What We Are Looking for

To successfully unite our diverse community, we are looking to increase availability and access to programs, services, and social environments for LGBT residents within existing organizations and institutions that traditionally cater to the mainstream population. We will support organizations and institutions that create a culture to openly welcome and include LGBT residents who seek inclusion and acceptance outside of the LGBT community. For more information on this issue, please read our special report: Broward Pride: A Report to the Community.

The Foundation seeks to catalyze institutional culture change within organizations to openly welcome and include LGBT residents. Think outside the box and submit your best and most creative proposal that will:

  • Increase LGBT access to and inclusion within programming at "mainstream" organizations to address needs and gaps in services for LGBT residents to create a culture of acceptance.
  • Make available safe spaces within the broader community where gay and straight residents interact and share experiences.
  • Reduce stigma and discrimination to promote equal rights, fair treatment and access to the same opportunities and benefits for LGBT residents as afforded to the "mainstream" community and create more straight allies.
