The 2014 Vision Awards helped raise funds needed to support a wide range of New York City’s diverse LGBTQ community organizations. The Vision Awards is one of many fundraising events to help raise money for various non-profits throughout the metropolitan area. Stonewall Community Foundation has invested more than $17 million in over 600 organizations. One of fifteen LGBTQ public foundations in the country, Stonewall works to strengthen the LGBTQ community by engaging and mobilizing donors as well as investing in dynamic organizations.

While co-host Bevy Smith and Emil Wilbekin honored those who inspire social change, guests included Damon Peruzzi, Chef Roble, Bravo’s Fashion Queens Derek J and Lawrence and a special performance by British singer-songwriter Daley.
