How you can make a difference

A tax-exempt community foundation, Our Fund's mission is to promote a culture of philanthropy by uniting donors with organizations supporting the LGBT community.

Our Fund Foundation has a number of various ways in which you can give to the LGBT community - with your current giving or through the planning of your legacy giving after your death.

A legend in the making

What organization or cause has had an impact on your life? What do you want to be remembered for? A planned legacy gift can benefit future generations - all in your name.

Create a permanent legacy

Impact and provide for your chosen charity

Avoid capital gains on appreciated assets

Reduce estate taxes

Make a difference in OUR community

If you have supported various organizations or causes through the course of your life that are very important to you, Legacy Giving allows you to continue to have that impact after your death. Our Fund encourages individuals to be as purposeful with their giving after they are gone as they are while living. By creating a charitable fund from your estate, you will have a lasting impact for future generations.

Our Fund Foundation's iGive Society is our community of generous donors who stand with us to support our mission of increasing philanthropy in the South Florida LGBT non-profit community.

Join iGive Society

iGive Society members give a minimum of $1,500 annually. 50% of the gift provides resources for our grant-making activities to South Florida agencies advancing LGBT causes, and the other 50% helps sustain the operations and mission of Our Fund Foundation as we encourage and support philanthropy in South Florida.

These members are invited to special events throughout the year and are recognized in our publications and website as key members who stand with us in our mission of supporting a more vital non-profit LGBT community in South Florida.

Ease of Tracking/Simplification of Tax Receipts

Avoid capital gains on appreciated assets

Fund your donor advised fund now but give the funds to charities over time and as they need them

How to provide much-needed targeted support

Our Fund has determined five fields of interests that are especially important to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities. Whether you decide to establish your own fund, contribute to a field of interest fund, or give directly to a specific organization, Our Fund is here to make the connection so that you have the best philanthropic choice.

Senior’s Fund is dedicated to improving the lives of LGBT elders through providing resources that give access to important health and social services for seniors

Women’s Fund support programs that focus on the health and well-being of lesbians.

Youth Fund provides grants to organizations that support lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth so that young people can attain their full potential.

Health Fund ensures that LGBT individuals stay healthy by supporting programs designed to prevent health issues affecting the LGBT community, including HIV, sexually transmitted diseases and substance abuse.

Arts & Culture Fund is committed to bolstering a cultural landscape in South Florida that allows for LGBT artistic expression.

In addition, Our Fund supports two free-standing initiatives in partnership with local and national partners:
