Last year, the Inaugural LGBT Lee County Black and White Ball was sponsored by Equality Florida with proceeds supporting LGBT political needs throughout the state.

Proceeds from this years’ fabulous event will remain in South West Florida and donated to the LGBT Community Fund of Southwest Florida a fund of Southwest Florida Community Foundation.

The LGBT Community Fund of Southwest Florida is a giving circle that supports emerging needs in the LGBT community in Southwest Florida.  The fund engages like-minded individuals and organizations to increase philanthropic support for the unique challenges and opportunities facing Southwest Florida’s LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) community.  Visit our fund website at www.LGBTSWFL.com for more information on the LGBT Fund.

Grant making from the LGBT Community Fund is research-based.  By researching local, national and state statistics, the committee has identified the following areas in the SWFL region in need of assistance.

AN EVENING OF SILVER AND GOLD

  • Homelessness
  • Emergency housing for LGBT youth
  • Elder Care / Senior Housing
  • HIV prevention education and treatment
  • Suicide prevention / mental health

All contributions, from the fund, will be granted out each giving year to meet the needs of the community. Contributors who give $250 within the year will have a vote to determine grant focus areas.
