Investing in Community Organizations

For decades, community organizations throughout the Northwest have worked tirelessly to build a better, safer, and more inclusive world for LGBTQ communities in every corner of our region. Our grants fund ideas, projects, and strategies from community organizations that work to enhance the lives and address the needs of LGBTQ youth, adults, and families.

Community Grants

We Respond to Urgent Needs

Emboldened by new policies, hateful and violent incidents against LGBTQ people are on the rise in our communities. That’s why our Rapid Response Fund offers grants to counter new and renewed threats at local and national levels against the hard-fought legal, economic, and cultural advances our communities have made.

Supporting Immigrants and Refugees in Oregon

The Oregon Immigrant and Refugee Funders Collaborative is a coordinated and nimble funding approach to address issues impacting immigrants and refugees in Oregon, and to support local organizations responding to these issues.
