Kim Kardashian has donated $50,000 to The Trevor Project to help troubled LGBT teens.

California-based The Trevor Project focuses on crisis and suicide prevention efforts for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth. The non-profit's Lifeline is the nation's only 24-hour, toll-free confidential suicide prevention hotline for gay and questioning young people.

Kardashian, a co-star of the E! reality series Kourtney and Kim Take New York, picked The Trevor Project as her charity when she participated in a charity event organized by investment bank Cantor Fitzgerald in September. The bank gives away millions of dollars in honor of their employees who died during the September 11 terrorist attack.

“It's important to Kim to support The Trevor Project because lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people face extreme levels of hate and discrimination in her generation and she knows that they need safe places like the Trevor Project to turn for help,” an unnamed source told

Other celebrities supporting The Trevor Project include actors Daniel Radcliffe, Neil Patrick Harris, Chris Colfer and Darren Criss and singers Adam Lambert, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga.
