    I have a friend who helped start Ohio's first gay friendly wrestling club. It's part of a bigger organization called Wrestling without Borders. They meet at a YMCA here in Columbus but are in desperate need of new mats and equipment. What is the best way for them to get donations?

    Kickstarter. It's not just for films.

    Bake sales. Or better yet, suburban supermarket baking demos in their singlets. Take it to the masses!

    Brute Wrestling and ASICS both give a lot of grants for wrestling programs.I don't remember ever hearing of them supporting a gay wrestling club but it's worth a try.Is this the same Wrestling Without Borders who send teams to other countries as a sort of diplomatic mission? If so I think they are under the same umbrella organization as Doctors Without Borders and probably have some funding available.
