Detailed Description

The Charlotte Lesbian and Gay Fund (CLGF) is seeking applications for Programs, Projects, and Events (PPE) Grants with an aim to encourage 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations to serve the LGBT community either directly or in partnership with another organization(s).

The vision of the Charlotte Lesbian and Gay Fund is to cultivate one
community with the belief that all people should be treated with dignity
and respect with a mission to fund organizations that support the LGBTQ community through the pooled financial resources of individuals, corporations and foundations.

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.
