Grant Thornton honors LGBTQ+ organization with Purple Paladin


Grant Thornton has named Free Mom Hugs as the next recipient of its ongoing Purple Paladin initiative, which aims to help emerging nonprofit organizations move from startups to more sustainable organizations via funding, business advice and volunteer support.

Free Mom Hugs has chapters in all 50 states, with a mission statement to “create allies who support the LGBTQIA+ community through visibility, education and conversation.” The organization helps with such events as pride parades, holiday gatherings, and advocacy activities across the country.

“Somewhere out there, someone needs us,” said Sara Cunningham, Free Mom Hugs founder, in a statement. “We’re here to help people simply show up. And not just moms ― dads, siblings, aunts, uncles, friends ― anyone who is looking for a way to demonstrate their allyship and support the community. We provide those opportunities and are a loving presence that shows up where needed and when others don’t.”

Grant Thornton is also helping develop an “allyship hub” on FMH’s website, providing resources for people to become better LGBTQIA+ allies “at home, work and school.”

“Free Mom Hugs is an organization that is helping build a better world by changing lives, one hug at a time,” said Grant Thornton CEO Brad Preber in a statement. “At Grant Thornton, we share Free Mom Hugs’ vision for a more respectful, enriched community where all individuals are safe, loved and accepted. It’s simple: We all become stronger when all of our voices are heard.”
