Charlotte Lesbian and Gay Fund
The mission of the Charlotte Lesbian and Gay Fund is to cultivate one community that supports lesbian and gay individuals and families, with the belief that all people should be treated with equal respect and dignity in all facets of the community.
The Charlotte Lesbian and Gay Fund (the Fund) was created to positively impact the underfunding of nonprofit organizations serving the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. The Fund award grants to organizations that support the LGBT community, as well as bridge building initiatives that seek to cultivate alliances and support with the non-gay community in Charlotte-Mecklenburg.
The Fund is a collective giving fund and endowment initiative of Foundation For The Carolinas, and contributions are tax deductible. Click here to donate to the Charlotte Lesbian and Gay Fund.
