The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Alliance Fund, a component fund of the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona, envisions a diverse and caring community where philanthropy meets the needs of all the region’s residents.
To that end, the fund awards grants of up to $5,000 to programs in the areas of LGBTQ+ community building and collaborations, transgender issues, youth and elder issues, and general operating support to organizations with a mission and/or that work primarily to support the LGBTQ+ community in southern Arizona). Applications from rural parts of the region are encouraged.
To be eligible, applicant organizations must serve communities in southern Arizona and be considered tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
See the Alliance Fund website for complete program guidelines, information about previously awarded grants, an FAQ, and application instructions.
