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
