We love our community. Each year the Miss Gay Texas Pageant System chooses a nonprofit organization in the community to support. If you would like us to consider your organization please read the following.
Our Mission Statement:
The Miss Gay Texas Pageant System's purpose is to develop and maintain a high quality and professional pageant system and be recognized as the "Symbol of Excellence" within the community that the pageant system serves.
The system also supports men who take the art of female impersonation to a higher level. Annually, the system will donate funds to the community when available.
If you would like to nominate your organization, please fill out the nomination form.
Step 1: Nomination/Referral
Any charitable organization may nominate themselves or may be nominated by an individual.
Step 2: Eligibility
Applicants must be recognized by the IRS as a charitable organization and submit a completed application annually by January 1st. A representative must attend the State Pageant in September (final night minimum) in order to receive any funds. The Miss Gay Texas State Pageant System is seriously committed to raise as much money as possible for our selected organizations. To reciprocate this commitment, we expect a representation from the beneficiary's board of directors and/or other supporters to attend the fundraisers throughout the pageant year. Keeping this in mind, funds will be distributed to the charitable organization based on their participation in any fundraising. Miss Gay Texas State Pageant System reserves the right to use the Charitable Organization's, name, logo and contact information for press, publication and/or website usage.
Applicants should be prepared to give a presentation to the MGTSPS Board, prior to any charity selection.
Step 3: Decision
The governing board will collectively vote on which organization(s) will be the Pageant System's beneficiary. The recipient(s) will be notified by mail.
