Support The LGBTQ Community Fund

The LGBTQ Community Fund seeks to help existing community organizations and institutions better serve the community’s LGBTQ youth, families and elders.

The goal is not to create a parallel infrastructure to serve the LGBTQ community. Rather, the goal is to build capacity, knowledge and understanding within the organizations serving LGBTQ youth, family and elders, so that they may respond capably and equally to the needs of all constituents, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. The LGBTQ Community Fund is supported by like-minded individuals who give collectively and, as a group, determine the focus of their philanthropy.

Two Funds, Three Ways to Give

The LGBTQ Community Fund makes grants annually to agencies like JASMYN, UNF LGBT Center and PFLAG, thanks to generous donors who contribute each year to the LGBTQ Community Fund for Northeast Florida. We welcome your check, credit card, or shares of appreciated stock in a publicly-traded company or bonds. We can often accept more complicated gifts, like private stock, real estate or certain other personal property. We encourage you to contribute, and if you’d like, become active with the Advisory Board.

But our LGBTQ community needs a more stable form of long-term funding. So, the LGBTQ Community Fund Endowment has been established. An endowment, protects the invested principal and only distributes grants from the earnings, thereby ensuring the fund’s existence in perpetuity. The Chartrand Family and Delores Barr Weaver have seeded the LGBTQ Community Fund Endowment with substantial gifts, and we now have an opportunity to build an enduring financial resource. When fully funded, the Endowment will touch thousands of lives in future generations by creating new and valuable resources to respond to threats, needs, and opportunities that we cannot foresee. Your gift to the Endowment is a promise to support the LGBTQ community—forever.
