About this funder:
Gay Community Endowment Fund
Full inclusion for everyone
One of the community foundation’s most important values is inclusiveness, and no fund embraces that more than the Gay Community Endowment Fund.
Established in 2001, the mission of the Gay Community Endowment Fund is to advance a lived equality for all LGBTQ+ people in Greater Akron. The fund accepts grant applications for programs that benefit the local LGBTQ+ community and Greater Akron as a whole.
Since its founding, the Gay Community Endowment Fund has invested nearly $475,000 into local causes that change the lives of LGBTQ+ people in our community. Recent grants have educated court advocates about same-sex parenting, funded support groups for LGBTQ+ senior citizens, and provided housing for homeless LGBTQ+ teens.
The Gay Community Endowment Fund serves as a catalyst for the full participation of LGBTQ+ people in our community and in society. Its grants support programs that positively impact lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and Greater Akron as a whole. Areas of focus include LGBTQ+ youth programs, the arts, health and wellness, and other programs that advance the fund’s mission.
