Maybe. As outlined in our priorities, we are primarily focused on supporting smaller, grassroots, LGBTQ+ led and serving organizations who don’t have access to mainstream funding sources. We understand that in some places and communities, this work sometimes falls within organizations whose work is not only LGBTQ+ focused.
If your organization is the only source of support for LGBTQ+ people in your community, you likely would be a fit.
If your organization is led by QTBIPOC folks who are leading inherently from an intersectional perspective, you also are likely a fit. We understand that because of racism queer and trans folks of color may not have found space within the larger LGBTQ+ movement to do this work. As part of Pride Foundation’s racial equity work, we recognize the importance of expanding how LGBTQ+ advocacy and movement building looks in communities of color.
Right now, we can only make grant awards to organizations who are a 501c3 or who are fiscally sponsored by a 501c3. We are working to develop a system that will allow us to make grants to groups who are not fiscally sponsored or have 501c3 status. Please reach out to us if you are in this situation so we can figure out if there are any options to consider in the meantime.
Yes! As long as the work is separate, both groups can apply.
