Who We Are
The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender & Straight (LGBT&S) Alliance Fund connects donors with projects that benefit the LGBT community in Southern Arizona, through annual competitive grant rounds. The Fund provides donors with a way to channel their charitable investments into efforts that are likely to affect the issues they’re most concerned with.
The Alliance Fund was created in 1999 by the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona in partnership with the National Lesbian and Gay Community Funding Partnership. The Alliance Fund addresses a chronic pattern of under-funding of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender programs and supports efforts to address these issues through philanthropy and endowment building. Since its inception, the Fund has awarded more than 100 grants to more than 40 different organizations totaling over a half-million dollars.
