The actor-humanitarian’s donation will benefit the organization’s marriage equality efforts.

Brad Pitt has donated $100,000 to the Human Rights Campaign’s National Marriage Fund, the organization announced Wednesday.

“It’s unbelievable to me that people’s lives and relationships are literally being voted on in a matter of days. In Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington, voters will go to the polls to decide if gay and lesbian couples – our friends and neighbors – are worthy of the same protections as everyone else. But that’s the system we have and I’m not going to back down from the fight for loving and committed couples to have the ability to marry,” Pitt said in a statement on the group’s website.

Pitt will match donations up to $100,000 as the HRC — ramps up its marriage equality Election Day operations. The actor has publicly supported the cause in the past with his 2008 donation of $100,000 to campaigns to strike down California’s Proposition 8, which banned gay marriage and is now waiting to be reviewed by the Supreme Court.

HRC president Chad Griffin is a board member of Pitt’s New Orleans-based Make It Right Foundation, which he founded after Hurricane Katrina to rebuild homes in the city’s Lower Ninth Ward.

    I have contributed money toward the Human Rights Campaign in support of my niece, Jeylena Price, who is marrying her partner on May 18, 2013 at Lake of Three Fires, Iowa. I love that Brad is matching the contributions. Though Iowa recognizes same-sex marriages, I wanted to contribute to allow other states the same right. My niece and her partner live in Missouri. I personally am straight, but I belive each person should choose their own sexuality and have the rights that marriage allows when they are married. Thank you Brad!!!
