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.
