BAMM 2024

Next year will be the 10th ever BAMM Pride Summit - and we want to make it better than ever! And to help that happen, we are launching a BAMM Pride specific fundraiser! You can visit our fundraising page to donate and learn more. An announcement of the date will be sent out shortly, but it will likely once again be in May!

Over the past 10 years, the BAMM Pride Summit has become an event that provides hundreds of LBGTQIA+ youth from across Michigan the space to be themselves and connect with others. While the first three summits were supported by a grant from the US Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health (OASH), Grand Valley State University's sponsorship has helped the BAMM Pride Summit continue to grow.

MOASH is committed to keeping BAMM a free event for all attendees, but with rising costs and no dedicated grant funding, the event is increasingly expensive to host each year. ALL donations to this campaign will go directly to supporting the cost of the Summit. Youth thrive when they have the support of their community, so please help us provide community to hundreds of youth in Michigan. We will include the names of all who donate (that choose to be included) in the program for our 10th annual summit!

No participant is required to donate anything and you can still attend next year without donating!
