producing individual videos to announce our endorsement and educate voters allows NOM to ratchet up our effectiveness. But producing videos also costs money, and we need your financial assistance of $25, $35, $50, $100 or $250 or more.

Make an Immediate Impact Today

Not only have videos become one of the most popular forms of communication, but a video makes it more likely that news of our endorsement will be spread on social media and via email by supporters of our endorsed candidate.

We still issue press releases announcing our endorsements (in fact we've invested in sophisticated new systems that allow us to reach more media outlets including bloggers and other influential online voices) but the addition of a video component will help ensure that our views become more prominent in the debate. It's also a way of bypassing the traditional media which tends to cover state elections like a horserace — focusing on polling and fundraising rather than the important issues at stake in the race.

Our team is hard at work producing a number of additional educational endorsement videos in critical races across the country, but we need your help to complete the task. Video production can be expensive, and we need to raise $5,200 to finish the videos we have in the pipeline.

Please make an immediate financial contribution of whatever you can afford — $25, $35, $50, $100 or even $250 or more — so that we know we'll have the resources we need to make an impact in critical races by informing voters about the candidates' records.

We only have a short period of time to get this important work completed, and we're counting on you to help erase the $5,200 shortfall we are facing. Please act today with the most generous gift you can make. Some of our supporters have been blessed with resources and can give $500 or more. If that is your circumstance, please do so today. But whether you can give $10 or $1,000, it's important that we hear from you right away so our team knows that we'll have the resources to finish this critical work.

No Matter the Size,
Every Gift is Needed and Appreciated

In some of the state races where we can make a difference, the information we're providing is essential. Oftentimes voters don't know the real facts about the candidates, and they have little way to determine them because the mainstream media doesn't report on issues. Politicians are experts at spinning, and in low-information races they spin like crazy. But once we release an endorsement video, voters have a clear and understandable explanation of the facts, and it becomes much harder for politicians to spin away from their record.

Please act today with a contribution of $25, $35, $50, $100, $250 or $500 or more. Thank you.

Faithfully,

Brian S Brown


PS — In addition to making a contribution to support NOM, please also support Dr. John Fleming directly in his race for US Senate in Louisiana. As we make clear in our endorsement video. Dr. Fleming is exactly the kind of champion for marriage, life and religious liberty we need in the US Senate. He deserves our support.
