LGBTQ+ EQUITY FUND
Foundations, corporations, and individual partners are coming together to ensure the safety, rights, and well-being of our LGBTQ+ family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and classmates in South Florida.
LGBTQ+ EQUITY FUND
GRANT PARTNERS – ROUND 1
Last year, the Trevor Project reported that 42% of LGBTQ+ youth seriously contemplated suicide, and 75% experienced discrimination. These numbers are startling and call upon us to step up and care for this important part of our community. Our first round of grants focuses on organizations that provide critical mental health resources, safe spaces, and support for LGBTQ+ youth.
Gifts of all sizes matter and we encourage you to join us in supporting them through their direct donation links. We also believe in the power of collaborative giving and encourage you to join the collaborative LGBTQ+ Equity Fund here.
LGBTQ+ Community Organizations
In addition to the grant partners above, there are numerous nonprofits strengthening the LGBTQ+ community in South Florida. We look forward to continued investment in these organizations and encourage you to consider supporting them as well. The list of LGBTQ+ organizations that raised funds on Give Miami Day can be found here.
If you have a suggestion for additional organizations for this collaborative to consider, we would love to hear from you and ask that you please reach out to us here.
