LGBTQ Community Fund
Supporting Chicago’s LGBTQ community through philanthropy.
Our Grant Making
Our research informs our grant making focus. In recent grant making cycles, we have supported organizations that serve the LGBTQ community in critical areas such as safety, health, housing, and employment – as well as education, advocacy, and the arts. Our grant recipients serve both senior and youth populations, across sexual orientations and gender identities.
Additionally, our grant making efforts are structured around fostering partnerships with our grant recipients. Site visits by Steering Committee members are a critical component in our grant making process as a means to gain first-hand perspective into community needs, learn about a grant recipient’s mission, and grow together as partners.
