OUR FUND ISSUES $10,000 IN GRANTS TO
STONEWALL NATIONAL MUSEUM & ARCHIVES
Stonewall National Museum & Archives was the recipient of $10,000 in grants as a result of an incentive offered to new donors of Our Fund.
South Florida's only LGBT community foundation, Our Fund, offers to grant to a donor's favorite charity 10% of the value of their newly created Fund from a separate Fund which was established by the growing number of Our Fund's founders. The designated charity must be local or statewide and provide services to the LGBT community.
The Paul Fasana & Robert S. Graham Fund and the Jim Stepp & Peter Zimmer Fund, recently created at Our Fund, have taken advantage of this offer and designated their incentive to the Stonewall National Museum & Archives. "We are delighted with the incentive Our Fund is offering and happy to see that Stonewall's donors are working with Our Fund to accomplish their philanthropic goals," said Bryan W. Knicely, President of the Stonewall National Museum & Archives
"Local philanthropists can leverage their charitable investments by adding an additional value to their charitable giving. A new Fund at Our Fund can provide donors with an immediate tax deduction for their gift plus 10% of the value of their gift will be granted to their favorite charity from a separate Fund created by founders of Our Fund to promote philanthropy," explained Anthony Timiraos, CEO/President of Our Fund. "A donor's personalized Fund at Our Fund permits them to periodically recommend public charities that will receive distributions from their Fund."
Our Fund's mission is to promote a culture of philanthropy by uniting donors with organizations supporting the LGBT community. Focused on expanding philanthropy in South Florida and working to develop stronger non-profit organizations, South Florida's only LGBT community foundation has been established to help build endowments that support donor's charitable interest and organizations providing services throughout the LGBT community.
Stonewall National Museum & Archives is an extraordinary publicly accessible cultural and educational resource that preserves, interprets and shares the remarkable heritage of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. The museum's circulating book and film program is the largest in the United States holding over 25,000 books and 1,000 DVDs.
