The Community Foundation is pleased to announce that the 2020 LGBTQ Grant application period opens March 5, 2020. Applications are due by midnight, Friday, May 15, 2020.
Grants will be awarded to non-profit organizations in Central Alabama (Blount, Jefferson, Shelby, St. Clair and Walker counties) that serve the LGBTQ community and their allies, or seek to expand existing programs to be inclusive and affirming of persons who identify as LGBTQ.
Priority will be given to proposals that specifically address the needs of LGBTQ communities that have been most demonstrably underserved, including but not limited to, communities of color, youth, seniors, transgender individuals, gender-nonconforming persons, people with disabilities and persons in rural communities. Priority will also be given to intersectional programs addressing immigrant advocacy, economic justice, faith and acceptance.
