How We Give Back
We Are Committed to a More Equitable World for LGBTQI+ People
Lesmon Experience is passionate about giving back to our local and global LGBTQI community in ways that make our world a better place.
We are committed to funding and supporting community and global organizations that defend human and civil rights, eliminate prejudice and discrimination, and support relief for vulnerable populations. As part of this effort, we donate 10% of all our profits to LGBTQI organizations throughout the world.

Here are commonly asked questions about our Partnership Program
How does it work?
For every trip, we choose a non-profit based in the country where we are traveling and we donate 5% of that trip’s profit to that organization. Our travelers are given the option to choose their own organization to donate the 5% of their individual trip.
When someone books a trip with us, we ask them if there is a particular LGBTQI organization where they want their 5% profit donation sent. We send the donations to our partner organizations once per quarter.
How long is this partnership offer valid?
This partnership offer is good for all of our 2022 and 2023 trips. At the end of 2023, we are going to evaluate this system to see what changes would be beneficial for everyone. We will notify all active partners of any upcoming changes in the program.
How do you send us the money?
When we start getting donations for your organization, we will reach out to discuss the best way to get your money to your org, whether it is direct transfer, PayPal, Venmo, CashApp, an old-fashioned paper check in the mail. There are lots of ways to send money these days and we will work with your systems.
How do we get started?
Share this website Lesmon Experience with your community. Tell them to put your organization’s name in the form where it says, “Do you have a particular LGBTQI organization where you would like your donation sent?” And that’s it! We’ll take care of the rest! We’ll reach out to let you know your organization is getting donations and we will work with you to arrange the logistics of money transfer.

We have a fun, new fundraising opportunity! There is a travel company for LGBTQI women, Lesmon Experience, it’s run by two lesbians and they donate 5% of all their profits to LGBTQI organization throughout the world. We can make money whenever any of us purchases a trip and lists our organization as the donation recipient.
People get to go on amazing trips and we make money! It’s super easy! If you have questions, you can reach out directly to the Lesmon Experience owners, Montse and Aimee. They’re super friendly and happy to answer questions!
