About the Fund

The LGBT Community Fund of Southwest Florida is referred to as a “multi-donor fund,” which is a giving circle that engages like-minded individuals and organizations to increase philanthropic support in Southwest Florida for the unique challenges and opportunities facing Southwest Florida’s LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) community.


Be Part, Give Your Way

Have it your way.  You can simply give to support the fund, make a gift in honor or a memorial gift in memory of someone special, or you can become an LGBT Community Fund Contributor with a gift of $250 or more during the year to have a voice in the choice of grantmaking.

How We Grant 

Grantmaking from the LGBT Community Fund is research-based.  Through research, the fund’s steering committee will identify the greatest needs in the SWFL region for the Fund’s granting focus. Contributors to the Fund of $250 or more are considered Fund Contributors and will have voting privileges on that year’s grants focus area selection.
