Pride Foundation
Pride Foundation to Fund Programs in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Community in Northwest States

Deadline: August 22, 2003

The Pride Foundation ( http://www.pridefoundation.org/ ) is a community foundation working to strengthen the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community. Pride funds a wide range of projects, primarily in Washington State and extending to the four neighboring states of Oregon, Montana, Idaho, and Alaska.

In keeping with its mission, Pride has announced its Fall 2003 Granting Cycle, during which the foundation anticipates granting $80,000. The foundation will strive to balance funds awarded to projects in education, advocacy, and outreach; HIV/AIDS; arts and recreation; youth and family services; lesbian health; and other health and community services.

To be eligible for funding, an organization must have 501(c)(3) nonprofit tax status or be affiliated with an organization that has 501(c)(3) status that will assume fiscal responsibility for all funds received and expended. (Grants to individuals cannot be considered.) Projects or programs must directly benefit the lesbian, gay, trans- gender, and bisexual community; people affected by HIV/AIDS; and/or their friends and families.

The maximum grant award is $5,000. Project or program support will be considered for projects/programs that target lesbian, gay, bisexual, and/or transgender people, and/or their families and friends. General operating support will be considered for those organizations that target services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and/or transgender people, with an emphasis on small grassroots organizations.

Complete program guidelines and forms are available at the Pride Foundation Web site.
