LGBTQ+ Community Building and Collaborations – Projects that bring the LGBTQ+ community together and enhance it, as a whole.

One of their guiding principles is to honor the rich diversity of their community and to promote equal opportunities for all people. Awards made by the Foundation’s various grant panels support organizations that do not discriminate in their employment practices, volunteer opportunities or delivery of programs and services on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, gender, age, citizenship, disability, ethnicity, marital status, familial status, economic circumstances and/or veteran status.
Specifically, the LGBTQ+ Alliance Fund is looking for programs and organizations that show dedication to supporting marginalized, unique, and under-represented identities in the LGBTQ+ community. Organizations and projects should provide services, programming, and support of those in the LGBTQ+ community that have been marginalized, discriminated against, or endure undue hardship for their identity within the LGBTQ+ community or any intersection that may compounds their identity.
The applicant must be a 501(c)(3) in good standing, conducting charitable work in Southern Arizona. Grassroots groups that have identified a 501(c)(3) that will act as the fiscal agent may be eligible to apply.
The applicant must have local leadership in the form of a board of directors or advisory committee, local financial support, and local program management and accountability. In the case of nationally sponsored organizations, no portion of the grant can be used to support the national, state or regional entity.
The proposed program must directly benefit the people living in Southern Arizona.
Grants are not made to individuals, for profit organizations, government entities, capital fund drives, agency endowments, individual schools or for sectarian purposes.
The upper limit for grants from the Alliance Fund is generally $5000. Organization may request up to $7,500 in their application. Award amounts will be determined by a grants review committee. In some instances, when an organization can amply demonstrate that their agency or programs will have an extraordinary impact on the LGBTQ+ community, the Alliance Fund may consider awarding grants up to $10,000.
